Wine Enthusiast Review
#1 Top 100 Best Buy of 2022
This is a rather meaty, substantial wine for a fair price. Aromas of boysenberry, elderberry, roast beef and violet lead into a thick palate of cassis, more violet and pleasant mocha touches.
Wine Tasting Notes
The Highlands 41 Black Granite Paso Robles Red Blend is a fascinating blend of red varietals sourced from our estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Zinfandel and Petite Sirah form the foundation of this wine. The varietal components of this red blend were aged in oak for ten months. With bright color and high fruit intensity, the 2020 Black Granite shows lively flavors of raspberry, blackberry and plum with warm notes of spice, brown sugar and vanilla. This is an approachable, well-integrated wine with long, soft tannins and a smooth finish.
45% Zinfandel, 20% Petite Sirah, 15% Malbec, 10% Syrah, 10% Merlot
