More about this wine from Paso Robles, California
The Beckett brothers wanted to make wines that stood out and so enlisted their childhood friend Joe Kalionzes to design their labels. All their labels are designed as woodcuts, with themes featuring skulls and skeletons. Whether you love or hate the names and art, the wine holds up.

Paso Robles is known for Zinfandel, and Purple Paradise showcases the hedonistic qualities of the grape with soft tannins, rich ripe cherry and plum fruits. The other blended grapes add another level with pepper spice and leather, making this the wine that can go where other smaller wines can't - like in a glass next to BBQ ribs.
