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. - Jeb Dunnuck

Dark and thick in the glass, this blend of 82% Syrah and 18% Mourvèdre leads with black cherry syrup, smoked beef and dark chocolate aromas, which blossom as the wine opens. Rich and lavish on the palate, it has fine tannins that frame its blueberry, cassis and mocha flavors. It's firmly structured, with a lingering acidity.

Intense, highly perfumed blue fruit and floral pastille scents are complemented by hints of allspice and candied licorice. Velvety and focused on the palate, offering juicy boysenberry and bitter cherry flavors that take a sweeter turn as the wine opens up. Finishes impressively long and sappy, featuring lingering dark berry and floral pastille nuances, harmonious tannins and a hint of smoky minerals. -- Josh Raynolds

Wine Spectator, March 2017
Dense and gutsy, this wine takes no prisoners. Aromas of dried cherry, loamy mineral and dark Asian spice lead to powerful flavors of wild berry, licorice and smoky cracked pepper. Hands off for now. Syrah and Mourvèdre... Dense and gutsy, this wine takes no prisoners.
