The Ancient Peaks Renegade Red 2013 shows a luxurious balance of berry and savory flavors. The nose shows aromas of boysenberry, blueberry, violets, tobacco, and roast coffee. A suggestion of smokiness on the palate may remind you of making coffee and breakfast around the campfire. Flavors of blackberry, vanilla cream, cola, and spice mingle on the palate. The texture of the wine is as smooth and robust as the flavors would suggest, with plump tannins and a bold finish.
This red wine would pair nicely with herb-grilled lamb chops or beef medallions.
