Unfiltered Wine Club May 2024:

"Next we’re moving on to reds with Paco’s “El Cachito,” a Cinsault/Pais blend from a nearby vineyard to his Corinto plantings. All of Paco’s vines are non-irrigated, plowed by hand, and organically and sustainably farmed. The steep terrain enables the vines to grow deep roots and produce complex, balanced wines that are        expressive and mineral-driven. El Cachito is light in body with notes of cinnamon and nutmeg with layers of cherry, smoked meat, and fine-ground black pepper. It has great structure for being so light, and a little chill (like 30-40 minutes in the fridge) makes this wine sing. It pairs excellently with steak and chimichurri; I tried it with grilled chicken tacos that I served with an avocado cilantro sauce. It was delicious together, and the wine was dangerously easy-drinking."
