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

Boysenberries, black pepper, and the scent of sandalwood take center stage. There's intense but harmonious interaction, the nose and palate working together flawlessly. This wine is focused and zesty, as black plums and anise take their cue. The tannins deliver a firm, but very nuanced performance holding the ensemble together. Vibrant acidity contributes to a lively and flowing mouthfeel toward the Grande Finale, a persistent and satisfying finish. A resounding ovation can only be the result for the final act of a wine so well made.

Blend: 86% Zinfandel, 10% Syrah, 4% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

"A little high in alcohol, as is the Paso Robles way, but really a very lush and pleasurable Zinfandel. Softly tannic and slightly sweet, it floods the mouth with ripe flavors of raspberries, black cherries, mocha, cinnamon and pepper."
