"Also spectacular is the 2010 Collide, a blend of 32% Tempranillo, 32% Carignan, 26% Petite Sirah and the rest Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. A top-notch winemaker who also has a very fine palate and is comfortable blending component parts such as this can accomplish something special in California – and at a realistic price. The 2010 Collide is a superb example of blending unique and distinctive grape varietals to create a full-bodied, deep, nicely structured, rich, broad, savory wine with a lot of sucrosity as well as plenty of red, blue and black fruits. Drink this beauty over the next 7-8 years." -Robert Parker, Jr.
