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

On the nose, the Syrah offers aromatics of sweet blackberries, tarragon and plum. The balanced palate is elegant and generous, with concentrated dark fruit and silky tannins alongside flavors of boysenberry, dark chocolate and dusty hot rocks. Creamy, French oak notes linger on the persistent finish.

Critical Acclaim

"Generous and easy drinking, with rich, complex dark berry flavors that are smooth-textured, deep and persistent, losing a little traction on the finish, ending with a minerally edge. Drink now through 2017. 800 cases made."
89 Points

"This generous Syrah is reminiscent of a nice, rich Provençal wine. It’s soft and spicy and fruity, with a good grip of tannin. The black raspberry, mulberry and cherry flavors are dusted with cinnamon and clove, and you’ll find a coating of sweet, smoky oak. The vineyard is on Atlas Peak.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...
