Pas de Nom, meaning “no name” in French, is intended as a self-effacing moniker for the winery's top cuvée. A barrel-selection, it's front-loaded with big cherry-pie fruit flavors. The mouthfeel is light and buttery, with a pleasing lick of caramel, while the tannins have some muscle and a hint of stem. This young, powerful wine should drink best 2018–2025.
