I feel the need to start off this review by first apologizing to Alpasión. These wines were originally supposed to be reviewed quite awhile ago but kept being pushed back as entire months were dedicated to certain themes (International Merlot Month), wineries (Market Vineyards) and portfolios (Terlato). So, Alpasión, please accept my apologies. I am sorry.
Speaking of Market Vineyards, Alpasión’s origin story is actually quite similar. A group of friends were enjoying some wine together and started talking about how cool it would be if they would start making their own. We’ve all done this from time to time, jokingly. But the founders of Alpasión actually went ahead and followed through with it.
