WS 92 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Bold and loaded with personality. Aromas of wild berry, cracked pepper and licorice lead to rich, complex flavors of black cherry, dark Asian spice and cinnamon. Grenache, Petite Sirah and Syrah. Drink now through 2023."
Winemakers Notes - "Following the exceptional 2012 vintage, we were fortunate to receive a nearly identical harvest in 2013. The yields were lower, but overall intensity materialized in the vineyards sourced for this complex program. Expanding beyond our existing base, we were able to include new blending components throughout California to make the wine even better and more unique."
"Added viticultural control provided another benefit used to create a flavor spectrum based upon several appellations: mouthfeel from Napa and Sonoma, acidity and aromatics from Mendocino, power from Amador, and purity from El Dorado. The combination of these blocks ultimately results in an artful collage both in and outside of the bottle." 15.7% ABV.
