2011 Paydirt Red Wine

$29.99 (retail) Wine Club pricing reflected in receipt

Upon returning home from Spain, the Paydirt Red Wine was the first California juice I tasted in more than two weeks.  What a homecoming!  Spanish wines I encountered were uniformly wonderful, but returning to my roots was sweet!

Mac Myers and Patrick McNeil are two Gaelic boys making wine in Paso Robles.  So far, their portfolio consists only of sauvignon blanc and the red wine we’re presenting to the Wine Club.  What a treat!  I really appreciate the massive fruit of zinfandel/syrah blends, and the petit really jacks this up in color and depth; the grenache softens the entry and overall impression of the wine.  Very, very nice effort.

Winery Tasting Notes:  “The dark, black fruit from the Zinfandel, Syrah, and Petite Sirah play the leading role in this five varietal heritage blend. Red fruit elements emanate from the Grenache, while the Mourvedre lends an inky, earthy impression and weight to the palate. This wine is complex, concentrated, and well-structured. It erupts with endless plum, blackberry, and currant as well as anise, licorice, black pepper, and other savory notes. The acid and tannins are well-managed, balanced, and a perfect match for this ripe and generous Paso Robles red wine.
