Paso Happens, Occasionally.

Really well-made, interesting stuff.  Wonderful spicy nose, little oak.  Complex and balanced.  Not a fruit-bomb, just perfectly ripe and nice with ample acid and a whallop of tannin.  Westside “hillside” and “estate”, but more Templeton: as in Kiler Canyon.  33% Merlot and the 8% Petit Verdot really struts.  Def unfiltered but clear and fresh.
