In making 19 Crimes "The Uprising" we selected particular wine parcels for their spice and concentration of flavor providing the wine with great intensity and lusciousness on the palate. The vintage 2016 is Shiraz dominant lending bright raspberry fruit and plush tannin structure with Cabernet Sauvignon to provide blackberry fruits, palate weight and structure and then Grenache to provide spice and fruit sweetness on the palate. The nose has intense lifted mocha, caramel and baking spice notes. On the palate the wine is full and mouth coating with brown sugar, jammy blackberry and chocolate notes.
Blend: 50% Shiraz, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Grenache
