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

The Kuljian Vineyard is located off Westside Road in Dry Creek. It sits atop a sandy/loam bench thick with pebbles, rocks and stones. The climate is warm enough to fully ripen Syrah, yet cool enough to produce a wine with structure, elegance and equilibrium. At only 1.5 acres, Kuljian is one of the tiniest vineyards we harvest.

Each year, Kuljian produces concentrated, opulent Syrah. This 2006 is dark, dense and sumptuous. The nose ripe and plum-like, with earth, spice, smoke and leather. Very hedonistic. The palate is full, lush and backed by smooth, well-integrated tannins.

Critical Acclaim

"Both Syrah cuvees are very strong in 2006. The 2006 Syrah Kuljian Vineyard from Dry Creek. is a limited cuvee of less than 200 cases, it is a sumptuous Syrah packed and stacked with blackberry fruit interwoven with notions of camphor, pepper, meat juices, and tar. There is not a hard edge to be found in this oak-aged, unfined, unfiltered Syrah. "

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...
