Winemaker Notes

The 2019 Renegade 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.

The robust mouthfeel and savory aromas of the 2019 Renegade make a great match for rack of lamb with rosemary, beef medallions in red wine sauce, hearty meat stew and grilled brisket.

Blend: Syrah 57%, Petit Verdot 33%, Malbec 9%

Critical Acclaim

TP 93
Tasting Panel
A spectacular vintage for this blend of 57% Syrah, 33% Petit Verdot, and 10% Malbec: While bold and concentrated, it has a satiny mouthfeel, filled with jammy notes of blackberry and pomegranate. Savory flavors of sweet tobacco and Luxardo cherry join floral tones in lifting the profile into a crescendo of plush pleasure.
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
This is a savory, smoky, delicious deal of a wine that blends together 57% Syrah, 33% Petit Verdot and 10% Malbec. It begins with grilled pork, dried beef, lava rock and dark berry aromas. The mouthfeel is rich and hearty, as flavors of graphite, smoked berry and soy roll into the finish.

Ancient Peaks, California
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 red 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 resulting in a wide variety of red wine styles. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a red wine blend 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.

How to Serve Red Wine

A common piece of advice is to serve red wine at “room temperature,” but this suggestion is imprecise. After all, room temperature in January is likely to be quite different than in August, even considering the possible effect of central heating and air conditioning systems. The proper temperature to aim for is 55° F to 60° F for lighter-bodied reds and 60° F to 65° F for fuller-bodied wines.

How Long Does Red Wine Last?

Once opened and re-corked, a bottle stored in a cool, dark environment (like your fridge) will stay fresh and nicely drinkable for a day or two. There are products available that can extend that period by a couple of days. As for unopened bottles, optimal storage means keeping them on their sides in a moderately humid environment at about 57° F. Red wines stored in this manner will stay good – and possibly improve – for anywhere from one year to multiple decades. Assessing how long to hold on to a bottle is a complicated science. If you are planning long-term storage of your reds, seek the advice of a wine professional.
