Flows into the palette like a marble over a small grass hill, wonderfully finish with the same great Mourvèdre finish we’ve come to love from wineries in Paso Robles in the past few years. — 6 days ago
Young, but very drinkable. Lavender and leather on the nose. Soft fruit—￼black raspberries—￼on the front of the tongue. Medium tannic structure￼￼. Mineral high notes on the mid palate, with a long finish—and those mineral high notes keep vibrating at the back of the mouth, while a pleasant velvety smoothness kisses the back of my throat. I like this wine! I’m not sure why people are giving it lower ratings. Poor quality control? I’ll have to buy another bottle and see.￼
Follow up note: I left this in a decanter for about an hour and a half after my initial tasting, and this wine turned flat and bitter. So I guess it’s best drunk soon after decanting. I think this might explain the low ratings that other people gave it. Well, some wines are sort of ephemeral... — 25 days ago
So mellow in a really good way. Light cherry. A little smoky. — 3 days ago
Time for a nicely aged Moscato for #AgedWineTuesday.
This is a delicious 14 year old, Moscato from Paso Robles. Showing ripen apples and citrus fruits, cooked oranges, honey, melons, tropical fruits, peaches, light vanilla, bananas, apricots, guava, tangerines, mediterranean spices and black pepper.
Sweet on the palate and nicely balanced, with high acidity to balance it out.
Full bodied with great complexity and a nice mouthfeel.
Long finish with tangy lemons.
Loved the nose, but the palate is much more interesting and tasty. Usually it's the other way for me.

Thank you Elvira and David for sharing this with us.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with an Italian berry tart. Delicious.
