Winemaker's Notes:

A well-crafted blend of: Syrah, Petite Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Mourvedre

It makes you feel good — just like that old red truck your grandfather had...big-hearted, well-made, and full of life. Red Truck Winery has blended some of their Syrah with their Petite Sirah and Cabernet Franc for a juicy berry base then added a bit of Grenache and Mourvedre to round out this baby with licorice and spice for a full-bodied finish.

About Red Truck Winery:

START YOUR ENGINES The idea for Red Truck Wines began when Fred and Nancy Cline of Sonoma, California's Cline Cellars fell in love with a painting of a classic, old red truck, purchasing it at an auction benefiting the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art. Created by internationally renowned Sonoma-based artist Dennis Ziemienski, the light-filled painting of a vintage truck set against a typical Sonoma landscape of soft, golden hills, bright blue sky and cotton ball clouds seemed destined to become a sensational new wine label with universal appeal.
