From Paul Lato, the 2018 is 80% syrah and 20% grenache. Really closed out of the gate and never really opened up over the course of an hour or two in the glass, we put the cork back in and put it in the fridge. Tried it again after a couple of days. Unbelievable difference - really terrific. I’d suggest a multi-hour decant on this one or forget about it for a couple of years. Either of these approaches and you’ll be treated to another great wine from Paul Lato.

Needed a few hours to open and integrate, but when it did it was full of big fruit and raisin with smoke and earth. Well balanced with a long palette.
