This Zin from Paso was very special. An elevated and unexpected experience with a Zin. So often overly jammy or rich, this one was sophisticated and more complex. Small producer who clearly knows his stuff. Well done! — 2 years ago
Last bottle at Hospice du Rhône 2018. Depeche Max pulled this out of his hat late in the evening while Yves Gangloff and Mark Adams (Saxum/Ledge) were jammin’ on a Dead song at the closing BBQ. . Fitting end to a great weekend. Still a stunning wine, — 3 years ago
Crazy blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Cinsaut, 20% Tannat; 10% Petite Syrah, 5% Syrah and 5% Zinfandel from the James Berry, Adams Ranch and G2 Vineyards.
Consumed over 2 days; Day 1 was dominated by the Grenache with a lifted sweetness of ripe strawberry and raspberry jams, red currants and really cool streak of citrus mid-palate; Day 2 showed more of a darker and savory palate with a heavy dose of Syrah and Tannat; spice and iron with black pepper on the back end; all these grapes played so well together presenting a lush and silky mouthfeel; 15% ABV wasn't even noticeable. — 4 months ago
The nose of a cooling blackberry pie on a windows ledge.
This has heft, and you can tell the love that went into this. All the dark berries, yet in the brighter side - elegant, I wish I had bought a case. So, so good. Tangy lip smacking acidity with tannin overtures. — a month ago
Viewed my first rocket launch tonight, a SpaceX Falcon 9 out of Vandenberg AFB. Photo is just after booster separation. Booster then returned and landed. This is the only wine I Had with a space tie, at least in name. A former second label for Mark Adams of Ledge and long time Saxum assistant. I presume this is a GSM. Big fruit Paso profile and 15.5% ABV. Tasty and a good buy at $15. — 2 years ago
