With an inky purple hue, the aromas start with muddled blackberry and vanilla bean leading to fresh mission fig and black cherry. Deeper aroma layers show toasted sage and sandalwood. On the entry to the palate, flavors include dark chocolate covered cherries with hints of espresso bean, molasses, toasted cardamom, dried cherries and blueberries. The rich and slightly drying finish drives the wine toward the signature oak notes with deep toast and hints of coconut and dark caramel notes. ABV 13.5%

A smaller vintage in terms of volume, 2015 had a below average crop set which led to smaller and deeply concentrated grape clusters. Fruit sourced from both Lodi and Clarksburg came in roughly 50% lighter than previous years. Warm climate Petite Sirah from Lodi added ripe dark cherry nuances with round, supple tannins. Cool climate Petite Sirah from Clarksburg added blackberry with bolder tannins that framed the finish of the blend. Contra Costa Petite Sirah, which grows in sandy soil, added some terroir notes and provided deep color to wine. A touch of Lodi Zinfandel and Sonoma Zinfandel was added to the blend to add a gamey edge and add softness. Tempranillo from Clarksburg does much of the same with lightening the tannic frame while adding black raspberry fruit. Finally, a touch of Clarksburg Merlot added cool climate herbal notes with ripe cherry fruit.
Bold and flavorful, pair this wine with lamb sliders topped with balsamic glazed onion
relish, a strip steak seared with a peppercorn cream sauce alongside roasted root
vegetables, or your favorite wood fired pepperoni pizza.
