Scott Hawley, winemaker at famed Torrin (many 95-98 point rated wines) is the skipper at the helm of Law Estate in Paso Robles. 80% of the estate is planted to Syrah and Grenache, while the rest of the property consists of Mourvedre, Petit Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon Tempranillo and Carignane. This winery is doing amazingly well, so get on board now before this becomes the next Sine Qua None (that would mean “None” for you if you don’t bite now).
Vinous 95 Points: “Sagacious, as complex as the dirt it’s grown in, channels southern Rhone vibes and a romantic Old World-like structure. More than ten blocks of varying Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre clones are used to capture the vineyard’s individuality. Mourvèdre is the obvious key player, conveying notes of savory charcuterie and dried herbs. The Grenache’s pop of bright acidity and the Syrah’s pepper notes create an incredibly round structure. With only 28% new French oak in barrel, foudre and puncheon, Sagacious is significantly advanced in its fruit profile.”
