Pale golden yellow, excellent clarity. Diesel and floral notes in nose with a hint of sulfite. Lemon, jasmine tea flavors with moderate skin astringency, minerality on finish. Later, unripe pineapple flavor emerges. Dry, austere fruit profile but definitely Riesling, a serious one for the fans of this variety. — 8 days ago
What a tasty treat! Fruity rich berry is the primary taste, but was it my imagination.. did I get a slight mineral taste before the fruit hit my taste buds? It’s heavier than many pinots but lighter than some of their other varietals. I’m excited to try more pinots from Paso! — 4 days ago
This was also relatively open but more complex than the Zotovich. It was my favorite Pinot of the evening. We also had the 2017 Pisoni but I failed to get a pic. The Pisoni was more complex like the Drum Canyon but I feel it will be better in the long run.
Paul Lato was in town and I had the chance to spend some time with him and taste through several of his new releases. His wines are great across the board. — 10 days ago
Monterey cypress and pepper on the nose. Cypress persists slightly on the taste.
Taste morphs into slightly earthy vegetal dryness. — 11 days ago
Fantastic bouquet of dark berries and forest - also elements of blue and dark berries in the taste - although a little sweet for my taste — 4 days ago
This is just a killer Syrah blend. It’s really good as a pop and pour, but explodes with even just 30mins of air. It’s ripe, savory, juicy and smoky all at once. Fresh squeezed blackberries, raspberry pie, cherry pipe tobacco and grilled plum dominate the nose. Not as heavy or dense as expected on the palate, showing a bit of lift with some bacon fat, graphite, and even some more delicate notes of potpourri. At around $50/bottle, this is drinking above that price point right now. — a day ago
