Last of my bottles. This has a profile that seems to allow for early drinking, and the tannin and acidity here don’t make me regret finishing these (though I’m sure this will be just fine for 5+yrs in this type of profile).
Between a 92-93 here. One of my bottles poured for a big Paso theme (2010 Epoch Block B, 2015 Torrin Akashi, 2012 Saxum JBV, and others), this was close to pop and pour. When I first had this two years ago, it had a reductive/smoked meat profile on the nose that has disappated. Aromatics show lots of black cherry, black raspberries, amaretto, baking spices and espresso. Quite perfumed. The palate is juicy and lush, with more high toned black fruits, cedar, a roasted character and a lip smacking jamminess on the finish. Unabashedly Paso.
As an aside, it’s crazy how these can be found around $50 now after Constellation bought this label out...I paid $75! Good value at $50, not so good at $75. — 15 days ago
