Congratulations, Paso: The most repulsive smelling wine I’ve had in 30+ years. Fortunately, only the past 15 have been experiencing Paso wines–otherwise I’d no doubt be dead. This winery is rumored to be defunct. For good reason. Dare me to taste it? I HAVE to taste it.
In the mouth, the pond-water nose over-rides everything, but intense sweet prune comes on, flabby and disgusting, over an electrical-fire burn. How can this possibly be Cabernet? If this were Zinfandel, I would toss it a bone, but no. It’s Cabernet.
This is miserable wine with no merit and a waste of ink.
