Site Wines Red Blend 2012
Wine AdvocateThe first red wine from Site Wines, the 2012 Red Wine comes from Ballard Canyon and is 75% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 5% Viognier that saw a touch of stem inclusion and 18 months in 75% new French oak. It's inky purple color is followed by gorgeous notes of blackberries, licorice, vanilla bean and smoked meats. Full-bodied, pure, elegant and layered, it's a stunning Syrah that has fruit, texture, structure and elegance. Give it a year and drink bottles through 2024. Bravo to winemaker Jeremy Weintraub for a terrific wine.
