2016 Smith Devereux "3" Red Blend
Smith Devereux “3” Red Blend is a powerful, spicy wine that features flavors of ripe red fruit, dark chocloate and toasty oak. Supple and relaxed yet bold and earthy, the flavors and textures of this complex wine transport you to the dusty roads, rolling hils and blue skies of our prized Northern California vineyards and the days we spend in them.
Smith Devereux was founded by John Truchard, Steve Smith and Ian Devereux White, and this wine pays homage the these 3 friends. It’s also the 3rd release under the Smith Devereux label. The label may carry the names of Smith and Devereux, but it’s the partnership of all 3 gentleman that make this wild journey possible every day.
We also believe “3” is the magic number (yes it is, Schoolhouse Rock and De La Soul confrim this), just think about how many great things come in 3s, and without 1 and 2, you can’t make “3”.
Hand harvested and aged in 50% new French oak for 6 months. 75% Syrah / 25% Zinfindel
Flavor profile: Dark chocolate, mocha, toasted oak, vanilla, spice, crisp tannins and black cherry.
