A show-stopping effort for Petite Sirah, the 2018 Ingenuity boasts pure wine entertainment and west Paso character. Seductively bold and intense at first, huge aromas boom from the glass in all the right ways - sweet black tar, licorice spice, juicy blackberries, vanilla toast, lavender, and California chaparral - and the palate corsets all the boldness into elegant, mouthwatering sensations. The texture is of its own creation with this iconoclastic Petite Sirah-led Rhône blend. This gorgeously flavored wine is easy on the eyes too!

Lots of blue fruits, ground pepper, candied violets, and chalky minerality emerge from the 2018 Ingenuity, a pure, medium to full-bodied, seamless beauty with fine tannins and no hard edges. Like all Jordan's 2018s, it holds onto a terrific sense of freshness and elegance. The blend is 36% Petite Sirah, 30% Syrah, 22% Mourvèdre, and the rest Grenache, and comes mostly from the estate Paderewski Vineyard.

Glass-staining ruby. Dark berry preserves, fruitcake, toasty oak, espresso and a hint of vanilla on the expansive nose. Stains the palate with ripe black and blue fruit, mocha, candied licorice and floral pastille flavors, while black pepper and smoky mineral notes add cut and back-end lift. Deeply concentrated but lively as well, thanks to a spine of juicy acidity. Finishes on a youthfully tannic note, with strong, spicy persistence. Raised in French oak barrels and puncheons, 52% of them new.

The 2018 Ingenuity is a blend of 36% Petite Sirah, 30% Syrah, 22% Mourvèdre and 12% Grenache, aged 19 months in 52% new French oak. Opaque in color, it explodes with gregarious blackberry and black cherry jam underpinned by dark, savory spices and wafts of purple flowers. The palate is full-bodied and firm, with loads of lush, spicy dark fruits and just enough juicy acidity to highlight the floral perfume on the long finish. 828 cases were made.

Rustic aromas of herb, tar and tart berry show on the nose of this blend of 36% Petite Sirah, 30% Syrah, 22% Mourvèdre and 12% Grenache. Elderberry and black currant provide more ripe qualities to the palate, where chalky tannins lead into a finish awash in dried oregano and thyme. There, the elements will grow more compelling with time. Drink now through 2034.
