Refined and elegant, yet very tannic and dry, this Cabernet-based Bordeaux blend has deep, inviting flavors of blackberries, black currants, chocolate, cassis and cedar. Notable for its structural complexity.
Here’s a lush, juicy Syrah, rich in black currant, cherry, blueberry, chocolate and coffee flavors that are so long and deep, you just can’t help liking it. The wine is soft in texture, and achieves real deliciousness and complexity.
Soft and lush in blackberry-infused chocolate, cherry, licorice and roasted oak flavors, with a hint of red currants, this Cab is, in a word, delicious. It represents how fine Paso Robles Cabernet can be in the right hands.
This is a slightly more intense version of the regular Castoro bottling, with an extra punch to the berries and a little more zip in the finish. A clean, bright, focused wine, precise and polished, with a natural elegance. Good balance throughout.
Powerful yet austere and hard in dry tannins. Impresses for the depth and length of blackberry, blueberry, currant, tobacco and cedar, but is locked down and resistant. A good wine but a curious one whose future is difficult to predict. Could develop over the next 2–4 years.
A blend of four Bordeaux varieties with 25% Zinfandel, this wine shows its origin in the soft texture and raisiny midpalate. It’s a plushly pleasant, full-bodied, tannic wine with Cabernet-esque qualities, while that Zin adds a wild, brambly, spicy note.
A berry-filled fruit bomb that offers mouthwatering blackberries and blueberries galore, punctuated by fleeting glimpses of licorice. Picks up some coffee and espresso notes on the finish, where the slight bitterness provides needed structure.
The fruit in this wine is really stunning, considering how dry and balanced it is. It’s an explosion of the ripest peaches and tropical fruits, with a buttery, honey-vanilla edge. Firmly in Viognier’s exotic style, and tasty.
