Bootleg Prequel Red Blend 2015
This wine is a deep, opaque purple and exudes aromas of lavender, blueberry and bacon smoke. Its texture is round, full bodied and incredibly creamy. It exhibits flavors of forest fruits, black pepper and toasted oak. This substantial, yet supple wine is superb on its own, but could elevate sautéed mushrooms and lamb sausages to next level status.

Jeb DunnuckOne of the newer estates under the Jackson Family umbrella, Bootleg is managed by Kristy Melton, who’s turned out a brilliant Syrah blend in 2015. Made from 85% Syrah and 15% Petite Sirah, its deep purple color is followed by a peppery, meaty, dark fruited beauty that has full-bodied richness, complex notes of olives and spice, sweet tannin, and a great finish. It’s a pleasure-bent 2015 that should keep for a decade.
