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

This Syrah is full bodied and distinctive with mature fruit and spice that is so characteristic of our Syrah. Complex layers of black cherry, pepper and spice pair with rounded tannins to make a very complete and satisfying wine. Enjoy with roast beef or lamb, game dishes or mature cheese.

Critical Acclaim

"A gorgeous and decadent Syrah with aromas and flavors of black raspberry, black cherry, fudge brownie and coffee ice cream. The lush and creamy mouth is full but not overdone, with a fantastic evolution on the palate from fresh dark fruit to sweet chocolaty flavors and finally pepper flecked spice on the long finish. Balanced and ready to drink now, though you could hold for another couple of years to mellow. "
