Chronic Cellars Paso Robles 'Dead Nuts' 2012 Red Wine

Chronic Cellars Paso Robles 'Dead Nuts' 2012 Red Wine, $20.39-$23.99, 91 points, poured core black grading an opaque purple/red toward the broad bleeding clear wine ring and long lethargic legs.
Aromas of earthy black fruit, sea breezes, nuanced floral notes, and fresh tanned leather were excellent.
Full-bodied with sufficient acids and tannins to support its stupendous weight.
A great gestalt of flavors reflective of the aromas trailed deep into the long finish marked by flavors of plum, fig, tobacco, and a grand 15% alcohol inspirited spiciness.
A very dense wine quite capable of pairing well with our Papa Gino's pepperoni pizza.
The very interesting varietals were 63% Zinfandel, 15% Tempranillo, 14% Syrah, 6% Petite Sirah, 2% Tannat.

  1. Hard to imagine that a wine with such a weird label would be so good.

    1. VG: I've had a few Chronic cellar's wines, and I've loved them all! I don't see that many offered here in NH, but it looks like they have quite a few, and many devotees as well!
