The Treasure Hunter and his pals at the Three Finger Wine Co. have a special fondness for Paso Robles, so they bottle their favorite Paso finds under the One X Spaceman label. The latest is the Moon River Cabernet Sauvignon, which Hunter says the original winery sells for $75 (but of course he can't tell us who that is).
Not only does Hunter have a great palate and a talent for finding fantastic deals, he also has a great sense of humor and write some of the best tasting notes in the business. So as usual, I'll let him take over from here:
"The Westside of Paso Robles is home to an appellation called, The Adelaida District. From this slice of heaven comes some of the densest and most lip-smacking wines on the planet. We haven’t released a new Spaceman for light-years, but this wine will make all that waiting well worth it. This wine is a Neutron Star of “hug your loved ones” and bow down to greatness.
Iridescent purples, blues, and reds flash like a raven’s wing warning the senses of what is about to be unleashed upon them. Lush and dense with aromas of black cherry, warm strawberry pie, and a Carolina smokehouse explode from the glass. The intensity and decadence of the flavors are defined mostly by baked blackberry, caramel, and spice cake but the classic black-currant, violet, espresso, and milk chocolate shine brighter than quasar 3C 273 in the constellation of Virgo as well. Look it up!
Moon River is a liquid masterpiece of Grand Opera written by a gifted winemaker using the finest tools only Mother Nature can provide."
