This might be the best Optimus I've ever tasted. Same subtle flavor blend, same French style and sensibility. Great balance and flavor...I'd drink it with Lamb or Veal. I would say it's ready to drink now but I would love to see what happens over the next few years. I usually try not to keep Paso wines for a long period of time, however, there are exceptions and this should be one of them.


I bought a case of the 2006 Redmon Cabernet after having it at a wine tasting about 18 months ago. The 2007 was gone before I could buy any. I was very pleased with the 2008 at a tasting yesterday, for my money they are a great, affordable boutique producer that can match up with wines twice the price. This was tasted side by side with an Alpha Omega Proprietary Blend and an 09 Caymus Cab and I thought the Redmon was a much better wine and wine value.
