TN - 2009 Paul Lato Syrah Il Padrino Bien Nacido Vineyard

A very powerful, pedal-to-the-medal glass (yeah, I said that right). Midnight dark yet bright. Lush in the glass. Multi-dimensional and many facets like a diamond. Vio is a tremendous addition and provides supple balance. This is an E Ticket ride that should not be missed - really. 96 points

Exactly why I love Lato Syrahs! Unfortunately the '09 Il Padrino (and Larner Cinematique) sold out before I even saw the email back in 2011 as there were only 3 barrels made of each. Glad to see that Paul has ramped up production to 5 barrels these days, but still miniscule by most standards. Truly special wines. Thanks for sharing the note!

Cheers,

Steve
