Smokescreen “The Chemist” Paso Robles Red Blend 2017
Our new 2017 Chemist is a unique blend of GSM, Petite Sirah & Tempranillo. The wine is still a baby but still gives a voluptuous, full-bodied, gorgeously polished mouthfeel, with ultra-fine tannin. It has beautiful Grenache fruit, lots of pepper and underbrush nuances, a great mid-palate, and a big, long finish. More nuanced and elegant than outright powerful, it’s going to evolve gracefully.
Vineyards & Winemaking
The east side of the Paso Robles AVA is warm but nights do not get as cool as the western part of Paso Robles because it does not receive the cool ocean breeze. The topography is uneven, with steep rolling hills. The varietals for The Chemist are fermented separately and blended before bottling. The Chemist was aged in French oak barrels, 20% which are new.
