2015 13th & Third "NMR" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

SKU #1458871 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2015 NMR is flat out great and offers a rich, powerful style that stays light and graceful. A blend of 48% Grenache, 27% Mourvèdre, and the rest Syrah brought up in 50% new French oak, it offers beautiful notes of blackberries, ground herbs, and spice in a full-bodied, layered package. Coming from the G2 and Plum Orchard vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles, it’s an awesome wine that readers need to seek out! A new label (at least it’s the first time I’ve tasted the wines), these 13th & Third Wines are made by the talented Don Burns. His NMR blend is one of the finest GSM blends coming out of Paso.

Outer quote mark Opaque ruby. Spice-accented cherry, dark berry and spicecake aromas show very good energy and pick up subtle floral and cola nuances as the wine opens up. Juicy blackberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors put on weight with air, taking on a smoky mineral quality on the back half. Finishes on an appealingly sweet note, displaying impressive tenacity and velvety tannins that fade smoothly into the sappy fruit. (JR) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

K&L Notes

13th & Third's wines are made by Don Burns who is also Assistant Winemaker at Saxum Vineyards. Winemaker's Notes: "The 2015 NMR (red blend) is our flagship wine, and named after Gregg's dad Norman Martin Rothberg who was a true artisan, spending his life creating beauty with his hands. Like his father's art, this wine has the same attention to detail and finesse only an artist can bring. This wine is a "GSM" blend of three Rhône varietals - Grenache (48%), Syrah (25%) and Mourvèdre (27%). The nose shows beautiful notes of black fruit, while on the palette these fruits combine with spice that comes from the partial whole cluster fermentation. 22 months of barrel aging in 40% new French oak results in a wine with good acidity, balanced with soft tannins and a long finish. Only 125 cases produced. Drinkable now through 2030."
