Winemaker Notes

For Russell P. From Paso is a place to push new frontiers in the exploration of full-force flavor. Milk & Honey exposes the best of the promised land. Tempranillo was chosen as the base of this blend due to its similarity to one of Paso's new keystone varietals, Grenache, while also giving a nod to the region’s stylistic similarities to Ribero del Duero. While Paso is an emerald city for some, it is also home to derelicts and grifters and ne'er–do–wells, for whom the artwork is an homage.Varietals: 35% Tempranillo, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% SyrahThis is a winter solstice dinner with the lost Dauphin at the Nam Hai Four Seasons in Hoi An. Black earth, rare beef Pho, hoisin sauce, warmed whole star anise, creosote, Fernet and Coke, rose hip tea, distant diesel, sarsaparilla, lapsang souchong tea all nished with night dense coffee and condensed milk and the brooding sense that your card will be declined.

Critical Acclaim

V92

Vinous

Inky ruby. Primary black and blue fruits, potpourri, peppery spices and a subtle hint of vanilla on the deeply perfumed nose. Sweet, concentrated boysenberry and cherry cola flavors spread out steadily in the mouth, picking up spiciness and a touch of candied flowers on the back half. Lush, broad and seamless in texture, finishing with impressive energy and smooth tannins that contribute shape and gentle grip.

Jeb Dunnuck

Seeing 18 months in mostly new French oak, the 2015 Milk & Honey (with close to equal amounts each of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) is another deep ruby/black colored effort that offers lots of leafy herbs, pepper, bay leaf, smoke tobacco and black fruits. Rich, concentrated, chewy and moderately tannin, it's another serious mouthful of fruit to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years.
