"...a powerful, heady wine. Black cherry, spice, menthol, licorice, chocolate and lavender all open in the glass. This deep, fleshy red packs plenty of punch. I find this to be a bit heavy for a Grenache-based wine." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
"...It shows the purity of the vintage and has a clean, elegant, medium-bodied style as well as ample kirsch and blackberry fruit, notes of peppery herbs and flower, a good spine of acidity, and outstanding length." ~ Jeb Dunnuck
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.
