The Reserve tier of our Estate Grown Cabernet Sauvignon is only released in years when the grapes have reached outstanding quality. We employ a very stringent selection process of vineyard blocks on which we have enhanced our growing practices. There is a further narrowing of selection during fermentation and then the final phase is individual barrel selection.
Once the cork is popped, ever so quietly of course, a myriad of dark rich fruit aromas burst from the glass. We normally recommend a few seconds of bouquet appreciation before the first sip, but for this wine, we just can’t wait. Texture and bubbles galore, with ever-lingering cherry, licorice, and red currant leave this wine a little hard to comprehend, but we know you can handle it.
The beast has been released! This one hundred percent Tannat does not hold back, and neither should you. A bold, rich varietal that is making a name for itself in California is native to Uruguay; it is the dominant grape grown in the Basque region bordering Spain and France.
Subtle in the nose, this wine begins with hints of umami characteristics (think savory, freshly baked bread) that stems from its most traditional méthode Champenoise production. With a light swirl, careful not to disturb the bubbles -- a plush wave of strawberry fruit rolls through. But don’t wait too long for that initial sip, the vivacious explosion of even more strawberries, bubbles, and texture allows a person to understand the passion that goes into the making of a sparkling wine.
Violet and red, but slightly transparent, this is a luscious red wine to lust after.
Like the coveted Rosés produced in Provence, France, this east side Paso Robles vintage showcases all the hallmarks of an internationally- styled and yet classic Rosé.
