The Bootleg 2013 Red is a fantastic new wine that fans of red blends like The Prisoner will love. Highly recommended while it's still available.

94 Points Robert Parker:
"The 2013 Proprietary Red from Bootleg is a major sleeper of not only the vintage, but in its entire concept. Culled from KJ vineyards on Atlas Peak, Oakville, Mt. Veeder, Rutherford and Spring Mountain. The wine is a blend of 27% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Petite Sirah, 21% Zinfandel, 12% Merlot, and the rest Malbec and Petit Verdot. That’s like throwing in the entire kitchen sink, but the result is a stunningly delicious, complex, big-time, sexy style of wine with a deep, opaque purple color, a beautiful nose of blackberries and blueberries, with some lavender Provençal herbs, licorice and a touch of espresso. The wine has a fabulous texture, a plush, full-bodied mouthfeel, and beautiful purity and depth. It’s something that could only be made in California, given the blend, but it is off-the-charts in terms of its hedonistic appeal. At the same time, it is complex enough to satisfy the intellectual senses as well. Drink it over the next 5-6 years. A big-time winner."

Bootleg Red Blend is opulent, plush, and luscious with red and black fruit, soft tannins and velvety texture. In crafting this 2013 Bootleg Red Blend, winemaker Brian Kosi's intent was to make a big, luscious red blend with loads of dark fruit and power. He used Merlot from Stagecoach Vineyard to serve as the base due to its upfront red fruit and soft tannins that make this wine approachable early on. Combined, the other varietals add structure, depth and richness that bring this blend together.
