Field Day 2018
Syrah 55%, Petite Sirah 15%, Tempranillo 10%, Grenache 10%, Zinfandel 10%Born from the sultry and smoky 470 clone of Syrah from the ONX Estate, the 2017 Reckoning boasts power and longevity; A trait that is truly unique in a vintage rife with “drink-young” wines. A truly unique vintage for Syrah, 2017 expressed the variety with its standard mainstay of densely layered and dark profile, but with a spicy and floral edge. An unexpected, but welcomed derivation from the norm. Petite Sirah offers depth and platform for the Syrah, while Grenache, Tempranillo, and Zinfandel assist with bright fruit expression on the nose and length on the palate. Rich yet botanical, the aromatics diffuse from the glass with sweet notes of blackberry compote, anise, and fig jam framed by notes of cedar wood, tobacco, and white pepper. A savory undertone reminiscent of a fat-rich filet mignon adds to the anticipation of the palate. The entry is unexpectedly sharp with acidity and bright with flavors of pomegranate and raspberries. As flavors of cracked black pepper, dusty earth, and a medley of black fruits take over, a smooth and moderate amount of tannin and acidity intermingle in perfect harmony making for a long persistence of flavors. The wine finishes densely layered with cocoa powder and a fresh minerality. Drink 2020-2032.
Field Day 2018
Sauvignon Blanc 64%, Viognier 20%, Grenache Blanc 16%
As refreshing as a big breath of ocean air, the 2018 Field Day features a nose of high tone fresh fruits that instantly can snap anyone into vacation mode. Pineapple, passionfruit, and green apple tones are overlaid by a beautiful bouquet of white freesia, oleander, and honeysuckle that create layers of both crisp and ripe aromas. The palate is greeted with an entry of healthy acidity that bolsters citrus flavors of lime pith, tangelos, and sweet limoncello. The moderate to high acidity is balanced out in the mid-palate by notes of meringue, peach, and lychee followed by a last burst of acidity on the finish that provides an exclamation point to the taste.
