"A tight and fresh red with blackberry, blueberry and spice. Some walnut, too. Full body, soft and easy tannins and a flavorful finish. Nicely done. Drink or hold."
Wine Advocate 90
"Composed of 46 Syrah, 39 Merlot, 13 Petite Sirah, 1 Petit Verdot and 1 Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2014 Red Blend features a medium to deep garnet-purple color and lovely kirsch, crushed black berries and red currants nose with touches of black pepper, baking spices and garrigue. Medium to full-bodied, the palate gives lovely fresh, juicy red and black fruits with peppery undertones and nice rounded tannins, finishing on a spicy note. 6,010 cases produced."

Our passion is in the art of blending. We are untraditional in form and flavor, crafting an unexpected varietal combination. Bootleg produces big, luscious red blends with loads of dark fruit and power. We've used Merlot from Napa's Stagecoach Vineyard as the base for its upfront fruit flavors and soft tannins, making the wine approachable early on. The combination of other varietals offer structure, depth and a powerful richness that round out this bold red blend.
