46% Petite Sirah, 28% Mourvèdre, 26% Carignan
Beauty and Beast comes to mind when enjoying this wine. Loads of beautiful juicy ripe fruits are balanced by wonderful structure and complexity. Ethereal aromatics conjure notes of black fruits, cassis, rich humus, and cedar. Logan berry, smoked meats, and cocoa come together to create a generous and intense beast with just the right amount of restraint to keep it civilized. A wine not for the tentative or faint of heart, but those seeking the thrill of adventure. Drink 2022-2035
"The 2019 Backlit is a blend of 46% Petite Sirah, 28% Mourvèdre and 26% Carignan. Medium ruby-purple, it opens with tarry touches that give way to spicy blackberry fruit and notes of eucalyptus, earth, charcuterie and coffee beans, and the full-bodied palate has rounded tannins and a long, fragrant finish. It's a touch more closed than the 2018 vintage at this stage, so put it away in the cellar for a while." 95 pts - Wine Advocate
