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

Deep Purple color. Layered aromatics: Black Raspberry, Blueberry, Violet, Cedar, Dark Chocolate and hints of Wild Mushroom. Beautifully balanced palate; Black Raspberry, pepper, a hint of Wild Mushroom and Dark Chocolate. Soft tannins and balanced acidity keeps the wine light on it's feet bringing juicy fruits with structure then a beautiful long Dark Chocolate finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A syrah in the rich, black fruited mode, this is lush and round, its power gentled by woodland scents of violets. Serve it cellar temperature with braised beef."
