Description
A beautiful garnet color leads into a nose of dark fruit, blueberry, chocolate and baking spices in the background.  On the palate, this fascinating red blend exhibits approachable tannins. Flavors of blueberry and blackberry compote, toasty oak and a long luscious finish combine for a wine to enjoy on its own or to stand up to bold flavors such as BBQ ribs or grilled sausages.

About Bootleg

Bootleg wines pay tribute to the devotion and daring that inspired the winegrowing rogues, who smuggled vine cuttings from renowned French vineyards and replanted them in California to elevate American wine to world-class status. Though the recipe may change year to year, Bootleg’s exuberant, bold, and complex blends challenge convention while remaining anchored in celebrated vineyards throughout Napa and Sonoma.
