Alcohol By Volume Guide
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%.
Black plum, dried herbs, undergrowth, earth and lavender. Classic Morrison Lane but more elegant and refined than ever from Walla Walla's oldest Syrah vineyard.
"The 2010 Syrah Morrison Lane (100% Syrah) comes from some of the oldest Syrah vines in Walla Walla. Aged in 30% new French oak, it’s a beauty with notions of black raspberry, kirsch, pepper, big minerality and hints of leather all soaring from the glass. This is followed by a classy, yet structured Syrah that has high quality tannin and rock star length on the finish. As with all of Charles’ wines, it can be enjoyed in its youth due to the texture and overall balance, yet it won’t hit its stride until a handful of years after the vintage. It should age gracefully for 10-12 years, easily. Drink now-2025."
The Wine Advocate
"Lithe, sleek and seductive, focusing the blackberry, currant and sweet spice flavors into a bright beam that shoots through the extended finish, revealing hints of white pepper and cream."
