    Moving to the 2013s, these are up there with the creme de la creme from Paso Robles. The 2013 Authenticity Proprietary Red (82% Syrah and 18% Mourvedre) is 100% Paderewski Vineyard and saw 57% whole cluster before spending 17 months in just over 50% new French oak barrels and puncheons. Its deep ruby/purple, opaque color is followed by rockin' notes of smoked meats, currants, cracked pepper and chalky minerality. Big, rich and layered on the palate, with a seamless texture and building structure, it's nevertheless already hard to resist. It should keep for a decade, but I see no need to hold off either.
