Wine Enthusiast Review
Earthy aromas of dewy thyme, oregano, juniper and pine needle are sprinkled with cracked pepper and laid across dark berry on the nose of this blend of 38% Syrah, 36% Petit Verdot and 26% Malbec. A eucalyptus spice hits the palate alongside the pepper, with dark fruit lingering long.
The Renegade offers intense aromas of blueberry and boysenberry with notes of violet, pencil shavings and toasted oak. A smooth, luscious texture delivers velvety flavors of black cherry, bramble berry and cola with suggestions of cocoa, tobacco and savory spice. Fine acidity and chewy tannins add tension to a rich, broad finish.
