2010 Villa San-Juliette Cabernet Franc SLS Reserve

Paso Robles more

7/7/2015 - klezman wrote: NR

Balanced, mineraly, not terribly complex, but a fun easy drinking and relatively typical Cab Franc. Would never have guessed it was from Paso.

Rich and ripe with a good dose of sweet oak. I usually don't like this style at all, but this is clearly well made and was enjoyable. Tasted alongside the 2006 which was very similar.

A medium-bodied pinot with cherry, smoke and somewhat dusty tannins. This bottle had no hint of barnyard, and I'm pretty sensitive. Really nice bottle of wine!

Enjoyable. Very characteristic of a Tobin wine-very jammie and not holding back on the alcohol. Held up over a few hours. Great velvety mouth feel. Lots of dark ripe fruit on nose and palate.

Nose is ripe, but odd. pineapple, palate is ripe, yet green at the same time. Interesting wine, baking spice, nutmeg. Decent value.

I think more wineries should try a zin mix like this. The syrah and mouvedre have tempered the over-the-top fruit so many zins have. A little too much alcohol heat for my taste, but it was fabulous with our BBQ brisket.

2013 Herman Story Milk & Honey

Paso Robles Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

7/7/2015 - bjamesclark wrote: 93 points

Beyond inky- Deep opaque burgundy bordering on black through the core- that and the medium-plus/high staining in the legs shows the high extraction and maceration techniques used. High viscosity and bright/day-bright reflections.
2.5 hours in the decanter give way to intense aromas and characteristics of all varietals used (35% Tempranillo, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre, 2% Grenache). Complex and robust! Meaty with scents of char grilled steak, smashed blueberries, sweet oak, vanilla creme anglaise, a mix of charcoal and shisha smoke, chili and cinnamon infused chocolate, scorched earth, espresso, rosemary, blood orange, dark cherries and white pepper.
On the palate this wine is concentrated, massive and engaging! High density across the palate, yet balanced. Medium+ acid, Medium/Medium-plus tannins and high alcohol. Rich, dense flavors of char grilled meats, rosemary, espresso, jammy over-ripe blueberries, chili pepper jelly, chocolate, blood orange bitters, cherry, whiskey oak, cigar smoke and traces of white pepper, cinnamon, toasted nuts and hot earth. The finish is intense lingering for one to reconsider all flavors.

Get Some!

Not at all watery, insubstantial or diluted in flavor. In color between a regular rose and a light blue-hued red. I like the firm palate. This may just be the ticket for the hot, hazy and humid weather when the food comes from the BBQ grill and needs a chilled but spicier accompaniment than a white wine. We enjoyed it with Korean Bulgogi. Should pair well with Indian food also.

I agree with DrDan, et avec monsieur Stlam below. Huge flavor, velvety mouthfeel, but the Cab/Syrah mashup confused my tongue. like a chocolate covered blueberry. PNP, but enjoyed more with air. Willing to try it again.

Came off hot from the alcohol and never really blew off. A bit disappointed as there was some good fruit in there. I do love Epochs but this was missing the punch
