2007 Reserve Red - 92 Pts (Sommelier Company) 91 Pts (Wine Enthusiast)

25.00

The 2007 Volatus Reserve Red is a big blend of Paso Robles goodness; Malbec and Syrah have formed the core of our wine since 2004 and show great together in the 2007. 

Stare into the abyss of the 2007 and you will find a dark, almost black, garnet with a gorgeous ruby rim variation.  The nose initially is cedar and spice but soon opens into red and black fruit along with cola, anise, and butterscotch. The wine displays a great body from the medium plus acid and well integrated tannins. Earth, oak, and spice elements are noticed first but as the wine opens black fruit arrives followed by cherry and ripe raspberry. The 2007 finish is long, silky, and very tasty.

We like this wine on its own or paired with beef, elk, lamb or other rich meat.

92 Points - The Sommelier Company

This wine is warm, velvety and voluptuous. With a slightly sweet nose and a rich array of powerful flavors from beginning to end, it is quintessential Paso Robles. The intensity is not over-the-top; it is right at the top, and very enjoyable. Though the style can be enjoyed on its own, ample acidity and a lively bouquet of herbs make it a good choice with food—ideally grilled meats and green vegetables.

Fans of fruit will enjoy it especially; others may enjoy spice, tea and oak notes. For its age the wine is surprisingly youthful and quick to open up. Because of its age, the flavors and structural components are well integrated. The aromas can be fleeting in the glass, but each new pour reveals new facets, peaking in the bottle at thirty minutes and settling down after forty-five minutes to an hour.

Lush aromas of black cherry pie, mint, graphite, fudge and vanilla bean show on the nose of this aged blend of Syrah and Malbec by former Navy pilot Hal “Bull” Schmitt. The palate is powered by garden herbs, from thyme to oregano and marjoram, as well as smoked meats and blackberry jam.
