2017 St. Amant Speakeasy Red
This is the 6th vintage of Speakeasy Red. All the rules are thrown out, and the winemaker simply go through all the barrels and put together the best blend that they can. This year’s wine is once again about 65% Marian’s Vineyard Zinfandel, followed by Barbera, Tempranillo, Souzao, and the “secret ingredient.” As you know, it couldn’t rightfully bear the “Speakeasy” name without a secret ingredient. Needless to say, we think it makes a pretty good wine – ripe and juicy, with vibrant fruit flavors, and underling spice complement a rich full-bodied mouthfeel.
