For fans of classic California red blends like The Prisoner or Scout’s Honor, you’re going to fall in love with this rich, ripe, and opulent Paso Robles red.
The 2018 Colossus is a blend of 40% Graciano, 30% Carignan, 15% Grenache, and 15% Syrah. Fermented in cement and stainless steel, the wine sees 12 months of aging in French oak. Despite the wine’s blend of Spanish and French grapes, this is ripe and pleasure-bent all the way. The bouquet is ripe and forward with notes of cassis and blackberry followed by more complex nuances of baking spices, vanilla, smoked meat, and roasted herbs. The palate is full-bodied, ripe, and pure with a soft texture, fine tannin, and a long, satisfying finish and drinks like a wine that is upwards of $50!
