The Southern Rhône inspired 2018 Sagacious (close to equal parts Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre) offers lots of red and blue fruits as well as savory herbs, spice, and dried flower-like aromas and flavors. It’s seamless, full-bodied, and has remarkable purity of fruit. As with all the releases here, it’s a ripe, powerful wine loaded with character.

95pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Sagacious is a blend of 35% Grenache, 34% Syrah and 31% Mourvèdre, aged 19 months in 42% new oak. The nose offers top notes of cedar and graphite over cassis, blueberries and licorice. The full-bodied palate has explosive, perfumed, juicy fruits with a grainy texture and long, layered finish. It's lovely right now but should age well in bottle.

 

Winemaker Notes

Blend: 35% Grenache, 34% Syrah, 31% Mourvèdre

Sweet earth spice and dried herbs billow under a foggy ocean air-like mist. Its saline brilliance moves to dark fruit and picks up the essence of a coastal, forest trail lined in raspberry and blackberry bushes. This wine comes alive and engulfs the palate with a complex array of spice and dried herbs, leading to a freshness that eventually finishes opulent and slightly puckering. Our beloved GSM, will not only stop you in your tracks based on its vibrant color, but also the journey it takes you on, upon first sip.
