Lapsus is highlighted by a vibrant ruby hue. The bouquet opens to red and blue fruit, followed by dried herbs and a touch of spice. This is an opulent wine with an elegant density, surrounded by a great structure with a mineral-driven finish. Drink over the next 8+ years.
Meaning “an involuntary error” in Latin, Lapsus is a nod to the discovery of Graciano in the Paso Robles appellation. Since this varietal was originally believed to be Mourvèdre (monastrell), it was only natural to blend the two together. Graciano’s acidity is balanced with the rich earthiness of Mourvèdre while bringing in Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of Grenache. This is an opulent wine with an elegant density, finished by a mineral-driven freshness.
