2018 Mt. Peak Winery 'Gravity' Red Blend California
Winemaker Notes - The Gravity Red Blend is named for a remote, hard-to-reach block on the Monte Rosso Vineyard. Its location on the edge of a canyon and its steepness produces grapes with exceptional intensity. Five varieties—Petite Sirah, Sangiovese, Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Grenache—create a vivid expression of the power and depth of the vineyard.
This dark, dense wine is layered with black cherry, plum and blackberry tones and hints of cocoa powder and coffee. The full-body and luscious mouthfeel are framed by assertive tannins and a long, concentrated finish with truffle, caramel and toasty oak.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2018 Proprietary Red Blend Gravity has a deep garnet-purple color and leaps from the glass with notes of blackberry pie, wild blueberries and juicy plums, giving way to suggestions of cracked black pepper, Indian spices and licorice with a touch of garrigue. Full-bodied, the palate is packed with juicy black fruits and loads of pepper and spice accents, framed by ripe, round tannins, finishing long and savory. 250 cases were made."
Wine Enthusiast - "Deep, dark and delicious, this potent and full-bodied wine is packed with black cherry, dark chocolate and black fig flavors. It's all supported by thick, velvety tannins."
