2015 marks another great vintage here at our Calistoga estate, especially for varietals like Zinfandel, Charbono, Syrah, and Pe te Sirah. The growing season started early a er an unseasonably mild winter, leading into a cool bud-break resultantly low berry-set. These small bunches outperformed in the cellar: the high skin-to-juice ra o of the must has given us the densest colored wines in decades, and inky color happens to be a hall- mark of our Scout’s Honor proprietary red wine.

We start with a base of old-vine Zinfandel from our Signal Fire Vineyard in Calistoga (where some of those vines have been producing for over 100 years!) and build upon that with dry-farmed Pe te Sirah, old-vine Charbono, and nish with mountain-vineyard Syrah from the Stagecoach Vineyard. The result is an unpreten ous red wine that will sa sfy me and me again. Not just a fan-favorite, this wine honors our late winery dog, Scout.

This vintage has a gorgeous, concentrated assemblage of aromas of stone fruits, crushed blue herbs, violets, cherry, anise, and a touch of honeysuckle. On the palate is pure richness from the old-vine Zinfandel with loads of super-ripe blackberry, pepper spice, and an enveloping masculinity of char and tannins from the Syrah, Charbono and Pe te Sirah. A seamless balance and mouth coa ng deliciousness are found throughout the palate, with an extra long nish with a touch of barrel tannin at the end.

2015 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.
