2016 Law Estate "Beyond Category" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1478191 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Brilliant ruby. Highly perfumed red and dark berry, mocha and floral aromas are given spicy lift by a hint of cracked pepper. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering expansive black raspberry, cherry-vanilla, fruitcake and floral pastille flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Shows powerful thrust and alluring sweetness on an impressively long, gently tannic finish that leaves cherry compote, candied rose and mocha notes behind. 46% new French oak. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This atypical blend of 56% Tempranillo, 24% Grenache and 20% Graciano begins with impressive density to the nose, where aromas of concentrated violet and blackberry paste converge. The palate's immense yet balanced concentration carries cassis and black-cherry flavors into waves of lavender and singed oak. The tannins will uphold these flavors for years. *Top 100 Cellar Selections of 2019* (MK) Inner quote mark (11/2019)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Based largely on Tempranillo yet with 24% Grenache and 20% Graciano, the 2016 Beyond Category is another inky colored wine offering notes of blackberries, dark chocolate, scorched earth, and charred meats. It’s ripe and full-bodied, with beautiful mid-palate density and building tannins. Give it a year or two and enjoy over the following decade. 94+ Inner quote mark (10/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2016 Beyond Category is composed of 56% Tempranillo, 24% Grenache and 20% Graciano aged 22 months in 46% new French oak. It has a deep ruby color and scents of blackcurrants, boysenberries and blueberries with notes of mint chocolate, Italian plums, charcuterie, pepper and coffee bean. The palate is medium to full-bodied, dense and packed with fruit, finely grained and with a long, surprisingly lifted finish. (EB) Inner quote mark (2/2020)
