Lot 642 | 2015 Paicines
A fantastic red wine value from one of California's oldest and lesser-known AVAs.
Discounted shipping on 12 bottles. Free shipping on 24 or more.
Lot 642 is dark and plush, redolent with spicy cherry, hints of garrigue, and mocha-tinged black fruit. The nose is fantastic already and will continue to develop additional complexity. Juicy and plush on entry but elegantly structured, riding a solid beam of well-integrated tannins that ensures this wine will age nicely. Finishing with a long, lingering oak note, this wine is just begging to be served alongside a flank steak or a juicy ribeye.

Lot 642 is a dynamite value from the hidden gem that is the Paicines AVA, just past the Pinot and Chardonnay vineyards of the Monterey Coast on the other side of the Gabilan Mountains, nestled in the gravel and pebble mélange that comprises the alluvial flows of the San Benito River. Produced by a family of third generation growers from vineyards 1,000 feet up in these ancient alluvial washes, aged in 30% new French oak, and priced at $40/bottle under its original label.
