Para Siempre Magnum
100% Bordeaux Style Red Blend
The varietals for this Bordeaux-style blend were grown in both estate and non-estate vineyards throughout Paso’s west side. Fermented separately, following racking, a final blend of select barrels was made and returned to a combination of French and Hungarian oak barrels for six months of additional aging prior to bottling.
Color: Deep Garnet
Aroma: A big full nose of raspberries, black currants, baking spices, and berry pie.
Palate: Juicy flavors of dark and dried cherries, with hints of orange rind, give way to a long finish with a perfect balance of tannin and acidity.

Para Siempre is a complex, five-varietal Bordeaux blend, made from very high-quality fruit. The grapes were double sorted and gently removed from their stems prior to fermentation in bins. The caps were punched down by hand three times a day throughout the ferment. Once the fermentation process was complete, the skins were gently pressed in baskets, yielding this elegant wine. After being racked to French Oak barrels, the wine was aged for 21 months.
