Notes from the Winemaker:
This wine is a deep, opaque purple and exudes aromas of lavender, blueberry and bacon smoke. Its texture is round, full bodied and incredibly creamy. It exhibits flavors of forest fruits, black pepper and toasted oak. This substantial, yet supple wine is superb on its own, but could elevate sautéed mushrooms and lamb sausages to next level status.

Appellation: Sonoma County

Blend: 85% Syrah and 15% Petite Sirah

Fermentation/Aging: Fermented in closed top stainless steel tanks. Aged 21 months in 37% new French oak and 1% new American oak.

Ratings & Reviews



93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"One of the newer estates under the Jackson Family umbrella, Bootleg is managed by Kristy Melton, who’s turned out a brilliant Syrah blend in 2015. Made from 85% Syrah and 15% Petite Sirah, its deep purple color is followed by a peppery, meaty, dark fruited beauty that has full-bodied richness, complex notes of olives and spice, sweet tannin, and a great finish. It’s a pleasure-bent 2015 that should keep for a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (06/05/2018)

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Prequel Red Blend is made of 85% Syrah and 15% Petite Sirah aged 21 months in 37% new French oak and 1% new American oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it delivers vibrant black cherries, black raspberries and wild blueberries with touches of licorice, grilled meats, Provence herbs and Sichuan pepper. Medium to full-bodied, it gives vibrant, expressive black fruit and spicy layers with a soft, rounded texture and refreshingly savory finish. 1,493 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (28th Feb 2019)
