    Winemaker's Notes:

    This elegant Rhone blend (our 10th vintage) displays Old World Style with New World fruit. Hint of Grenaches earthy rusticity and Shirazs noble spice with hints of nutmeg and salty black olive on the finish. Balanced with soft integrated tannins.

    Serve with roasts, duckling and full flavored Mediterranean dishes as well as lamb or grilled meat and vegetables.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2006 Renegade is a blend of 45% Shiraz, 44% Grenache, 11% Mourvedre that is raised in used oak for 12 months. It has a crisp mulberry and tea leaf bouquet that is well defined. The palate is ripe on the entry with vibrant acidity and an attractive weightlessness. Notes of blackberry, briary and bay leaf furnish the reserved, but fresh, classy finish.

    I LOVE this wine! I hadn't thought of a Grenache/Shiraz and must admit I tend to stick with Cabs and Zins. This is really very good - smooth, peppery, well balanced. I want more of it!

    Just ordered and love it. Went to order more but now its sold out! Drinking very nicely right now. Will make me look at other Ken Forrester wines. Pepper from the Shiraz, fruit from the Grenache

    Bold,heavy and earthy. Quite unusual I think.Probably best with a heavy meaty meal. Would buy again.
