Description

Year after year, Revelation proves to be one of our most popular wines. The 2015 vintage is sourced entirely from the upper mesa of Rodney's Vineyard at the Fess Parker Winery home ranch.  It's comprised of 53% syrah and 47% grenache and aged 21 months in 100% French oak, of which 70% is new. 

Its time spent in barrel adds layers of toasty oak to the nose combined with dark fruit notes of blueberry, black cherry and boysenberry and hints of cinnamon and sage spices. Black cherry and blueberry continue on the palate which are followed up by anise, baking chocolate and vanilla. Structure and acidity makes this a wine you can age. Ideal pairings for this vintage would be grilled lamb, ribeye or try with dessert and serve with a fine dark chocolate.
