Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

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 2010 Perbruno opens up to dark purple color in the glass. The characteristic tannins of the Syrah are smooth, rich and velvety, Taste of little ripe black fruits as mulberry, cherry and blueberry. On the finish, the wine enjoys good acid structure with hints of spices and pepper.

Critical Acclaim

"The quality of fruit in this expression of Syrah is dark, plush, rich and opulent. The bouquet offers notes of black cherry, prune, smoked bacon, tobacco, white pepper and clove. The tannins are luscious and firm, and there’s plenty of ripe fruit to keep the wine firmly fixed to the palate for many minutes.

Don't think I would rate it as high as WE but personally would give it a good solid 93. (if we all agreed on ratings, life would be boring)Really enjoyed this bottle with a very rare, lightly seasoned, grilled rib eye with roasted vegetables on the side.

Light and fruity. Very enjoyable and would purchase again. Would still prefer the Mark West Pinot Noir, but do like this one.
