Mainly Petite Sirah blended with Sangiovese, the 2015 Proprietary Red Blend Gravity is deep garnet-purple colored with profound crushed black and red currants notes over chocolate box, beef drippings and scorched earth with touches of dried herbs and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, it's very firm and chewy with lovely lift and a long, earthy finish.
The Gravity Red Blend is named for a remote, hard-to-reach block on the Monte Rosso Vineyard. Its location on the edge of a canyon and its steepness produces grapes with exceptional intensity. Five varieties—Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache—create a vivid expression of the power and depth of the vineyard.
This dark, dense wine is layered with black cherry, plum and blackberry tones and hints of cocoa powder and coffee. The full-body and luscious mouthfeel are framed by assertive tannins and a long, concentrated finish with truffle, caramel and toasty oak.
Blend: 57% Petite Sirah, 15% Sangiovese, 15% Zinfandel, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Grenache
