Law Estate Audacious 2020, meticulously crafted by winemaker Philipp Pfunder at Law Estate Wines, is a remarkable representation of the winery’s commitment to creating audacious wines that reflect the unique terroir of Paso Robles. This blend, comprising 41% Grenache, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Syrah, is a testament to the art of winemaking, harmonizing different varietals into a cohesive and stunning wine.

The 2020 Audacious presents a striking deep cherry red and magenta core, indicative of its vibrant nature. On the nose, this wine unfolds with delicate aromas of red fruits, notably currant and strawberry. These are beautifully complemented by the structured notes of graphite, cassis, and blackberry, a generous contribution from the Cabernet Sauvignon in the blend. The integration of French oak in the winemaking process lends an opulent and full texture to the wine, enhancing the mouthfeel without overpowering the other elements.

In terms of flavor, the Audacious wine combines the lovely floral aromatics of Grenache with the savory elegance of Cabernet, creating a palate that is both accessible and complex. The wine is characterized by a seamless structure and a mouthfeel that speaks to the expert craftsmanship behind its creation. While it is approachable now, it is also a wine that will evolve gracefully, promising enhanced enjoyment with mid-term cellaring of around 4-6 years from release.

Critical acclaim for the Law Estate Audacious 2020 underscores its exceptional quality. Awarded 96 points by Wine Advocate, 95 points by Mel Shah, the wine is noted for its medium ruby color, lush aromas of blueberry, red and black cherries, cigar box, cinnamon stick, and a hint of powdered sugar. On the palate, it offers vibrant acidity, superfine chalky tannins, concentrated spicy fruits, and a long, layered finish. Jeb Dunnuck gave it 94 points, praising its ruby/plum hue, beautiful bouquet of savory black cherries, loamy earth, chalky minerality, and subtle peppery herb nuances. It’s celebrated for being balanced and medium to full-bodied, with a beautiful texture and outstanding length.
