Syrah Paso Robles Westside 2012 PharaohMoans
|Region||Napa, North Coast|
The brilliant 2012 PharaoMoans is a blend of 98% Syrah and 2% Grenache that was aged in 80% new French oak barrels prior to bottling. A big, rich and fleshy Paso red, it knocks it out of the park with its chocolaty dark fruits, pepper, olive and charred meat-like aromas and flavors. This isn’t for those craving delicacy, yet it stays clean and classy, with full-bodied richness, thrilling amounts of texture and a seamless, focused finish. There’s not a track record here with regards to aging, yet this should be better in another year and have at least a decade of prime drinking.
