To escape from the law, she faked her own death.

Identified later by her signature flowing red locks, she earned the treacherous moniker “Back From the Dead Red.”

As deadly as she was beautiful, her legend continues to inspire many a buccaneer.


This maverick wine could only be created by two winemakers unafraid of bucking the trends and going against the grain. Alison Crowe and Barbara Ignatowski, veteran winemakers and wine blenders, channeled the devil-may-care spirit of Jacquotte Delahaye by blending Cabernet Sauvignon with Pinot Noir and Petite Sirah. The result is an unexpectedly rich, silky and dark concoction which balances ripe fruit with bold extracted flavors.


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. In an attempt to evade the law, Jacquotte faked her own death. Upon being recognized by her signature flowing red hair, she earned her treacherous moniker “Back From The Dead Red”, stirring fear into the hearts of any who saw her fiery red locks at the helm. As deadly as she was beautiful, her legend continues to inspire many a buccaneer.

This stunning and opulent cuvee is a fearlessly layered with dark berry aromas and flavors of sweet black fruits.
