Once again Zach's ladder is entirely sourced from Red Mountain fruit, including Klipsun and Ciel du Cheval. It's half Syrah and half Cabernet Sauvignon, with a splash of Petit Verdot. Fruity and forward in this cooler vintage, it shows lush red berry flavors with a kiss of cocoa. Tangy and satisfying.
