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 wine has bright and vibrant aromatics of freshly crushed currents and subtle spice that compliments a generous and juicy palate with plum, red current and blackberry flavors with a hint of mint. Supple tannin and well balanced acids support the fruit to provide good length and compliment the American oak. Sourced entirely from Pyren Vineyard fruit this wine offers all of the elegance and finesse that you would expect from a Pyrenees Shiraz.

Critical Acclaim

"Inky ruby. Very fresh blend displays scents and flavors of black raspberry, bitter cherry, candied flowers and spices. Round and seamless, with a penetrating quality and impressive finishing clarity."
94 Points

"Focused and distinctive, brimming with mineral accents that weave tar, basalt and pepper accents through the dark berry flavors. Comes together seamlessly on the hard, shiny finish. Best from 2014 through 2018."
91 Points

"A zesty shiraz, this wine's black-pepper scents parallel its throught-line of acidity, focusing the plush, creamy texture and carrying it through a long, generous finish."
