Scaggs Vineyard Montage Mount Veeder 2009

Scaggs Vineyard Montage Mount Veeder 750ml 2009   
Sku: 1777199*

A blend of classic southern Rhone varietals: mourvedre, grenache , syrah and counoise. They're built around a mid-palate structure that relies on the firmness of mourvedre with the other varietals layering above and below it. Grenache, with its brightness and softness lifts the wine and the palate; mourvedre picks up where grenache leaves off and brings backbone and continuity to the whole; syrah adds spiciness and broadness in counterbalance to the less tannic, lower alcohol counoise. Before bottling the wine is aged in well-seasoned French oak barrels for 11 months.

Tasting notes
The 2009 vintage exhibits its familiar montage of plum, lavender, and sage aromatics. The sweet boysenberry fruit on the palate is balanced by black pepper and a chewy tannic structure. The wine combines lush texture with impressive focus and length. Upon airing, blackberry and pomegranate notes hint of more layers to be revealed over time
