Law Estate Wines Sagacious 2014
|Region||California, Central Coast, Paso Robles|

Sagacious continues to have the ability to provide a sexy, yet infinitely nuanced wine through the selection of our best Mourvèdre, Syrah and Grenache. It shows flavors of pomegranate and bright fig, as well as zesty citrus. Dozens of secondary notes, such as leather and tobacco peek through, waiting to unfold with time. With 20 months in French Oak, it has an impressive tannin structure that is chalky and chewy. This power trio will leave a very silky impression on the palate, which will continue to evolve as the wine ages gracefully for another 10-15 years.
A Mourvèdre dominated blend that includes Syrah (38%) and Grenache (20%), the 2014 Sagacious was fermented in concrete tanks and spent two years in French oak. It's another terrific red from this estate that delivers lots of black fruits, crushed violets and spice/incense aromas and flavors, full-bodied richness, no hard edges and a great finish. Drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years or more.
Composed of 42% Mourvèdre, 38% Syrah and 20% Grenache, the 2014 Sagacious sports a deep garnet-purple color and is scented of blackberry preserves, crème de cassis, tapenade and black licorice with underlying hints of forest floor, black soil, chargrill and sautéed herbs. Full-bodied, concentrated and laden with earth-laced black fruit flavors, it has a rock-solid structure of chewy tannins and a lively line, finishing with anise and herbal notes.
(25% new French oak) Glass-staining ruby. Heady, mineral- and spice-tinged black and blue fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of cola, candied licorice, violet candy and mocha. Plush and deeply concentrated, offering sweet blueberry, cherry-vanilla and fruitcake flavors, along with an exotic Indian spice quality. Shows impressive intensity and dark fruit thrust on the finish, which is framed by broad, velvety tannins that fade steadily into the densely packed fruit.
