2015 Passage Founder's Collection

The regional similarities between Paso Robles and the Southern Rhône of France are remarkable. Comparable limestone soils, rolling hillside vineyards, and warm sunny days result in optimal ripening for Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre. With the benefit of a masterful blend, as exemplified in the 2015 Sextant Passage, the connection is affirmed with a message in a bottle. Spicy black pepper, rosemary, and sage on the nose is followed by full-bodied textures of blackberries, boysenberries, and plum sauce on the palate. Hints of cinnamon, dried cranberries, and freshly grounded vanilla beans at the periphery add a bit of kick. A vigorous swirl in the glass and a firm swish on the palate reveal modulated tannins and steady acidity. The finish is plush and sumptuous as the flavors hesitate and dwell before dissipating.
