TAYLOR'S PRIVATE LABEL IS HERE
Band of Blends 2014 Paso Robles Red Wine Blend, Lot #1
For our 2nd private label we turned to our favorite hunter of exceptional wines at incredible prices, The Treasure Hunter himself, Hunter Vogel. A blend of 43% Grenache, 38% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre and 9% Petite Sirah, this is a bold and spicy blockbuster you won’t believe. Hunter knew that we have loved the Moon Duck Red that he did a couple years ago with Saxum assistant winemaker Mark Adams, so he went in search of another winner from Paso Robles for the Taylor’s wine lovers and came back with this absolute stunner.
As usual, Hunter can divulge the original source (otherwise the original winery couldn’t get away with charging premium pricing for their label) but he can say that it’s from a “big name,” mailing list only winery who’s stuff normally isn’t available in NC unless you’re one of the lucky few on their list. He also says that the 2013 version of this wine under the main label got 95 points from Parker’s Wine Advocate.
Beautiful deep crimson color, offering up notes of black raspberries, cassis, hints of bacon fat, liquid violets and pepper. Full-bodied and concentrated, yet showing surprising finesse with a silky finish that has a beautiful purity of fruit with fine tannins.
Suggested Price: $50 – $60 Taylor’s Label Price: $34.99
