(this is actually the Maison Mason Vineyard wine). Has to be one of the best whites made in Paso. Bright aromatics, great depth, with persistent acidity on the palate to keep it moving. Just a terrific wine from Ryan and Nicole at Paix sur Terre, one of the most underrated wineries in all of Paso. — 18 hours ago
Even in the Rhone Valley, Rhone blends don’t get any better than this. Heck, very few California wines get better than this! Sitting on a thousand foot deep (at least!) layer cake of limestone and Miocene sea sediments, the Law vineyards produce some of the most deliciously calcaire wines I’ve ever tasted. Absolute bliss to drink.
On the nose: oregano, mint, and 300-year-old books bound in old leather on the nose. Thick cassis fruit and a hint of eucalyptus on the front. Fruity but not jammy! After the foretaste, this wine is held together with soft limestone tannins. The mid-palate is full of mineral high notes underlaid by fifty-million years of plate tectonics. You’re drinking geologic history here as selectively interpreted by Syrah and Grenache grapes! It’s as if you’re tasting what the grape roots are tasting! Not a particularly long finish, but all the same it’s extremely satisfying. Again with the mineral high notes￼ plus eucalyptus, but they’re all balanced by a cool minty soothingness at the back of the throat. Absolutely lovely!￼ — 6 days ago
