Entering dark and sultry at first sniff with aromas of dark earth, blackberry, black licorice, mocha, and vanilla.
The 2019 Ingenuity becomes brighter and lighter as it hits the palate.
Our beloved proprietary blend combines the robustness of Petite Sirah with the playfulness of Grenache and the grounding nature of Mourvèdre for a wine that has all the gears to keep you entertained and enthralled. The Petite offers black fruits, roasted herbs, rare red meat, gobs of structure; Grenache provides a boost of fresh red fruit and minerality; and Mourvèdre seals together/tames with its earthy roundness. A complex union of flavors encircles the palate - roasted coffee beans, graphite, vanilla, bramble berry fruit, loads of milk chocolate, cigar box aromas - and black licorice and coffee linger on the finish.
