Baileyana Tierraslo 2014 Pinot Noir and Wasted Youth's 2012 Toasted 

Sometimes I like to don a cowboy hat and order a glass of pinot noir at a restaurant using the pronunciation “peanut nee-or.” Why? It’s fun; it makes my friends laugh. Wine should be fun. With flavors of ripe cherry, bright raspberry, and rich spice, this true Edna Valley “peanut” was born to be the party. Yeehaw!

Although I don’t recommend getting toasted to the point of insanity (remember what happened last St. Fratty’s Day?), I do recommend overindulging in this slyly “toasted” Paso Robles blend of cabernet franc, malbec, carmenere, petit verdot, and cabernet sauvignon. Created by local winemaker Ryan Horn with the credo: “work hard, play hard,” this dark, black cherry-tinged beast is not for polite sipping. You should, and will, get toasty. Just like the premium wine barrels it was aged in.
