Lots of darker plum and blackberry fruits as well as peppery herbs, spring flowers, and spicy notes emerge from the 2019 Sagacious, another ripe, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced red that has tons of minerality and savory earth-like nuances on the palate. As with all of these, it has incredible character and, I have no doubt, a decade of longevity. The blend is 39% Mourvèdre, 31% Grenache, and 30% Syrah, brought up in 36% new French oak.
The 2019 Sagacious is a blend of 39% Mourvèdre, 31% Grenache and 30% Syrah, with some whole cluster inclusion. It spent 19 months' maturation in 36% new French oak. Medium ruby-purple, it has red cherry and blueberry fruit with a range of accents from dark spices and earth to bright bitters, lilac and citrus. The palate is silky and super fresh, with spices and mineral character on the long finish. It's lovely now, but it will develop more savory layers with time in bottle.
