Deep ruby color. Ripe black cherry, dried Mediterranean herbs, and a hint of mint. Powerful attack of black cherry, blackberry, vanilla and espresso, leather, robust tannin, super long finish. While a treat now, this is an immense wine that will develop in your cellar until 2040 or longer.

Passing Time may seem like an obvious name for a wine brand that includes two former NFL quarterbacks as partners, but it wasn’t that easy, Marino said.
“There’s the subtle football reference. When it’s fourth down in the red zone and you’re down by six with seconds left, it’s ‘Passing Time.’ And when you’re enjoying a bottle of great wine with good friends, it’s just Passing Time. We think it’s the perfect metaphor for the wine, and we can’t wait to share it with wine lovers who share our passion for great wine.” – Dan Marino
