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 "Biker" came from the west side of Paso Robles with a vengeance. Riding off the hills of Westside Paso from the Dusi and Preston Zin vineryards, where rocky, calcareous soils result in low yield vines, producing fruit of intense concentration. A splash of Mourvedre lends an extra kick in the mid-palate. The Biker has blackberry, anise spice and vanilla on the nose. Rich, black fruit and spice, long in the mouth lingering to a silky vanilla oak finish. A massive in-your-face Zin- taking no prisoners. Biker rocks!

Critical Acclaim

"This is balanced and fruity with delicate jam and spice. Hints of hazelnut. Medium to full body, with fine tannins and a fresh finish."
