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 2006 Chateau Maris La Touge Syrah is a beautiful purple color. It is a rich and elegant wine with blackberry flavors and cassis and blueberry on the nose. Full bodied with good extraction and well balanced acidity, the tannins are silky smooth. Blueberry flavors lead to a long finish with subtle herbes de Provence and refreshing mocha and vanilla notes.

100% Syrah

Critical Acclaim

"High-toned mint and herbal essences and buddleia floral perfume mingle with scents of ripe black currant in the nose of the Maris 2006 Syrah La Touge, leading to a lush, sweetly-ripe palate, with notes of wet stone and pencil lead offering interest in the finish. This has a wonderfully silken feel, and despite its suggestion of sweetness and its (by estate standards low) 14.5% alcohol, possesses an almost “cool” fresh fruit character, with an invigoratingly tart edge."

The wine was pleasant, full favored with dark berries, excellent for lamb, pork and spicy dishes. I let it breath for 1 hour and it was smoother on the pallet. I have tasted much better syrah,
