Wine Review: This dark red blend from Paso Robles opens with a graphite and red plum bouquet with a hint of red cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a tasty red plum and mild mineral blend with notes of raspberry tea. I also detected hints of red cherry and thyme. The finish is dry and its flavors and mild tannins drift away nicely. This crowd-pleasing red blend is food friendly and would pair well with grilled niçoise tuna steaks. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A lovely nose, very Syrah, of pine forest, pancetta, blackberry, and dried herbs. The mouth is juicier than the nose suggests, with smoky blackberry, licorice root, crushed rock, and saddle leather, with chalky tannins and flavors of black cherry and freshly turned earth that come out on the finish. Delicious now, but still fleshing out, and with the substance and balance to age for up to a decade.
