2016 Linger

2016 Linger

96+ Points from Jeb Dennuck

"The 2016 Linger from Fox Family Vineyard checks in as an interesting split of Syrah and Petite Sirah that spent 22 months in used French Oak.  This inky colored effort offers loads of black fruits, road tar, licorice, and liquid smoke aromatics.  These give way to a concentrated, rich, beautifully textured blend that has terrific purity of fruit, fine tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish." - Jeb Dennuck

Winemaking: Every year, we look so forward to release Linger.  This is our most limited wine that we make almost exclusively for our wine club.  Only two barrels are used to make this opaque, silky powerhouse:  our best barrel of Syrah and our best barrel of Petite Sirah all from our estate vineyard, Fox Family Vineyard.  With only 49 cases of this 50/50 blend, we never pour it in the tasting room, but keep all of the bottles for our Linger fans to enjoy with family and friends.  With its bold palete and long finish, this is a wine that could be savored now, but will really shine with a few years resting in the bottle.  But beware, this wine does sell out quickly!  Reserve your bottles today to ponder one of life's big questions....

Is it the Syrah or the Petite Sirah that makes you want to Linger over another bottle?

Bottle Aging: Enjoy now or age for 10+ years

Retail Price: $75 per bottle / Wine Club Price: $60 per bottle
