Lively packaging. Light plum and pepper. Sheer with good acid and structure. Little tight still.

Much more finesse and Han expected but still tightly wound. Needed patience but I'm impatient.

Bold, blackberry/bramble, mocha, fresh mint, blueberry pie. Extracted but balanced in terms of alcohol and tannin, with moderate acidity.

Drinks just like a Rhône actually. Light with a smooth body to it. Takes a more refined palate than mine probably but I like it.

Great example of the quality that comes out of Paso Robles, needed a little time to open up, fantastic wine with great depth

This is absolutely outstanding. Beautiful fruit on the nose, the tannins are sweet and incredibly well integrated - pretty remarkable given the blend (lots of mourvedre) and its (relative) youth. Not sure what the ageing potential is on this, but I can’t imagine this getting any better. One of the best wines from Eric Jensen at Booker that I’ve ever had. Just terrific.
