This non-traditional, eclectic red blend, combining Estate and neighboring vineyards, is a canvas for the winemaker’s alchemy skills.  Popularly called a “Paso Blend” this mélange is a “matrimony” of disparate grape varieties, not commonly joined, designed to yield an ultimate synergy of distinctive flavors.  Weighted toward Rhone varieties it displays the particular personality of Mourvedre and to a lesser degree Cabernet Sauvignon, the two main varieties, or 72% of the combined 6 grapes.  The wine exceeds its everyday drinking goals by delivering a mouthful of savory flavors & a sustaining finish.  Drink now or enjoy thru 2015.
