Niner Twisted Spur Paso Robles 2009 Red Wine, $15.29-$37.99, 89 points, appeared opaque trending maroon at the broad clear rim with considerable draping.
Rich cedar, cloves, and blackberries on the nose were fragrant.
Near full-bodied with a lush texture, fair-plus acidity, softly supportive tannin, and round flavors of licorice, violets, plum, and blackberries were warm and inviting.
Finished fair on the trailing palate, easy spice notes, spearmint, and hints of the 14.8% alcohol.
Varietals were 44% Syrah, 30% Cabernet Franc, 23% Petite Sirah, 3% Carmenere.
