Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2017 vintage of this wine is perhaps our finest effort to date. This delicious red blend honors our late and beloved Labrador Retriever, Scout. This wine is based on a tradition of producing a full bodied and delicious red wine. We start with a base of old-vine Zinfandel and build upon that with dry-farmed Petite Sirah, old-vine Charbono, and finish with moun-tain vineyard Syrah. The result is an unpretentious red wine that is ready to enjoy upon re-lease. This vintage has a gorgeous, concentrated assemblage of sweet honeysuckle, crushed blue herbs, aromas of violets, anise, and a touch of vanillin. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super ripe black fruits and currants, 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 that is quite pleasing to the senses.

2017 Scout’s Honor is certainly a generous mouthful of red wine that we recommend be opened and enjoyed immediately upon release. Cellared correctly it will age for 5 to 8 years.

63% Zinfandel, 16% Charbono, 12% Petite Sirah and 9% Syrah


Ratings & Reviews


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:

"The 2017 Scout's Honor is blended of 63% Zinfandel, 16% Charbono, 12% Petite Sirah and 9% Syrah. Medium garnet-purple in color, the nose gives lifted notes of baked red and black cherries, dried mulberries and raspberry preserves with touches of sautéed herbs and mossy tree bark. The palate is full and intense with an herbal streak lifting the red and black fruit preserves, finishing chewy and a little rustic." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (31st Oct 2019)
