This cabernet syrah blend hails from the hot Paso Robles region. It's a bit understated but I like it for that – I...

Probably the tightest I have ver tasted. Fruit is fresh, oak is judicious and what I like most, tannins are ripe yet...

Ultra-ripe, rasined, jammy fruit, with a sweet fruit impression on the palate; 15% alcohol stings the tongue....

A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Syrah and high 15% alc/vol. Dark fruits and sweet vanillan aromas. Full bodied with grippy tannins and very good acidity. More dark fruits, black cherry and oak on the palate with hints of mocha. Has a long finish. Drinking well now, but can be enjoyed over the next 5 years. Tasted Feb/2013.

Description: Medium to medium+ ruby in colour with medium+ intensity.

Positives: You’re getting true value for your money in this wine. A delicious wine featuring oak, black cherry, plums, anise, black and white pepper, turmeric, graphite, pipe tobacco and sage. Medium body with medium+ tannins, good acidity and a long length.

Negatives: A little heat from the 15% alcohol.

Interesting Points: 1. Treana is Latin meaning the 3 elements of water, sun & soil. 2. I like the early Californian Spanish American label, and what’s interesting Méliza reports that the British aren’t too fancy about it. 3. In Vintages now.

Drink now or over the next 5 years on its own or pair it with a T-bone steak, medium rare.

Score: 9/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5+/20

Out of 5 Stars I rated this wine: 4
