      "ONX's current releases are quite delicious and complex. This rich, multi-layered blend of 63% Syrah, 21% Malbec, 11% Grenache and 5% Petite Sirah shows blackened plum, blueberry, soy, porcini mushroom and pepper notes on the nose. On the palate, blackberry, charred lamb and rosemary flavors are the story, framed by upright structure and powerful acidity."

      "This power-packed blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Malbec offers super ripe cassis, fudge, vanilla bean and burnt coffee aromas. That coffee element carries over to the lush and softly structured palate, melding with blueberry, caramel and pork fat flavors, a meaty spice note adding to the deliciousness."

Black Orchid

  • 2014

    • Wine Enthusiast 92, Editor's Choice
      "For a variety that's typically plush and jammy, this is a very savory spin. Charred fruit aromas interweave with oregano, leather and maduro cigar on the nose. Sandalwood, coffee and roast beef flavors arise on the palate, where a core of blueberry fruit is wrapped in polished tannins."

    • Wine Enthusiast 92
      "Dark purple fruit is upstaged by the strong umami character on the nose of this blend of 41% Syrah, 32% Mourvèdre and 27% Grenache, reminiscent of soy, shiitake mushroom and beef jerky. There is a rustic and gamy quality to the dark berry-laced palate, with meat, leather and spice qualities, lifted by a touch of licorice."

  • 2014

    • Wine Advocate 91
      "The 2014 Level 22 is a seriously good red that's made from an eclectic mix of 45% Petite Sirah, 33% Syrah, 12% Mourvedre and 10% Grenache. Full-bodied, elegant, layered and with fabulous polish to its tannin, it delivers tons of richness in its cassis, tobacco leaf, olive and wild herb aromas and flavors. Aged 18-19 months in French oak puncheons, there are just under 500 cases of this beauty to go around, but it's well worth checking out."

    • Wine Advocate 91
      "Another beauty is the 2014 Mad Crush. It's a perfumed, Grenache-dominated blend (there's 19% Tempranillo, 18% Malbec and smaller amounts of Mourvedre and Zinfandel) that exhibits classic notes of kirsch, truffle, olives, spice and sweet black cherries on the nose. Textured, pure, layered and downright sexy, it's a joy to drink, and I see no need to delay gratification either."

    • Vinous 91
      "An outstanding wine from winemaker Brian Brown, the 2013 Praetorian is an interesting blend of 61% Tempranillo, 23% Malbec, 14% Mourvedre and the rest Alicante Bouschet. Aged 17 months in French oak, it's loaded with notions of spice, cedar plank, mint and black raspberry and sweet cassis fruit. Pure, balanced, with fine tannin and medium to full-bodied richness, drink it over the coming 7-8 years, although it might last longer."

Brash

  • 2014

    • Wine Advocate 90
      "Offering more spice, toasty notes, cigar wrapper and black raspberry-style fruit, the 2014 Brash (47% Zinfandel, 19% Malbec, 17% Petite Sirah and the rest Syrah) is an outstanding blend that has a sexy, full-bodied, spice-driven and layered style that's hard to resist. Drink it over the coming 4-6 years or so. Winemaker Brian Brown makes a huge number of eclectic blends from Paso Robles, with incredible success. "
