Mount Peak Gravity Red Blend 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Mt. Veeder|
Mainly Petite Sirah blended with Sangiovese, the 2015 Proprietary Red Blend Gravity is deep garnet-purple colored with profound crushed black and red currants notes over chocolate box, beef drippings and scorched earth with touches of dried herbs and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, it's very firm and chewy with lovely lift and a long, earthy finish. 6,750 cases produced.
Plenty of charm to this red, with espresso, cinnamon, black walnut and cigar box aromatics, and thick, chewy tannins that give way to wild blackberry and cassis flavors. All the elements find some balance and harmony on the spicy finish. Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel, Syrah, Grenache and Barbera. Drink now through 2028. 13,500 cases made.
It's difficult to imagine a darker inkier color than this full-bodied wine has. The aromas and flavors are not as deep and concentrated as the color suggests. Mild blackberry and blueberry flavors dominate and the texture is moderately tannic.
