Product DescriptionTasting Panel Review
This is a cleverly complex and impressive wine that offers very high value in relation to its asking price. Blended from 34% Cabernet Franc, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec, 5% Grenache, 4% Petit Verdot and 4% Merlot, it is muscular but also nuanced. Black fruit tones predominate - but from the center of a broad sensory spectrum. Spice and light toast notes from French oak (45% new) lend detail, and the likely cost of those barrels makes one wonder how this wine snuck past the company accountants.
Wine Tasting Notes
At its core this Niner Wine Estates Bootjack Ranch Paso Robles Red Blend features three varietals each contributing a different element to the blend. We start with Cabernet Franc as it provides a structural foundation (dry tannin). We then layer in Cabernet for it's complex red fruit and finally Malbec adds a mouthwatering juicy quality. This is a wine that is ready to drink now that broadly showcases the beauty of our two vineyards during an excellent vintage.
