About This Wine:
The color of this wine is our darkest of this vintage, an omen of the dark berry, plum and blueberry to be discovered. This well extracted wine also exhibits vanilla bean, black licorice and cherry as well. This is a full-bodied wine with firm tannins and a long finish.

Tasting Notes:

Blueberry, baked cherries explode out of the glass and are complemented subtle aromas of chocolate, mint, fennel and cardamom. Full bodied, this well balanced wine hits the palate with flavors of jammy red currant, mulberry, and spice surrounded by velvety rich tannins that lead into a robust finish with good grip.

Vineyard Notes:

Our grapes are sourced from our estate vineyards in Paso Robles. Cooling breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean contribute foggy mornings and lower summer temperatures, which produces exceptional, expressive fruit.

Production Notes:

The 2012 vintage began as normal with cold winter months followed by a warm spring. The summer months were hot with just enough cool spikes to allow for extended hang time thus producing grapes of utmost maturity, outstanding quality, and rich concentrated flavors.

Winemaker Notes:

The grapes were handpicked early in the morning and gently de-stemmed into both closed topped stainless steel fermentation vessels as well as small open top fermenters. After eighteen days of fermentation, the must was gently pressed and aged in oak for 24 months.

Serve Best With:

Pair with roast lamb or venison.
