2016 Insider

2016 Insider


  • Double Gold - San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
  • 93 pts - Wine Enthusiast


  • 57% Carignane
  • 29% Petite Sirah
  • 14% Zinfandel

Handcrafted for the release in our 2019 Insider Club, our 2016 Insider was our first Carignane-dominated blend. The structure and fruit from these three varietals created an incredibly well-balanced wine that is showing exceptionally well with a little more age on it. The beautiful deep ruby color and enticing nose of dark fruit, candied bacon, toasted oak and note of violet excite your senses. On the palate you’ll find flavors of blackberry, pomegranate and a hint of orange peel. Lush and silky, the lingering finish leaves you with a hint of clove and dark fruit. We know you’ll love revisiting this Double Gold winner!
