Treana Paso Robles 2008 Red Wine, $26.99-$34.99, 92 points, is like the movie Secretariat: "Big Red", though not as good as the movie (Talk about apples and oranges!). This wine still delivers a run for your money with, big complexity, richness, and surprisingly, paired very well with my rare peppered steak.
The color is deep purple, black at the core, and having a clear rim.
The aroma is an explosion of savory spice, with sweet cinnamon, pungent clove, and cedar-box rounding off the savory sage, cardamon and thyme , but not without black fruit smoothing and rounding-off this bouquet.
A smooth full body carries good acidity, layers of tannin, floral notes early palate, licorice and plum mid-palate, and finishes strong on spice and heat (15% alcohol).
This Red wine is dry. The varietals are Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah.
