Renegade comes from Ancient Peaks' estate Margarita Vineyard on the historic Santa Margarita Ranch. From missionaries to gunslingers, rough riders to outlaws, a colorful cast of characters has traversed the ranch’s rugged terrain since the 18th century. In that spirit, Ancient Peaks has made an intensely flavored blend that pushes the envelope and resists conformity, adding an adventurous twist to the family of wines. Defiantly bold and daringly elegant—this is Renegade.
Earthy aromas of dewy thyme, oregano, juniper and pine needle are sprinkled with cracked pepper and laid across dark berry on the nose. A eucalyptus spice hits the palate alongside the pepper, with dark fruit lingering long.
