2013 Scaggs Vineyard Mt. Veeder Montage
The unmistakeable earthiness of mourvedre strikes a harmonious balance with the brightness in this grenache-driven blend. Here are winemaker Ken Bernards' tasting notes:
An elegant blend of dried herbs, sage, fresh leather, baking spice, plum and berry flavors are woven into a seamless montage. Additional layers unfold with time, displaying hints of red licorice, anise, tea, and pomegranate. Youthful tannins and its lively palate are a precursor to the greater depth that will come with age. Drink now or enjoy its evolution over the next decade.
