My father in law is a big Syrah fan, so I served this gem from Paul Lato. Hugely expressive, the 2013 Cinematique is juicy, slightly velvety, succulent and a hit with my wife’s dad, which is what counts!

Very powerful!!! First experience with a Paul Lato wine, but it won’t be my last. Very familiar flavor profile from the Los Olivos. Blast of blue and black fruits, acidity at medium at this point but still a pleasant tannic press on the long long finish. Still has many many years of life!!

Terrific syrah from Paul Lato. Seriously closed at first - and an earthy component makes you think that it might be showing a hint of cork - but the wine evolves in the glass over the course of an hour or so to reveal amazing, deep aromatics of blackberries, iodine, and wood-roasted meats. Palate is super primary, suggesting that this wine needs either 2-3 hours of decanting or another 3-4 years in the cellar. A terrific offering from Mr. Lato that is only going to improve over time!
