Aromas of stone fruits, crushed blue herbs, violets, cherry, anise, and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super-ripe blackberry, pepper spice, and an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Petite Sirah. A seamless balance and mouth coating deliciousness are found throughout the palate, with an extra long finish with a touch of barrel tannin at the end.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Scout's Honor is blended of 70% Zinfandel, 14% Charbono, 9% Petite Sirah and 7% Syrah. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers up baked raspberries, fruitcake, dusty soil and Chinese five spice scents with touches of tobacco and potpourri. Full-bodied with a velvety texture and loads of spice-laced berry preserves flavors, it finishes long and opulent.

Wine EnthusiastWinemaker Kirk Venge combines 70% Zinfandel with 14% Charbono, 9% Petite Sirah and 7% Syrah to great effect, offering a jammy expression of blackberry, brown sugar and vanilla. Soft integrated oak supports the rounded rich fruit and gives it an impressive framework of structure and likability.
