This cuvee of Cabernet Sauvignon (70 percent) and Syrah (30 percent) isn’t your everyday wine at $52 retail, and that’s why it’s just the ticket for celebrating a special moment. Winemaker Austin Hope said his goal is to produce a Cabernet-based blend that represents Paso’s best. Upfront aromas and flavors of sweet black cherry, currants, plums, and wild berry notes are nicely highlighted with nuances of chocolate and toasty oak. Deliciously drinkable on its own, it’s a lovely complement for salty blue cheese, gruyere, grilled steaks and quail, or roast chicken. Available at Scolari’s, BevMo! or online at www.treana.com.
