Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2005 Sticks and Stones, a blend of 62% Grenache, 14% Syrah, and the rest Mourvedre, has elegant black raspberry, sweet cherry, and blueberry notes intermixed with some pepper and spice. The wine shows a hint of earth and some distant smoky, herbal notes. It is broad, savory, and both full-bodied and elegant at the same time. This is a beauty to drink over the next 5-7 years.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Bright ruby. Explosively perfumed nose offers fresh strawberry, raspberry and rose aromas, with an exotic lashing of baking spices. Fine-grained and silky, with deep but focused red fruit flavors and Asian spices. Lots going on here. Clings impressively on the long, juicy finish. A very impressive blend.
From Robert Parker: "Matt Trevisan is one of Paso Robles’ up-and-coming stars. He’s doing everything right, and it’s good to see him planting a new estate vineyard of nearly 18 acres, building a new wine cellar, and taking full advantage of the gorgeous limestone soils on the hillsides of West Paso Robles. Trevisan has also been ahead of the curve in realizing that the finest Paso Robles wines are usually blends. Undeniably, he has demonstrated a Midas touch when it comes to assembling innovative blends. He is also the only winemaker in this region that I know of who is doing terrific work with Zinfandel, using it as the core component in some diverse as well as creative blends. His wines spend time in an assortment of different sized oak barrels, little of it new."
