Paso Robles Syrah

Tablas Creek Vineyard

Côtes de Tablas Paso Robles Grenache Blend 2019

The 2019 Côtes de Tablas is medium dark in the glass, ruby red with a nice violet tinge. The nose delivers lots of fruit - strawberry, cherry, red currant - and delivers it in such a fresh manner. The fruit of Grenache, the power of Syrah, the structure of Mourvèdre and the wildness of Counoise work together splendidly. The flavors are fresh and bright, almost as if there had been no oak involved. It is almost surprising, considering the muscular grapes in the blend, that the wine has a light and elegant feel. The tannins are firm but not a bother, so pairing is easy without losing the sipping factor. — 17 days ago

Turtle Rock Maturin James Berry Vineyard Syrah Mourvedre 2017

PERFECTION!
A beautiful split of 50% Syrah and 32% Graciano and 18% Grenache all from the James Berry Vineyard. This full-bodied wine was fermented with whole clusters and barrel aged for two years in 50% new French oak. Deep blackberry fruit, rich and layered flavors of cassis and licorice with a subtle background meatiness. Drinking nicely on release, yet will evolve gracefully for over a decade.

Familia Nueva

Liberté Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Color of different shades of purple, a bit cloudy. Nose of fresh cranberry, spices, strength of alcohol, soda powder, cherry jam, and some more burning sensation in the nasal cavity. Nose is beyond average. Taste follows the nose with addition of sweetness, really soft tannins, blackberry, a bit jasmine tea, and hint of vanilla. Aftertaste is medium, clean, mellow, and enjoyable. Except just a bit too sweet for me, this one is nice! Considering the price tag, she is awesome. — 13 hours ago

Saxum Vineyards

Paderewski Vineyard Zinfandel Blend 2014

Six different grapes in this one 30% mourvedre, 22% zin, 13% syrah, 13% tempranillo, 12% grenache, and 10% petite sirah). It’s Saxum so it’s awesome by definition, but what blew me away was that it was pretty aproachable right away…but was still drinking great after we set a little aside in the fridge for 5 days! Don’t know how Justin does it, but I’m glad he does! — 13 days ago

Estate Fire Sign Cabernet-Syrah Blend 2018

9.1

This small winery’s top bottling, Fire Sign is a blend of CS, Syrah, and Zin, all estate grown. And it certainly is the best in terms of quality - though the Grenache bottling remains my favorite.

Cassis, plum, raspberry, vanilla, roasted coffee beans, light menthol and hint of leather. Soft gentle entry and the flavors then expands on the mid palate with additional nuances of herbes de Provence. Round acidity and polished tannins.

The 18’ is sleeker and more luscious than the 16’.

Chopping Block Paso Robles Syrah Blend 2017

9.3

Another one of my bottles opened for a massive Paso theme. After having the 2016 last year during a virtual tasting with Connor of Fulldraw, I think this 2017 has more upfront appeal whereas the 2016 has a touch more longevity.

I double decanted this for an hour, then put it in a decanter at my destination where I followed it for the next 4hrs. The profile didn’t really change all that much after the first 1-2hrs. This is high octane without being overblown and flabby. Half Syrah, with the remaining split between Grenache and Mourvèdre. Gorgeous royal purple in the glass. Aromatically I didn’t pick up a lot of smoked meat/savory Syrah notes, but mostly a lot of dark chocolate dipped black cherries, dark floral potpourri and fleshy fruits...as if it were mostly Grenache. The palate was the same...high toned ripe fruit with nice lift and acidity, and an airy jammy character I find in high quality Paso wines.

I saved the last third of this and opened again the next day and there was zero change. Best over the next 3-5yrs for this type of profile.
