Robert Parker 90
"The 2015 Red Blend is made up of 53 Merlot, 21 Petite Sirah, 20 Syrah, 4 Cabernet Sauvignon, 1 Cabernet Franc and 1 Petit Verdot, aged 20 months in 28 new French oak and 2 new American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, baked plums, warm blackberries and Black Forest cake springs from the glass with touches of Chinese five spice, dusty soil and garrigue with a touch of black tea. Full, rich and with an approachable chewy texture, it has great freshness and a long earthy finish."

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.
