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.

Winemaker 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.

The Zinfandel-dominated 2016 Red Blend Scout's Honor is a value-priced release from this team that has overflowing notes of sweet plum and blackberry fruits, spice and incense. It's plump, flamboyant, and sweetly fruited, and ideal for drinking over the coming 3-4 years. The blend is 70% Zinfandel, 14% Charbono, 9% Petite Sirah, and the rest Syrah, aged in 50% new American oak.
