Wine Review: Wow, this wine just blew me away at a recent Paso Robles tasting in Anthony’s Pier 4 Restaurant in Boston. This dark purple wine has a terrific fruit forward bouquet that just sucks you in. On the palate, this wine is rich, concentrated, has good balance, and is intense! Its flavor profile is a bit spicy and has hints of anise. This wine screams for a NY Sirloin Steak grilled in butter sauce. The finish is dry and very very extended. This is a terrific effort. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Tempranillo from the "Tres Cajones Vineyard" in Templeton is blended with Syrah and Grenache. Massive, massive wine. Big fruit, big structure, big balls…in fact three. On the palate, big black fruit that seems to resonate with angst. Huge structure with rich tannins; long, long, long on the mouth; a rich oak finish.

Organic status: not organic
