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

This Syrah is fruit-driven but definitely not jammy. Dried blueberry, black raspberry and cassis flavors do predominate, but they're bright and juicy. There's a layer of cocoa following the fruit that ends with a dash of black pepper. What we love the most about the wine, however, is the lovely floral notes that come through in the aroma. Lavender is prominent, but other more savory herbs finish.

Pair this Syrah with anything savory. Big soups and stews with lots of herb and spice work well with it, whether they're meaty or vegetarian. Be sure to save some for dessert; dark, bittersweet chocolate is a natural for it.

Blend: 95% Syrah, 4% Grenache, 1% Viognier
