Our most Southern Rhône influenced Impostor to date. The 2013 has a sense of finesse that carries this concentrated and layered wine across the palate creating a cascade of experiences that can only be attributed to the combination of varietals, vineyards and growing locations.
Neutral French oak 350L to 600L barrels and Concrete Foudre
Very Rhône-centric, combines Rhône and Zinfandel, leaning more towards Zinfandel. This wine is made from specific single vineyard sites that produce grapes that fit the consistent profile that Jeff strives for with the Impostor vintage after vintage.
90 Pts Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate
"The 2013 The Impostor checks in as a blend of 45% Zinfandel, 26% Syrah, 9% Petite Sirah and the rest Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Alicante and other varieties. It's a juicy, ripe berry-scented, spicy and brambly red that has medium to full-bodied richness, ripe tannin, tons of character and a great finish. Drink this hedonistic, pleasure-bent beauty over the coming 4-6 years."
91 Pts Wine Spectator "Eclectic, eccentric and fun to drink, with aromas of huckleberry and spiced cinnamon opening to zesty, briary flavors of blueberry, smoky grilled anise and cracked pepper. Zinfandel, Syrah, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Carignane, Mourvèdre, Alicante Bouschet, Black Muscat and Viognier. Drink now through 2021."- T. F. 1,913 cases made.
