This vineyard keeps getting stronger and stronger as the vines mature and we get a handle on taming this rugged, mountainous fruit. It's definitely more black fruit focused than the JBV, and a little more dense and chewy, not quite as savory, but it still has a nice loamy earth side to it. I think it's a show stopper. The tannins are remarkable but will definitely benefit from a few years of aging (as will all of our wines). A real banger.
The 2020 G2 Vineyard, which comes from a great vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles, is based largely on Grenache but includes 21% Mourvèdre, 14% Graciano, 11% Syrah, and 2% Carignan. It shows the denser, chewier style of the vintage but has rocking levels of black fruits, charcoal, peppery herbs, and leather. Full-bodied and concentrated on the palate, it offers good tannins and outstanding length.
