  • 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

The Syrah Tous les Jours is a quintisential Santa Ynez Valley Syrah. It is simultaneously bold and balanced, rich and smooth, fruit forward and earthy. It is impossibly dark and full-bodied, without ever going over the top. It is heavily inspired by Northern Rhone Syrah (Hermitage) and Australian Shiraz (Borassa Valley). The aromas and flavors are dominated by black cherry, raspberry, white pepper, forrest floor and toasty oak. It is absolutely unique and special expression of Syrah. Moreover, It is a style that one can enjoy every day.

Critical Acclaim

"Here’s a well-built California syrah that also happens to be a noteworthy value. Sourced from several vineyards scattered throughout the Santa Ynez Valley, this has real definition, its ripeness held in tension against cooling, earthen tannins that feel integrated and appetizing. With mouthwatering flavors that suggest dark plums and dried herbs, it belongs next to a platter of grilled lamb chops. Best Buy."
