Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

Deep violet color and heady aromatics of blueberry, spice and fine white pepper are the intriguing introduction to this truly seductive syrah. A bold, viscous palate opens with flavors of fresh-picked blackberries and currants, savory accents and a hint of tar. Mocha, sage and minerals meld with firm tannins and bright acidity to create a complex, memorable finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2007 Syrah Kick Ranch Vineyard exhibits an opaque purple color as well as lots of peppery meat juices intermixed with creme de cassis and blackberries. It is a dense, full-bodied Syrah with a voluminous mouthfeel, powerful fruit flavors, and sweet tannins. A great Syrah, it should drink nicely for a decade or more."
95 Points

"Deep, impressively extracted aromas of black fruits, dark spices, smoky bacon and roasted vanilla beans extend the richness envelope, and, as usual, Hobbs finds a way to blend intensity with a degree of polish and to preserve and present the wine's varietal side in the bargain. Made in a plush, full-bodied style and best mated with savory meats like lamb stews or Boeuf En Daube, this wine is layered with youthful tannins that should allow it to age for many years yet."
94 Points

"Saturated purple color. Explosively perfumed bouquet of fresh red and dark berries, flowers and minerals, with a strong cola quality. Showing more vivacious fruit than the 2006, displaying raspberry, boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors and a late note of black pepper. The finish is sweet, juicy and pliant, betraying no rough edges and clinging tenaciously."

Learn About Sonoma County

Twice as large as Napa in size, Sonoma County only makes about a half the amount of wine as her northeasterly neighbor. But Sonoma, with her size, is able to vouch for more diversity within her borders, including sub-AVAs that are climatically varied. The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
