The 2013 Intrepid is 100% Syrah and was raised 20 months in 60% new barrels. It sports a deep ruby color to go with savory, mineral and smoky notes of wild herbs, toasted spice, chocolate and ample dark fruits. It carries its 15.5% alcohol beautifully and is full-bodied, deep, rich and layered, with an awesome texture. These latest releases from Law Estate Wines, which are made by the incredibly talented Scott Hawley, are jaw dropping good, and easily the greatest wines to come from this new estate. The future looks very bright indeed. (JD)
Dark purple. Black and blue fruits, licorice pastille, potpourri, olive and smoky oak on the exotically perfumed nose. Fleshy and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated but lithe cassis, blueberry and spicecake flavors and a strong suggestion of candied flowers. This wine is channeling the northern Rhône big-time. Shows superb energy as well as depth, finishing sweet, smoky and extremely long, with harmonious tannins and lingering spiciness. Always among the richest wines that I taste from Paso Robles, or from anywhere, frankly, during my annual tastings, this year’s lineup definitely didn’t break that trend. Owners Susie and Don Law and winemaker Scott Hawley make unapologetically extroverted, even flamboyant (but vibrant) wines from the Law’s densely planted 57 acre, limestone-rich vineyard, which sits high atop Peachy Canyon and surrounds their state-of-the-art, custom-built, gravity-fed winery. Exposure to cooling ocean winds along with the influence limestone-rich soils and wide diurnal shifts give this high-altitude site the ability to produce wines that are both massive and elegant. These wines never fail to make an impression. (JR)
