troublemaker2Westside Red Troublemaker, Paso Robles, CA ($20)   A new  fire truck red label for a new wine: 53% Syrah, 37% Mourvèdre, 10% Grenache, sourced from Paso Robles, California ,and  taken from multiple vintages (2007, 2008 and 2009). The Austin Hope family has been making wines in Paso Robles since 1978 and their labels include Liberty School, Candor, Treana, Austin Hope and Westside Wines. They made Troublemaker by blending multiple vintages into a seamless whole.  Big fruit, touch of cedar, touch of tannins on the middle of the taste, with a tart, fruity finish. Raspberries, bit of brambles, chocolate on the aftertaste make this  lively and flexible wine has character and lends itself exceptionally well  with any holiday meal when you've got a lot of different and competing flavors on the table.
