Description

Revelation is made from the top barrel selections of Syrah and Grenache in our effort to create the absolute best blend from Rodney's Vineyard.

Our Grenache is aged in 500L puncheon barrels which allows for less oxygen to oxidize the wine, keeping it fresh and bright while slowing the aging process. Syrah contributes darker fruit flavors and structure while Grenache brightens the blend and adds red fruit characteristics.

Structure and acidity makes this a wine you can age. Pairing Revelation with grilled meats is a given but enjoying it with slow cooked roasts of pork or lamb is equally delicious.

Wine Critic Reviews
"...Deep purple/ruby-colored, with notes of black raspberries, spiced plums, smoked game, crushed flowers, and peppery herbs, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, plenty of upfront fruit, no hard edges, and terrific purity. It's certainly the finest vintage of this cuvée I've tasted." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "Dark black-currant and gingerbread spice aromas show on the nose of this single-vineyard blend of 56% Grenache and 44% Syrah. It’s rich and unctuous on the palate, with cassis and violet flavors. It is attention-grabbing yet also balanced by acidity and a subtle structure." ~ Wine Enthusiast "The 2016 Revelation Rodney's Vineyard is a barrel selection, 56% Grenache done in foudres and 44% Syrah aged in barrique, a combination that works very well. Pliant and inviting, the Revelation is super-expressive. Grenache red cherry, kirsch and floral notes are especially evident today." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
