From spices to cassis and dark cherry notes, the complexity of the blend transcends into subtle notes of leather and dark chocolate. The mouth feel is rich with luscious and elegant tannins. A very bold and powerful wine that is still approachable and balanced.
Made with Petite Syrah (30%) and Syrah (30%) from south of Placerville, in the FairPlay AVA where the high mountainside and deep granite soils develop grapes for intense wines. The backbone of this Omen Red Blend is an amazing Cabernet Sauignon (40%), straight from the outstanding Rorick Heritage Vineyard property (literally a canyon inside the mountains) in Murphys, California. The diverse soil there is rich with iron, decomposing granite and limestone (a very unique combo in California!), packing some really deep concentration and depth into its grapes.
"This deep, dark and concentrated wine made by Alexandre Remy is big in every way—from the almost-black color to amped up aromas of dark chocolate and blackberry jam. Ripe blueberry and blackberry flavors coat the palate while a thick layer of soft-edged tannins shapes the texture. It's not at all shy, and is a blast to drink with something grilled over open flames." – Wine Enthusiast, 92pts
