Precise, savory, layered, seamless. With origins from the Southern Rhone, this Grenache-based blend has become so expressive of Paso Robles terroir. This means that New World freshness of fruit coalesce with familiar Old World flavors for a textured and nuanced profile. Black pepper, plum skins, and bramble on the nose serve as a prelude to vibrant raspberry, cranberry, and kirsch on the palate. Sandalwood and sage at the periphery provide a spicy lift. Smooth tannins and nimble acidity result in a festive mouthfeel. The appealing finish quenches with a lively encore.
