This wine floored us from the very first sip! Ancient Peaks sits in the Paso Robles appellation, 22 miles south of the city itself, and just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here, the surrounding peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range act as a gateway between one region to the south that is exceedingly ocean-cooled, and another to the north that is much, much warmer (sometimes downright hot!). When the days heat up in the areas north and east of Margarita Vineyard, the air rises to create a vacuum that pulls marine breezes and fog inland over the peaks, and right through the vineyard. This means the fruit gets ripe, without any "off" flavors, yet the cooling afternoon breezes help the resulting wine to retain freshness and acidity.

The 2019 Renegade is a blend of Syrah 57%, Petit Verdot 33%, and Malbec 9%, opens with deep, dark bramble fruit aromas. The Syrah asserts itself with savory and smoky notes, while the Petit Verdot provides classic hints of pencil shavings. A juicy texture delivers bold, integrated flavors of blackberry, plum, blueberry and pomegranate with undercurrents of toasty oak, juniper and pepper. Elegant acidity joins chewy tannins on a robust yet beautifully measured finish.
