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

Bold and bright the 2005 Petite Sirah is loaded with complex varietal characteristics. One can get lost looking into the deep, dark purple ink color of this Petite Sirah. Robust aromas of ripe plums, berries and a hint of black pepper fill the nose, while lush fruit flavors of blackberry, plum and vanilla tantalize the taste buds. This outstanding full-bodied wine has medium tannins with a fresh berry and oak finish.

This wine has a lot of body and tends to go well with beef stews, grilled New York pepper-crusted steak, or chicken cacciatore.
