Wine Review: This very dark midnight purple colored blend from Paso opens with a fragrant boysenberry bouquet with a hint of blueberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a black currant and boysenberry blend with notes of minerality and black cherry. I did detect a hint of anise in the end. The finish is dry and it does not really show many tannins. This blend is very food friendly and would pair well with a filet mignon off the grill. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: A true Meritage and somewhat unusually lead by Malbec, but only just, as the three main varietals are effectively proportioned a third, a third, a third (Try it with an Irish accent). 32.5% Malbec from La Vista, 31.45 Cabernet Sauvignon from Brecon, 28% Petit Verdot. Live Oak. The eagle eyed amongst you will spot this does not quite add up to 100%. The balance is all Estate Cab Franc.
