Mission Briefing

Codename:

Paso Surprise

We always love a good surprise at our tasting panel, and today’s Vina Robles 2008 Paso Robles Syrée Red Wine certainly fit the bill. We weren’t expecting too much from today’s Paso Syrah-blend, but wow, did we stumble upon a winner.

A heady blend of 82% Syrah and 18% Petite Sirah, today’s wine is bold, rich, and wonderfully flavorful. Loaded with juicy berry and spicy black peppercorn, today’s wine is guaranteed to impress.

Please accept our boldest recommendation for today’s 90 Point treat.

Tasting Profile

Look:

A super dark, inky, almost midnight crimson through and through.

Smell:

A beautiful lush nose, with deep notes of dark fruit and spice leaping forward. Ripened blackberry and black cherry are joined by freshly cracked black peppercorn, toasty baking spices, smoky sandalwood, and dried Provencal herbs.

Taste:

Deeply layered notes of juicy ripened dark berries are framed against touches of dark chocolate, mocha powder, dried sweet tobacco leaf, rosemary, black peppercorn, and remnants of a fresh log fire.

Finish:

A really nice wine, intensely flavorful, with a lengthy finish that features lingering juicy fruit flavors and silken tannins.

Pairing:

Grilled beef tenderloin, served alongside garlic and rosemary fingerling potatoes.
