Depicted by the crosshairs symbol on the bottle, Deadeye refers to the level of precision employed in Provenance's winemaking. This blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Petite Sirah with small percentages of Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec aged 18 months in French, American, and Hungarian oak; on the nose, blackberry and licorice draw you in deeply as lavender and graphite settle the score. The wine is a textural dream: creamy with melting fruit and sumptuous notes of violets and blueberry pudding. White pepper spices the upper palate, sparking an exciting final burst of flavor.
Wine Enthusiast Review
A Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant blend, this includes 12% Petit Syrah and smaller amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. The combination works, delivering thick flavors of mocha, sage, tobacco and rich red berry. Concentrated, there's acidity, boosting the wine's breadth and length.
Wine Tasting Notes
Expressive aromas of ripe black cherry, blackberry, and dark chocolate invite the senses, complemented by subtle notes of cola and clove spice. Expressive and opulent, the palate showcases structured tannins, rounded out by the ripe jubilee of exuberant red berry fruits, cassis, raspberry, cranberry preserves, and vanilla bean flavors. Fleshy and chewy, this wine is deliciously round and plush. Very appealing now but will continue to mature for at least ten years.
