Alcohol By Volume: 15.5%

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 Phillips brothers planted one of the first Syrah vineyards in California in 1982. With Michael's son Kevin continuing the Phillips grape growing tradition into the 6th generation. This Syrah vineyard was one of the first he tended to as our Vineyard Manager. If you turn the bottle around you will see Kevin's eye looking out from the inside of the bottle, making sure the wine is being enjoyed!

Striking aromas of ripe dark fruits radiate from the glass in an earthy, smoky tobacco context. Full, rich fruit flavors of dark berries, whole plum, and blackcurrant fill the palate and hold their flavors through a long and smooth moderately peppery finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A ridiculously hedonistic bottle of Syrah, this hits you first with it's heady aromas of strong black olive, tobacco and bacon, then seduces you further with layers of rich berry fruit topped by Syrah-proper pepper. Blended with Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot and fairly high alcohol (15.5%) this is one for those who love good Syrah. Editors' Choice."

Style: Earthy & Spicy
Beautiful dark spice flavor balancing with a smooth fruit overtone, and a strong probability that you'll want at least a 2nd glass. The palate doesn't tire of this wine.
