As with the most popular of our prior Speedster vintages, our 2016 continues to be a sumptuous blend based upon the powerful yet elegant Petit Verdot, backed by luscious Cabernet Sauvignon and supple Merlot. Big, bold and balanced! Layer after layer, hedonistic flavors of dark berries await your palate with vanilla, cedar, chocolate, and black pepper showing undertones of grilled meats and a slightly gamey quality with a hint of black currant leaf. The tannins are deliciously gripping yet supple, round, and well balanced with an astute richness, leading into a long lingering finish.
Just 271 cases were produced in 2016. Speedster was designed to pair well with most hearty meals with and a favorite with grilled meats. This vintage is an excellent dinner wine!
