About the Wine

 

The Problem Child is a fascinating wine, produced from the dry farmed Heaton Ranch – one of the ‘grand crus’ of Paso Robles.

 

The Mourvèdre lengthens the palate, while Syrah adds a dense, meaty texture that cuts the acidity of the Zinfandel. Aromas and flavours of fennel and black cherry pie compliment a smooth, round mouthfeel. Aged in 500 litre puncheons of new and neutral American oak for 12 months.

Status
  • "A blend of 74% Zinfandel, 19% Mourvèdre and 7% Syrah, the 2015 Problem Child has a deep garnet-purple color and nose of blueberry preserves, dried mulberries and preserved plums with touches of baking spices, violets and raspberry leaves. Full-bodied and full-on rich and seductive, it has lovely spicy and berry preserves palate with plush tannins and a long, peppery finish."

    94+ points, Lisa Perrotti-Brown (The Wine Advocate, Sept. 2017)

     

    "Dark purple. Deeply perfumed, spice- and mineral-accented cherry liqueur, boysenberry and black currant aromas are complemented by a sexy floral nuance. Shows impressive depth as well as nerve to the sweet black and blue fruit liqueur and floral pastille flavors, which are sharpened by a jolt of juicy acidity. Supple, harmonious tannins sneak in steadily, adding focus and shape to an impressively long, mineral-laced finish."
