Mad Crush 2016
Syrah 58%, Malbec 18%, Grenache 10%, Mourvedre 9%, Petite Sirah 4%, Viognier 1%
Not skipping a beat, the 2016 Reckoning picks up right where 2015 left off with boisterous and brooding aromas of sweet black currants, dusty black cherries, and bacon fat. A juicy concentration of raspberry and pie filling are contrasted by tobacco leaf, black tea and cracked black pepper background that add a herbal freshness to the aromatics. While rich and smoky on the nose, this Syrah blend lives up to its reputation with its hallmark savory tones and rich viscosity on the palate. Cranberry juice, cassis, and nutmeg dominate a sweet entry as a velvety tannin broadens into the mid-palate, yielding to more earthy flavors of savory mushroom and charred cedar. A balanced and unassertive acidity mingles among the complex flavors and carries well into the finish of black olives and chalky limestone. Welcome back, our old friend.
Mad Crush 2016
Grenache 36%, Tempranillo 32%, Mourvedre 32%
With its beloved style and grace, the 2016 Mad Crush leaps from the glass with a mix of fresh fruits and dry, earthy tones. A wine of virility yet unashamed of it’s elegant and softer edges. White pepper highlights fruit notes like fresh red cherries, cranberries, and candied watermelon, but a savory undertone bolsters tones of cola, lightly toasted cedar, and anise. A silky smooth entry with concentrated raspberry notes yield to coarse, drying tannins on the mid-palate that create layers of boysenberry pie, dark chocolate, and more lingering currants. Mouthwatering acidity balances the drying tannins and bolsters candied flavors of strawberries that carry into a long and dry finish. Unassuming and persistent, a gentle breeze in your garden of life.
