2013 Law Estate "First Tracks" Paso Robles Red Wine

SKU #1327223 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2013 First Tracks from Law Estate Wines didn’t arrive in enough time to make the Paso Robles report so I’ve opted to include it in this report. A blend of 40% Petit Verdot, 32% Syrah and the balance Cabernet Sauvignon, it’s a beautiful wine that shows plenty of Bordeaux-like character at the start, yet picks up more and more Syrah character with time in the glass. Sporting a deep purple color that’s mostly opaque, it offers gorgeous notes of blackberry jam, Asian spices, blueberries, leafy herbs and lead pencil shavings. These give way to a ripe, full-bodied, yet surprisingly elegant and seamless red that has perfect balance, hints of toasty oak, ripe, sweet tannin, and a great finish. This is blockbuster stuff and well worth checking out. It’s beautiful today, yet should keep for at least a decade.  (12/2017)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
