2014 "Renegade" Red BlendPaso Robles California
This absolutely stunning red blend is comprised of Syrah (93%), Malbec (4%) and Petite Verdot (3%) from the Margarita Vineyard near Paso Robles. The wine making vision of Renegade is to craft a rich and boldly-flavored wine with structure and finesse. The Syrah offers a core of dark, luscious fruit with notes of spice; theMelbec provides the juicy, mouth-watering structure; and the Petit Verdot adds structure, intensity and fullness.
The 2013 Renegade opens with extravagant aromas of black fruit, blueberry, vanilla bean and smoked bacon. Flavors of black cherry, black currant and wild raspberry cascade along a plush, mouth-filling texture along with trailing notes of cola, spice and toasty oak, with power yielding to elegance on the finish. 15.2% ABV HWG
