Vasco Urbano Wine Company GSM Passport Series Central Coast 2015
Rated by Wineislife on July 22, 2018

Rating 33

PnP, then decanted Deep garnet color. Fragrant nose....rich black fruits....cinnamon....a touch of alc....wild black raspberry....Dr. Pepper?, seriously?, I think it is actually suggestive of dried prunes.........showing some impressive complexity for this price point! Rich full bodied entry on the palate of ripe, extracted, black fruits....the initial sensation of some sweetness quickly gives way to a dry mid palate....there is just enough rich fruit to support the mouth drying tannin in the long, dry, finish.... seems a touch aggressive right now, possibly could use a year in bottle?....or at least 6 months to settle down....after 2 hours plus airing and it is more settled......still......perhaps not the most refined wine on the palate....excellent nose however....excellent QPR....should I buy again?...hmm?

Deep garnet color, rim to core Very rich, distinct, nose of black raspberry fruit....ripe black fruits....some vanilla wood....just a hint of the ABV Lush, rich, full bodied entry on the palate of black fruits....ripe and concentrated....nice crisp acidity....balanced!....just off dry in character....perfect for this wine....a dry mid palate!....more rich black fruits....followed by a nice dry fruit driven finish Not a complex wine but one that delivers a lot of pleasure....rich, lush, ripe, big....yet it has the acidity and wood/tannin to balance this out....just delicious! Excellent QPR and I would buy again.

Beautiful straw yellow color Distinct mineral nose....wet stones!!! (this blows off somewhat, but still, wow)......rich, fragrant, ripe fruit.....green apple......vanilla/oak......white melon.....pineapple!.....very complex and very enjoyable!!!......perfume like, lingering fruit.....wow!....the nose on this wine is just...Nuts! Rather lush full bodied entry on the palate.......ripe apple fruit....rich.....good crisp acidity.....dry mid palate....overall sense of dryness....Nice!....there is vanilla/oak here, balanced and not in your face.........tropical fruit (not citrus).....pineapple All of this carries over into the long persistent finish This structured wine is drinking well now, but will surely keep

Black cherry scented nose.......spice.....older cooperage (2nd or 3rd year wood?)..... Medium bodied entry on the palate.....black fruits.....good acidity....a pleasantly dry, black fruit driven mid palate..... Finishes nice and clean with dry black cherry fruit, and a sense or richness A very food friendly wine....had with Eggplant Parmesan and an Arugula salad....perfect!
