While the crop was tiny due to the cool bloom in the Spring, the 2015 vintage rewarded us with beautiful, elegant fruit that had earlier flavor development than in years past.  This allowed us to pick sooner at Jada and to keep the alcohol percentages down.  The results were nuanced, textured wines more reminiscent of the Rhone Valley & Bordeaux rather than the big, fruit bombs for which Paso is typically known.  While still dense, rich, and flavorful, the 2015s are more subtle & complex than in years past and should go a long way in dispelling the myth that Paso can only produce big, fat, over-ripe wines that lack complexity, differentiation, and age-ability.
