(From 2007 Vintage) A seductive, expansively scented and flavored wine displaying abundant amounts of black cherry and strawberry fruit intermixed with pepper, roasted herbs, and spice. It is a delicious California Cotes du Rhone look-alike. This terrior-driven wine has luscious plum and dark berry aromas with silky fruit flavors and old-world earthy nuances that show off the wonderful distinctness of Paso Robles fruit.
