Neyers Sage Canyon Red 2019
Winemaker Tadeo Borchardt creates a blend that varies from year to year, and in 2019 the finished wine was 55% Carignan, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache, and 5% Syrah. The current bottling has an exotic, lavender-like aroma, with suggestions of wild cherries, ginger, allspice, and freshly ground black pepper. The favors are generous and rich, matched by an attractive suppleness that adds to their enjoyment.
"Offers ripe wild blackberry and huckleberry notes that mingle with Kalamata olive and fresh sage flavors. A terrific mix of fruity and savory elements, with cigar box and malty Assam black tea lingering on the finish. Delivers polished tannins. Carignane, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah.
