2018 Banshee Mordecai Proprietary Red Blend
The very rough and unscientific formula is this: about a third Bordeaux varieties, about a third Rhône varieties, and about a third other varieties dominated by Zinfandel with a bit of this or that peppered in. An organic Carignan vineyard in Redwood Valley continues to expand its influence in Mordecai, acting as a bridge between the Rhône and Bordeaux lots.
