2016 Law "Aspire" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1477251 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Mostly Syrah blended with 14% Grenache, the 2016 Aspire is another powerhouse beauty from this team. Deep black (and some blue) fruits, notes of ground pepper and spiced meat, full body, ripe, pure tannins, and a big finish all make for a blockbuster effort that's beautifully ripe (not overripe or underripe), balanced, and just incredibly compelling. It's another wine that will benefit from short-term cellaring and keep for a decade. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Aspire is a blend of 86% Syrah and 14% Grenache aged 22 months. Opaque ruby-purple, it explodes with cassis, Castelvetrano olive, peppercorn, milk chocolate, roast coffee and grilled meats scents with notes of chargrill and earth. Full-bodied, rich and packed with black and blue flavor layers, it has a powerful, ultra fine frame and surprising freshness, finishing long and dense. This merits at least another 3-5 years in bottle. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Spice-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, smoky bacon, succulent herbs and baking spices pick up a sexy floral nuance with air. Juicy and energetic in the mouth, offering pliant black and blue fruit, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that show sharp definition and strong back-end thrust. Becomes deeper with air, with no loss of energy, and finishes smoky and very long, with smooth tannins and repeating floral and bacon notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Brooding, yet focused and polished, with deep blackberry, dark mocha and smoky pepper flavors that gather richness toward refined tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2020)
