A nice Paso style Bordeaux blend. Fruit forward. Big burst of blackberry. Softened by the Petit Verdot. Mid-palette finish.

Dark ruby. A powerhouse meritage. A silky smooth wine. Nose profile is representative of Bordeaux grapes that continues to evolve when opened in the glass.

Blueberry blackberry's dark deep fruits are layered by very fine and silky tannins and a finish of spring flowers. This is a full-bodied wine.

Should be called "Mother of God." Rip-roarin' dark red fruit and tannins, gobs of flavor and structure. Could age but doesn't need to.

Paso in a bottle. Perfect encapsulation of Paso's heights.

"Purple drank." Would have guessed Syrah, but it's a Bordeaux blend. Whatever, I still enjoyed it in a guilty pleasure sort of way, but it's pretty over the top.

Wonderful dark fruit, cassis, blackberry, deep blueberry, rich smokey notes and a long finish. Full bodied on day one and day two!
