Yep wow! The nose has aromas of Bing cherry, pencil shavings, sandalwood, and cardamom. Then it unfolds a finish of rose oil and Indian spice and plum.

I have known for years that Paso Robles makes great wine. This is an excellent example of what perfect weather, abundant water and great soils can produce. Deep rich dark fruit and extremely fine silky tannins! @Paul T @Ron R @Jim Trobaugh @Bill Bender @Jacqueline @Eric Shanks @Connor McMahon @Martin G Rivard

@Ron R Speaking of tipping the scales; this is 16.2%. Smokey, earthy, brooding and offering loads of dark fruits, framed by dense yet clever tannins, toasty oak and enough acidity to let the unity fold nicely. Not my preferred style, but quality wise very impressive.

Drats I should have waited to open the 2014 Block B. Its July 2020 and discovered this wine is still in its infancy. Has tremendous potential w nose tannins mouthfeel taste to be a real superstar. Would recommend laying down for another 3-4 years.

Still too early to the party. Second time at this, still needs a few years. Oh has it changed in a year though. It’s massive. Deep nose of fruit, with silky tannins and deep black fruit on the palate. Olive and charcuterie. Round out this incredible expression of Syrah. Time will be kind but it’s limited
