Back From The Dead Red
Out of the deadly Caribbean waters of the 17th Century, comes the true story of Jacquotte Delahaye, an orphan driven to piracy as a tender young girl. Later, to evade the law, Jacquotte faked her own death. But, upon being discovered, earned her treacherous moniker “Back From The Dead Red” stirring fear into the hearts of any who saw her fiery red hair at the helm. As deadly as she was beautiful, her legend continues to inspire many a buccaneer.
Head Winemaker: Alison Crowe
Appellation: 100% California
Buccaneer California Back From The Dead Red Blend is deep ruby in color and has intense red fruit aromas followed by flavors of raspberry, plum, currants and a hint of spice. The bold mouthfeel, velvety tannins and super-long finish add up to a spectacularly bold and balanced Buccaneer Back From The Dead Red Blend.
As wild and free as its namesake, Back From the Dead Red is a audaciously bold blend of Alexander Valley Cabernet, Hames Valley Cabernet, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir and Lodi Petite Sirah. 100% stainless steel fermented, oak-aged 18 months in 50% French and 50% American.
Our Winemakers are modern-day Buccaneers as they naturally like to explore from ridge-top to valley floor in search of the ripest blocks to bring to the winery. After harvest, they plunder the cellar to find the best of the lots to craft the finest wines for all to enjoy.
