    September 19, 2021 - Delicious and almost but not quite sweet tasting. One of the finest Grenaches I have had.

    July 6, 2021 - So fresh. Just so good. Nice mouthfeel
    Ripe red fruits intermingled with sole crushed flowers and mild spices
    Beautiful wine

    April 30, 2021 - Drank over 5 days via coravin. Fantastic Paso expression of Grenache.
    Red and dark cherry plus spicy features with medium to long finish. Making me think of two things: GNR's "Sweet child of mine" and Gaudi's
    La Sagrada Familia. Too bad its my last 2016 Ripper. Thanks to folks from "Booker" for this nectar.

    February 20, 2021 - Dark and opaque with a ruby rim, scents of raspberry and floral mix on the nose, spreads into feathery bliss with air, full bodied, medium acid, long tannin, flavors of raspberry, red cherry, licorice, white pepper and smoke are followed by a hauntingly dark finish, overall it carries itself well and goes so well with BBQ filet mignon

    February 6, 2021 - Up a point from the previous review. All four of us enjoyed this wine. Cherries and raspberries with a solid steak of garrigue acting as the backup. We consumed this as a PNP at room temperature and this is ready to go, but cellar temp may have been even better. Eric Jensen is doing great things in Paso.
