The Bootleg Prequel Red Blend displays a deep, opaque purple color and exudes aromas of lavender, blueberry, bacon and wood-smoke. Its texture is round, full bodied, opening to flavors of forest fruits, black pepper and toasted oak. A substantial, supple wine that's superb on its own, but will elevate sautéed mushrooms and lamb sausages to next level status.
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.
