Fifty-fifty Zin and Syrah, this is classic Paso Robles rustic-chic red wine. It’s dry and soft in acidity, with a slightly rough mouthfeel framing intensely ripe berry, cherry and tobacco fruit. If the flavor was more concentrated, the score would rise dramatically.
This 50-50 blend of Syrah and Zinfandel is quite successful. It’s a full-bodied, lusty wine, dark and dry, whose considerable tannins frame flavors of blackberries, blueberries, leather, sweet currants, black pepper, Chinese Five Spice and cedar. A creative and likeable wine.
