Winemaker Bruce Regalia Notes
Last year’s Rogues was a blend of 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah. In part because we had a very large crop of Mourvedre in 2013 and a smaller one of Grenache, we changed the blend in 2013 to 41% Grenache, 41% Mourvedre and 8% Syrah. Because of the increased amount of Mourvedre, this year’s blend will be more approachable early on but will still show the slow evolution in the glass characteristic of the Grenache fruit along with great depth and structure from Syrah. This vintage may be the most balanced of the Rogues we have produced in the four years we have made it. It is translucent with a deep crimson-garnet in color. The nose is cherry vanilla, with a palate of berry flavors: wild cherry, cranberry, blackberry with a ...more... hint of smoked bacon wrapped around tart cherries on the finish. Stock up on this one…it just might become your everyday wine with all sorts of food or by itself.
