A caretaker of trees, The Arborist pays homage to the iconic Paso Robles oaks. The 2020 vintage is a dark ruby color. Aromas of black cherries and plums with hints of spice and fine tobacco. Medium-bodied with dark stone fruits, dark chocolate and textured tannins.
Blend: 40% Syrah, 32% Petite Sirah, 13% Grenache, 7% Grenache, 6% Tannat, 2% Petite Sirah
This ever-reliable estate blend of 40% Syrah, 34% Petite Sirah, 20% Grenache and 6% Tannat begins with aromas of crumpled lavender, crushed elderberry, white pepper and dried meat on the nose. The palate combines purple flower and dried elderberry, with a hint of old leather.
