Brooding and potent, with concentrated blackberry and dried cherry flavors, laced with espresso and licorice notes, finishing with well-groomed tannins. Petite Sirah, Syrah and Grenache. Best from 2021 through 2029.
Pure inky garnet in the glass, the aromatics of plum compote, wild blackberries, crushed gravel, peanut brittle & Tahitian vanilla emanate. Massive on the entry, the mid-palate is diverse with flavors of dark plums, black pepper, Amarena cherries, slow-roasted Moroccan lamb & a marbled leather texture. Rich, enveloping & vivacious, the wine finishes with perpetuating energy & length—not to mention the satisfying tannins that rouse a desire for more. Sourced from all over the state, Machete is a culmination of bird - dogging some of the best Petite Sirah, Grenache & Syrah vineyards that produce rich & flavorful fruit. Blind tasted to determine quality, the lots that make the Machete cut—pun intended— are qualified to be one with the family of labels.
