Winemaker, Bob Cabral, has truly captured the series in this Game of Thrones wine, now for sale at the Wine of the Month Club. In this blend, Cabral crafted a robust red from premier vineyards in Paso Robles, California using eight types of red grape varietals with predominately Syrah, Tempranillo, and Petite Sirah. The 3-day cold soak before beginning the fermentation process lends the juicy fruit flavors which balances the pleasant dryness on the palate.
On the nose, the blend smells of black berries, vanilla, and cocoa. The forefront flavor to follow is of juicy fruit with hints of leather and spice. To conclude, moderate tannins are found with spice and more vanilla. Those who enjoy dramatic wines will savor this Paso Robles Red Blend with all of its twists and turns in flavor - fit for a house equally as complex, perhaps a Lannister.
