Lot 06 Panthos Tasting Notes

Over the last two days, Molly and I have been carefully tasting - actually just downright enjoying - a couple of bottles of our Lot 06 Panthos to try and develop the perfect tasting notes. Here’s what we came up with:

Top notes of Boysenberry and blackberry jam on toast overlay a “West Coast” garrigue of twisted Pacific Madrone trees roasting in the summer sun on the slope of Mt. Tamalpais. Our marriage of Syrah, Petite Sirah and Mourvèdre is harmoniously elegant, yet naturally full-bodied, with black fruits mingling with Peet’s Coffee beans, toasted almonds, and even a peppery spice over a hint of Grand Marnier. A glorious Morning bun dusted with cinnamon and a reprise of Boysenberry with molasses finishes our first vintage perfectly. 99 cases.
