Medium ruby with a very powerful Ripe👃 of blue and red fruits. Blueberries, dried cranberries, a bit of dried herbs, and blood orange. The wine is drier than the nose and the Paso Robles location led me to assume. Plenty of body (full) and tannins, this is what I would call a brooding wine. Medium acidity. Nice, pleasant finish. Would probably have gone better with a heavy stew and fall/winter weather. It’s 90 degrees and I’m drinking it on a walk. That being said, I’m the kinda guy that will eat pizza for breakfast, so it’s still good. — 4 days ago
Not sure where this came from, but we enjoyed it with some stuffed jalapeños. More body than a typical Pinot. Very drinkable. Nice full flavor. Would buy again. — 8 days ago
When I think of Paso reds, ripe and rich are the first things come to mind. Not this bottle though. At 8 years old, the fruits are so fresh and pure. Only on the 3rd day that it started to show some tertiary notes of fig, black tea leaf, and dried mushroom. Love the 13.5% abv.

Color of dark purple, quite inky. Nose of dark fruits with spice, fermented cabbage, vanilla, and just a bit woody. The nose is decent. Taste of ample acidity, good soft tannins, grassy notes plus strawberry, some more dark fruits and ripe grape, and a bit rind. Taste is balanced with flavors. Aftertaste shows some strength of alcohol, a bit peppery note, and some more strawberry. Quite nice. — 7 days ago
