Inaugural 94 Point Rated, 4 barrel release from the infamous McGagh (a.k.a. Scarlett) vineyard

 

Kale Anderson has put Pahlmeyer back on a path to success, but it is his own label that caught my eye and will turn lots of heads in years to come.  Kale is the day-to-day winemaker for the Cabernet and Merlot production at Pahlmeyer.  As for his Kale “Heritage” this was sourced from the “First Growth” McGagh (Scarlett) vineyard in Rutherford.  Kale produces a mere 115 cases of this stunning “Heritage” a blend of 87% Grenache, 8% Mourvedre and 5% Syrah. This is a winery to jump on now, as I see “CULT” all over it!

This is the inaugural vintage of the Kale “Heritage” and the first Grenache-based blend in Kale’s  portfolio. Luxurious strawberry pie, and wild raspberry marmalade aromas lead to a rounded palette. Fresh plum, fig compote and hints of cinnamon are layered through the full-bodied finish. The wine is focused in approach, but expands through the finish. Hedonistic and savory. Enjoy now through 2030.

Robert Parker 94 Points: “The 2014 Heritage McGah Vineyard from Rutherford, is 87% Grenache and the rest 8% Mourvédre and 5% Syrah. This is another sexy wine with. peppery, Provencal herb and strawberry notes soard from the glass of this fragrant, intriguing wine. It is medium to full-bodied with loads of glycerin, a voluptuous texture and a long, pure finish. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.”
