The 2015 Scoutís Honor comes from another spectacular vintage that honors their late
and beloved Labrador Retriever, Scout. This wine is based on a tradition of producing a
full bodied, delicious and enjoyable red wine. We 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.
While the 2015 vintage was another perfect growing season, significant yield
reductions were seen in early ripening varieties.
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.
