Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Renegade presents heady aromas of plum, cherry, violets, vanilla bean and savory leather with a suggestion of baking spice. Juicy flavors of red and black fruits co-mingle seamlessly across a rich, expansive palate, revealing hints of wildberry jam, sage and cedar. Lively yet integrated acidity lends elegance to this otherwise powerful wine, carrying notes of black pepper into a long, balanced finish.

The full-bodied yet polished character of the 2016 Renegade is an excellent match for rack of lamb, grilled pork chops, bacon-wrapped filet, and black pepper-crusted roast beef.

Blend: 32% Syrah, 25% Zinfandel, 20% Malbec, 19% Petit Verdot, 4% Petite Sirah

Critical Acclaim

COMMENTARY: I was already attracted to the name of this wine, "Renegade." The winery talks about "missionaries to gunslingers, roughriders to outlaws" is presenting this wine to the marketplace. Indeed the 2016 Renegade lives up to its name. TASTING NOTES: This wine blasts the nose and the palate with black fruit and oak before settling into a finish that is smooth and urbane. Pair its rich palate textures with grilled spicy pork ribs. (Tasted: July 5, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
This blend of 32% Syrah, 25% Zinfandel, 20% Malbec, 19% Petit Verdot and 4% Petite Sirah offers aromas of iodine, tar, black pepper and cassis. There is a tarry texture to the palate, where a ripe black-currant backdrop is spiced by savory sea salt and pepper dust.

Ancient Peaks Winery Video

We are a family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast.

Just look at a map of Paso Robles wineries and at the very southern tip you will find our Vineyard. Here, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774.

Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast.

Ancient Peaks implements numerous sustainable viticultural practices to ensure natural quality in their wines while protecting the rich, native environment surrounding the Margarita Vineyard. Their practices have earned SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certification for Margarita Vineyard, the leading standard for viticultural sustainability.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
