Aromas of fresh boysenberry, baked pastries, caramel and savory smoke lead into a well-integrated palate of fruit, herb and wood flavors that are framed by firm yet polished tannins. It's fresh with acidity and yet dense, finishing on a touch of pine needle.

Deep vivid ruby. Powerful red and blue fruit preserve, candied licorice and exotic spice aromas pick up a smoky nuance with air. Broad, fleshy and seamless in texture, offering palate-coating black raspberry, cherry cola, fruitcake and mocha flavors sharpened by a zesty, peppery nuance. Clings with authority on the long, smoky finish, which leaves behind a sweet violet pastille note. For fans of bold, full-throated but not overbearing red wine, there's serious value here. 20% whole clusters. Drinking Window: 2021-2027.

Bold and zesty, with lively black raspberry, bitter chocolate and licorice flavors that build muscle toward broad-shouldered tannins. Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah and Viognier. Drink now through 2028. 2,477 cases made.

Another outstanding wine as well as a smoking value, the 2017 High On The Hog (40% Syrah, 30% Grenache, 22% Mourvèdre, 6% Petite Sirah, and the rest Viognier) offers earthy dark fruits, bouquet garni, pepper, and violets notes in a medium to full-bodied, pleasure-bent package. It's California's answer to a top-notch Côtes du Rhône .
