The prodigious 2007 Esprit de Beaucastel is a blend of 44% Mourvedre, 29% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and the rest Counoise. A very great wine, very much in the mold of its French cousin, Chateau Beaucastel, the wine has a saturated ruby/purple color and a gorgeous nose of melted licorice, charcoal, blueberry, and blackberries intermixed with freshly sliced mushrooms, tree bark, and pepper. Spicy, dense, full-bodied, and extraordinarily complex, yet at the same time well-delineated and fresh, it should drink well for 10-15+ years.

Rich, dry and full-bodied, with loamy earth, dried berry, mineral, anise and black licorice flavors that run deep and persistent, layered and concentrated, ending with a long, tight finish. Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise.

Quite a surprise. I was not expecting such a pleasing array of fruit, tannin, and complexity. Ripe red fruits with some black current and cedar. The mid palate was what hit me the most as it morphed over two days. Some smokey character and maybe pepper. Lovely smooth finish that keep hanging on. I will get more of this.

A remarkable wine, the best at the Paso Robles tasting; noble bouqet, notes of manure, very long aftertastate vibrating in your mouth. Not sure for how it will survive (10+?) but the only wine of the tasting I bought as much as I could find online to explore years down the road.
