A vibrant garnet / purple color, this wine continues to allow me to create a wine from all the vineyards that we work with and to make some magic a la Smoke & Mirrors. Black cherry, raspberry and wild strawberry with a touch of anise and chocolate covered maraschino cherries. The palate is full and sweet with flavors that echo the aromas.
The fruit in Smoke & Mirrors comes from all the vineyards I work with so it is a touch different each year.
The blend: 60% Zinfandel, 28% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah and 6% Grenache.
The goal is to produce wine that comes across like a fantastic Côtes du Rhône. I want complexity and intensity like all my other wines, but be more approachable.
As a lover of all things Rhône, I decided to make a Southern Côte du Rhône-style wine, but to include Zinfandel in the blend. I wanted it to be a great introduction to my Rhône-centric winemaking style. I also wanted it to be delicious and yes, MAGICAL! The name Smoke & Mirrors comes from my love of anything that is magic - Cirque du Soleil, The Harlem Globetrotters, etc.
