Barton 2014 Hot Blooded Counoise (Adelaida District)

Editors' Choice

So named because Counoise takes to long to ripen that it makes winemakers' collective blood boils, this bottling from Glenrose Vineyard is a great example of a lighter red wine from Paso Robles. Red cherry, rust, crushed gravel and dried herbs show on the nose, while the palate carries oregano, marjoram and a touch of cardamom against light red cherry and cranberry flavors. It's lively and fresh. Matt Kettmann
