2021 Sofa King Bueno
50% Syrah, 30% Petite Sirah, 11% Grenache, 5% Tempranillo, 4% Mourvèdre
Tip your hat to Rhone Royalty! We've included all the right players in this elegant and savory blend that weaves together high-toned fruit notes of cranberry, blue fruits and ripe cherry with a hint of lavender and violet. Dusty, rich tannins with a structured mouthfeel. Layers of cinnamon, turned earth and baking spice make this juice, oh so nice!
90pts Wine & Spirits (2020 Vintage): Considering this is mostly a syrah–petite sirah blend (with some grenache and mourvedre), it’s surprisingly lifted, its flavors of cherries and red plums carrying plenty of spicy oak. Serve with a light chill for chicken sausages. - Patrick Comiskey
90pts Wine Enthusiast (2020 Vintage): "There's a lot of woodspice on the nose of this playfully named blend of 57% Syrah, 24% Petite Sirah, 12% Grenache and 7% Mourvèdre, as well as aromas of elderberry juice and anise. The palate shows juicy and tart berry flavors, with cedar and just enough tannins." - MK, Dec 2022
