Dueling Pistols Paso Robles Red Blend 2016

To create a blend with 50% Petite Sirah is very unique since it is a varietal with one of the smallest planted acres worldwide, and because its tannic structure is so intense. In our blend, the Cabernet Sauvignon actually tames the tannins of the Petite Sirah to bring the blend into balance. The ageing does the rest to develop the wine into a rich, silky masterpiece. Jammy entrance with a dense midpalate wrapped around a core of soft tannins. The finish is long and lingering.
