Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.2%

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

A wonderful expression of cool climate Syrah – the gamey side of Syrah is balanced by the elegance and finesse of the cool climate fruit. The 2006 Carneros Syrah has aromas of bright blueberry and raspberry, nutmeg, dark roasted coffee and white pepper. The palate explores hints of toastiness and exhibits flavors of boysenberry and chocolate, ending in a lingering finish of plum and toast with nice acidity. Try this wine with pan seared venison steak and sweet potato mash.

I normally really like most Buena Vista wine's this one was a bit underwhelming.I tend to lean toward Wa State or Aus for Syrah/Shiraz these days. They seem to do it better than most.
