Last year, winemaker Edgar Torres brought us a couple wines that were simply amazing! This year is no different, other than the fact that he has a new wine that is really gets us excited! His latest bottling is called "Toro de Paso", a blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Tempranillo and Grenache are a couple of the primary grapes in many Spanish reds, and coming from this Central Coast region, calling this wine Toro de Paso just made sense.
Offering plenty of underbrush, loamy earth, spice and mulled black fruits, the 2013 Toro de Paso is medium-bodied, nicely concentrated, with good fruit, but a firm, savory edge to its tannin. Give bottles a year in the cellar but plan on drinking by 2023. The blend in 2013 is 65% Tempranillo, 25% Grenache, 5% Cabernet, and 5% Merlot, all of which spent two years in oak.
A blend of 56% Tempranillo, 24% Grenache, and 20% Graciano, Beyond Category is a wine for collectors and enthusiasts alike, being the most stand out cuvee amongst its peers. Its distinction and finesse are noticeable with the first sip; Graciano fills the mid-palate with electricity and tension, complimenting the silken and brilliant textures of Law Estate's Tempranillo. Experience the infinite balance of violet and dark fruits, in a symphony of ample, yet silky and exceptionally well-integrated tannins. Chalk this blend up to a classic that will test your patience in not opening immediately.
