Villa Creek Tempranillo Blend Paso Robles Mas de Maha 2006

Member Review by thewascallywabbit:

Absolutely delicious, not as dry as some of the spanish gra/temp blends. This is a well put together wine that is easily drinkable by itself, I feel that it is fuller then a pinot noir, while not losing the fruit, and lighter & less dry then a CSM blend. It is reminiscent of the GSM blends out of Australia, but not as jammy, prob b/c of the lack of Syrah/Shiraz.

All great wine begins with a passionate farmer. The grapes of the area’s most progressive vineyards, James Berry, Denner, Ohana and Booker, currently grace the wines of Villa Creek Cellars. Per acre contracts insure that the fruit comes off the same blocks each vintage. The Cherry’s own 70 acre estate on the west side of Paso Robles boasts elevations of 1400-1800 feet, calcareous soils, south facing slopes and ample water. Grape growing conditions don’t get much better. The Cherry’s look forward to planting their first grape vines in 2010. Read less

A blend of 60% Tempranillo, 20% Mourvedre, and 20% Grenache, the 2006 Mas de Maha displays a deep ruby color in addition to a sweet perfume of red and blackberry fruit, spice, earth, licorice, and subtle toasted herb notes. This sexy, lush, ripe 2006... Robert Parker. A Proprietary Blend wine from California in USA. 2006 Villa Creek Cellars Mas de Maha 750ml
