2013 Audacious

39% Grenache, 36% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon
(95pts-WineAdvocate)
This showcase wine, amongst both collectors and consumers, is gone as fast as we release it and continues to be a standout in every vintage. The nose depicts dark chocolate and eucalyptus that hover over a dense layer of cassis and freshly picked black currants. Dark primary fruits of blackberry and blueberry mingle with a bright acidic freshness and fine tannins across the palate. Aged for 22 months on its lees in 60% new French oak, Audacious has a keen integration of structure and begs to be opened now or over the next 15-20 years in its primed position of a continual evolution in bottle.

Tasting Notes
The 2013 Audacious is a total head turner that's made from 39% Grenache, 36% Syrah and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and is all from the limestone soils of the Law Family Vineyard located high up off of Peachy Canyon Road. Fermented in concrete tanks and aged 20 months in 228- and 500-liter French oak barrels, this beauty is locked and loaded with notions of kirsch liqueur, blackberries, savory herbs and dried earth. Rich, full-bodied, concentrated and sexy, with building tannin, don't miss this beauty!
