Beringer Waymaker Red 2013
Wine AdvocateThe red wines include a good value from Paso Robles, the 2013 Proprietary Red The Waymaker, a blend of 41% Syrah, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petite Sirah, 5% Malbec and the rest Grenache, Mourvèdre and Tannat. Aged 16 months in neutral wood, the wine is Beringer's Côte the Rhône-like offering, with tasty berry fruit, loamy soil undertones, pepper, meat and loads of strawberry and cherry fruit. Drink it over the next year or so.
Wine SpectatorSturdy if rather one-dimensional, with modest notes of cracked pepper, dark plum and graphite. The tannins are a bit gritty. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Tannat. Drink now through 2019. 6,473 cases made.
