Alcohol By Volume: 14.5%

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

Jammy fruit from beginning to end—starting with aromas of blueberry pie, nutmeg and pepper. In the mouth, flavors expand to include boysenberry, plum, blueberry and spice. This full bodied wine has a bold tannin structure and balanced acidity that lead to a long finish. This big wine is anything but "petite."

Critical Acclaim

"A really nice evocation of this variety, this is made in a soft style, with a Merlot-like velvety texture. But there’s nothing shy about the flavors: It bursts with ripe, jammy cherry, grilled pancetta, crushed pepper and sandalwood, and has a long, spicy finish. Best Buy."

This wine was a big surprise. It was easily favored over some very high-end reds at a recent event, and at one quarter the price. It opens up wonderfully in the glass and has enough depth to be enjoyed slowly. We paired it with a New Orleans dinner and it was perfect. Hard to pick a style. It's between big and bold and rich and smooth. At $11/bottle it is a great addition.

Subtle nose of raisin and plenty of fruit in the mouth. Jammy for sure!Smooth tannins. Because I like a big nose I probably won't buy this wine again, but it is very flavorful.Needs a lot of airtime to open!When it does, it is wonderful. It took 3 days under vacuum to reach it's potential.

Enjoyed this. Very dark fruit, like blueberry and plums, and a little peppery spice, but smooth.

Being a Petite fan this suits me fine. It does not have the depth of a higher end Petite but does just fine with burgers or lighter fare.

Not the deepest purple Petite that I have had but it drinks much bigger than $10.99. Smooth with an absence of harsh tannins and with big berries on the front end, this is a real value wine. I would recommend aerating it and then decanting it for one hour before drinking to let it warm up. A real keeper!!

This Petite Sirah is Amazing. The tannins are balanced with rich, lush fruit and the finish is long and complex. A great wine!

Not bad, not memorable. At the price, the Bogle is certainly preferable.

Learn About Petite Sirah

Petite Sirah(peh-TEET seer-AH) Not So Small There is nothing petite about this grape. Petite Sirah, the result of a crossing between Syrah and Peloursin, is also known as Durif. Being the father, Syrah imparted some of its flavors and characteristics to its offspring, but the two grapes are decisively different. Petite Sirah is mostly found in California, where it gained...
