The 2014 Scoutís Honor comes from another spectacular vintage that honors the owner's late and beloved Labrador Retriever, Scout. This wine is based on a tradition of producing a full bodied, delicious and enjoyable red wine. They start with a base of old-vine Zinfandel and build upon that with dry-farmed Petite Sirah, old-vine Charbono, and finish with mountain vineyard Syrah. The result is an unpretentious red wine that will satisfy time and time again.
This vintage has a gorgeous, concentrated assemblage of aromas of stone fruits, crushed blue herbs, violets, cherry, anise, and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super ripe blackberry, pepper spice, and an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Petite Sirah. A seamless balance and mouth coating deliciousness are found throughout the palate, with an extra long finish
with a touch of barrel tannin at the end.
2014 Scoutís Honor is certainly a generous mouthful of red wine that is recommended to be opened and enjoyed immediately upon release. Cellared correctly it will age for 5 to 8 years.
