The GSM blend 2012 Sagacious (39% Mourvedre, 35% Syrah and 26% Grenache) is a Chateauneuf du Pape look-alike with its darker fruits, cured meats, herbes de Provence and licorice-laced bouquet. A big, full-bodied, concentrated, sexy and fruit loaded effort, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years. Located in one of the warmer terroirs in the appellation, with the wines made by Scott Hawley, Law Estate fashions ripe, textured, yet always balanced wines that are a joy to drink. While 2012 was far from a slam dunk for the region, this estate has turned out a bevy of beautiful wines. However, I was surprised to see the lack of color and more open-knit style of the Grenache releases.
Opaque ruby. Ripe, deeply perfumed aromas of black and blue fruits and candied flowers, with a peppery element adding vibrancy and lift. Dense, ripe and alluringly sweet in the mouth, offering sappy, energetic blackberry and violet pastille flavors. Finishes on a spicy note, with excellent focus, an echo of juicy dark fruit, and suave tannins. One of the most exciting and ambitious wineries to emerge in Paso Robles in recent years, Law is owned by Colorado energy executive Don Law and his wife Susie and winemaking is in the hands of Scott Hawley (Torrin). The recently completed winery allowed the team to move out of their rented space at Denner and into what is among the most impressive new facilities, from both aesthetic and efficiency standpoints, that I’ve visited in years, anywhere. Wine lovers familiar with Hawley’s style won’t find any surprises here as the wines are intensely perfumed and flavored, with noteworthy power but lush, seamless texture. They offer a compelling blend of upfront, fruit-driven sex appeal and ageworthiness.
