Gravity Red Blend is named for a remote, hard-to-reach block on one of the lowest slopes of the Monte Rosso Vineyard. Its location on the edge of a canyon yields grapes with exceptional intensity. Decadent dark fruit notes of plum and black raspberry are balanced with a plethora of supporting players – hints of cinnamon, cedar, graphite and pepper add dimension and complexity to this strikingly rich red blend.
92pts James Suckling "Lots of luscious fruit with soft, silky tannins that are bold and rich. Full-bodied, dense and rich. Big wine. Flavorful finish."
90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate "The 2017 Proprietary Red Blend Gravity is a blend of 62% Petite Sirah, 21% Zinfandel, 16% Syrah and 1% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple colored, it charges out of the glass with prunes, blueberry pie, baked black cherries and spice cake notes plus touches of dried mint and incense. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a solid, chewy structure and plenty of juicy black and blue fruits finishing earthy."
The Mount Peak story begins more than a century ago at the celebrated Monte Rosso Vineyard and culminates with the revival of Mount Peak Winery, a vestige of one of California’s ghost wineries. Their wines are inspired by this great place, and they pay tribute to the extraordinary winery that once stood there by capturing its enduring spirit in their wine.
