Again under rated by the professionals. Chronic Cellars SOFA KING BUENO 2017 from Passo Robles is AMAZING!!!!! A blend of syrah, grenache, petite sirah, tannat, and Mourvedre. This is almost like an Organ Pinot noir except better!!!!! Its not overly complex, but so easy to drink with no sourness nor bitterness. Lots of cranberry and blackberry up front. There is also cherry!!! The finish leaves a lingering semi dry oaky dark chocolate and buttery finish!!!!!!! So YUMMY... As they say at Chronic Cellars, “Wishes in one hand. Chronic in the other.”

Black Cherry, vanilla nose.
Some leather smokiness as it opens up. Pretty good stuff

Pale complexion. Bright and young red fruit on the nose. Fruit forward with soft, almost non existent tannins that roll in later on the palate. Short finish.

After opening up and warming up in temperature, Smoky and cedar notes came out on the palate and the tannins rounded out, improving the experience. Still lacking a bit of density. Not half bad though.

Good for the price point. Love the name, but marketing isn't wine making. I do like the tannat in this. Of all their reds I tasted I would probably buy this.

Well worth it. Really enjoyed the taste and the quality. Not much of a refined wine connoisseur, but I can at least differentiate low quality from high, and this ladies and gents is a damn good wine. Buy it.
