This might be the best Rhone style wine I've had from Paso. We had this with wines that were twice and triple the price. This held it's own and them some. Wine was in a perfect state. Fruity and earthy with great balance. Can't wait to buy more.
This is one seriously good bottle of wine right now. I actually had somewhat low expectations after a less than great 2002 recently, but this bottle really shined tonight. Starts with a mouthwatering nose and then the mid palate is just a wow right now, a fruit explosion that has developed just a touch, that shows a great expression of Paso wine. This is a medium heavyweight but it really carries it well and is just seemless to the finish. The are some fine tannins, just enough to square off the fruit and linger on the tongue for a nice lengthy finish. I had convinced myself not to hold these VC's very long but this wine has definitely benefited from the bottle age.
