Ancient Peaks Renegade 2016
The 2016 Renegade presents heady aromas of plum, cherry, violets, vanilla bean and savory leather with a suggestion of baking spice. Juicy flavors of red and black fruits comingle seamlessly across a rich, expansive palate, revealing hints of wildberry jam, sage and cedar. Lively yet integrated acidity lends elegance to this otherwise powerful wine, carrying notes of black pepper into a long, balanced finish. Food Pairings: The full-bodied yet polished character of the 2016 Renegade is an excellent match for rack of lamb, grilled pork chops, bacon-wrapped filet, and black pepper-crusted roast beef.
