ONX Reckoning Red 2014  - Last Bottle

ONX Reckoning Red 2014

Do you enjoy extreme sports? Well, here is your wine. Not for the faint of heart -- at all.

94 POINTS!!! Best price on earth, of course! We had such an outpouring of “OMG, do you have any more of the ONX” last time we sold this, we went back many months ago to try to get ANYTHING else they’d sell us -- and we just scored it! So if you KNOW this colossal, leviathan-sized Paso Robles Red already, just move lightning quick is all we can say!! And, well, same goes for the rest of you...will go fast.

OK -- this IS a big, stuffed, packed wine, but it’s amazingly friendly once you finish wrapping your mind around the extracted, crazy-rich wild blackberry, boysenberry, blueberry-ness of this deep, dark, concentrated Syrah blend. But, kids, we are just getting started --- there’s pretty lavish oak, incense, earth, teriyaki, pepper, smoked meat, and even a rich, luxurious Kahlua-like note. TONS going on here, a head-spinner of a bottle that is meant to make an impression. Our price should too, for a 94-pointer!! Amazing!

We won’t say more! Limited!!

"At ONX we focus on farming our crops with the understanding that the fruits of our labors will be realized in a glass of wine... your glass hopefully! There is a French term, elevage, which is applied to wine and it translates to “the educating or upbringing” of wine like parents do with their children. We like to extend that notion into the vineyard and believe that we can train the vines into producing the best possible fruit for wine production."
