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 make 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
"Another outstanding blend...the 2020 Rodney's Vineyard Revelation is 62% Syrah and 38% Grenache that was destemmed and spent 21 months in 47% larger oak barrels. It’s deep plum hue is followed by a medium to full-bodied red with terrific fruit purity, lots of iron, pepper, leather, and gamey nuances, ripe tannins, and a core of smoky red and black fruits. It’s going to evolve for 7-8 years, but I love it today." ~ Jeb Dunnuck "Aromas of smoked blackberry, peppery teriyaki, inky iodine and a touch of violet converge on the nose of this blend...The palate joins baked berry flavors with ample nutmeg, mace and clove spice, making for a powerful sip." ~ Wine Enthusiast "…a bold, juicy wine that captures the natural radiance of the year in its super-ripe dark profile. Leather, spice, menthol, incense and cedar add a good bit of nuance, but this a wine built on forward fruit and exuberance." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous
