“Super Tuscan” blends originated from renegade Italian winemakers who scorned traditional blending laws in order to make their own unique wines. Our “Super Paso” is an homage to them. In 2018, our Petit Verdot, which made up half of the blend, had robust color, beautiful fruit flavors and exceptionally well-balanced tannins. Barbera’s plush and approachable profile made it a great counterbalance to the dark Petit Verdot. All four grape varietals were harvested from Bootjack Ranch and fermented individually in stainless steel tanks. The blend was composed shortly after harvest and aged together for 17 months in 40% new French Oak barrels.
