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 Walla Walla Syrah has red and blue hues. Aromas of toast, berry cobbler, smoke, charred sugar, struck flint and roasted cherries. Flavors of cooked raspberry, blueberry, hints of spice, big dark berry, toast and oak. it has chewy tannins, a long finish and nice balance.

Critical Acclaim

"Dark, pure and focused, delivering a gorgeous mouthful of rich, rose petal-accented blackberry, black olive and tar flavors that linger enticingly on the polished finish."
93 Points

"From Les Collines, the iconic syrah vineyard owned by Pepper Bridge, this savory, stylish red leads with scents of smoke and dark cherry, the dusty tannins recalling the soils of windblown loess. A hint of Les Collines’ gamey accent adorns the finish, suggesting a pairing of rosemary rubbed lamb chops."
