For Russell P. From, Paso is a place to push new frontiers in the exploration of full-force flavor. Milk and Honey is a blend of 34% Tempranillo, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Syrah, 14% Petit Verdot, and 6% Grenache, and 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.
Russell writes his tasting notes like a story, and this one reads: "As you journey El Camino de Santiago de Compostela through the spectacular Galician countryside, you take respite in a quaint hamlet whose inhabitants welcome you with warm smiles and amazing refreshment. Beef Cecina dipped in olive oil, hearty bean stew and acorn-fed Jamon. A voluptuous local woman o.ers you the wine from the vineyard on the hillside. As you taste the paprika-spiced oak, you wonder if you could end the journey here, lost in the eyes of this dark-haired beauty. Instead, it is a cup of Cafe con Queimada and a few hours of daylight to go. The journey continues, regardless of the destination."
