Banshee Mordecai 2010
A worthy follow up to the success of our inaugural blend. This vintage, a Napa Cabernet parcel stepped up to take the lead role but it is fascinating to see how the other varieties express themselves. The Syrah adds a little spiciness, the Grenache some bright red fruit, and the Cabernet Franc an intriguing nose. Each piece adds something distinct and essential to the wine. We like to think of this as a marriage between Bordeaux and Rhone, consummated in California. While still rich and full-bodied, the cool 2010 vintage bestowed a certain class and elegance to the wine.
