Juicy and very Napa like. Tons of color, richness and new oak. There was a philosophy shift here around 2007 and since then it the wine seems very 'made'. It still very good stuff with the right food. Massive wine for sure but very soft and round

Rich young and tannic with plush red fruit a solid peppery core with some heat (16%) finishing racy but will settle down over the next decade or so

Creamy nose. Flavors include mocha or hints of chocolate, vanilla, fruits that really overshadowed by the heavier flavors. Creamy texture. Medium bodied, but has a great tannin structure. Excellent flavors. Very enjoyable and recommended.

Black cherries, candied apple, blueberries and clove. So very smooth (@ 16% abv wine.!)
Perfect balance in structure, with quite supple and subtle tannins. This libation will assuredly leave not even the most discerning of oenologically inclined palates or/and captains of industry crestfallen.

This showed far better than I was expecting. My new associate brought it and it paired well with my surf and turf 🐮🦂 tannic but not overly so. Dark blue/black fruits. Tar, cherry, oak shavings. It paled in comparison to the magnificent Nine Suns but it impressed vs expectations.

Lighter color on this wine with a medium to pale ruby. Nose has red currants, raspberry jam, with maybe a hint of wet gravel, and toffee. Fruit forward with the jammy profile expected out of Paso. Medium to full-bodied, a nicely framed wine, but I think it is missing a bit of depth. The wine is good, but I’m recalibrating my scores on this one. I think my overall scores lately have started to inflate a bit, but maybe it’s just that I’m enjoying wine more these days. Not a bad thing! 😉 I love the label - slick and clean.
