"Black cherries, ground herbs, cedarwood, and hints of tobacco all emerge from the 2017 Fleur De Solene, a medium-bodied red that has beautiful fruit, ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. It's complex, balanced, and shines more for its elegance and texture than outright power and richness. This cuvée is a blend of 40% Syrah, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon, 26% Grenache, from a handful of top sites on the western side of Paso Robles, that spent 16 months in 25% new French oak. It’s going to keep for at least a decade."
