An untraditional blend of varietals, creating a red wine of depth and power.
Bootleg Red Blend is opulent, plush, and luscious with red and black fruit, soft tannins and velvety texture. In crafting this 2012 Bootleg Red Blend, the winemaker’s intent was to make a big, luscious red blend with loads of dark fruit and power.
Our Merlot is from Stagecoach Vineyard and serves as the base due to its upfront red fruit and soft tannins that make this wine approachable early on. Combined, the other varietals add structure, depth and richness that bring this blend together.
Blend: 36% Merlot, 28% Petite Syrah, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah, 4% Zinfandel
