Winemaker's Notes:

25% aged in seasoned French oak and 75% in redwood uprights for 20 months, Winemaker Mark Beaman's distinctively unique mix of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, and Grenache tastes of black cherries, peppered back with a velvety vanilla and caramel finish.

About the Blend:
Wines That Rock, The Official Wine of Rock 'n Roll is all about pairing wine & music. With the Grateful Dead echoing in the cellar, our winemaker crafted this red wine blend from premium Mendocino County fruit, blending a one-of-a-kind wine with Rock 'n Roll mythology.

To capture the essence of the live energy of the Grateful Dead's Steal Your Face, Winemaker Mark Beaman chose to meld several varieties into one. Just as the band members would segue through various musical styles, this wines far reaching flavors melt seamlessly from one to the next, blending Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel & Grenache. In honor of the band's famous improvisational concerts that have brought joy to so many, this wine celebrates Mendocino County's bounty of diversity and freedom of experimentation.
