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.
Violet and red, but slightly transparent, this is a luscious red wine to lust after. This is an intense wine that is rich and complex with tannic characteristics. It would pair perfectly with a beef or vegetable stew.
The term CV refers to the original vineyard holdings on our estate, Continental Vineyards, and this very limited wine is only produced in exceptional vintage years.
The wine is deep garnet in color with the aromas dominated by masses of fruit. Floral on the nose, red fruits with vanilla oak and a hint of spice, and a delicious lingering caramel taste to finish. It’s a beautifully balanced red that pairs wonderfully with pasta and a rich sauce.
Fully opaque, but filled with violets and deep ruby reds, this 2016 Merlot ferments for 20 months in medium toasted barrels made from new French oak heads and American oak staves.
Aromas of vanilla, cinnamon, coffee, and blackberry fruit, with a velvety tannic mouthfeel, this wine hints at dark chocolate, pepper, and berry notes.
This wine has smoky and dark fruit aromas with a gentle low- tannic mouthfeel and soft finish, highlighting on notes of cherry, coffee, and chocolate. Pair with meats like fried bacon or roast pork with a blackberry glaze.
As Broken Earth’s first Tannat vintage, prepare to be blown away. You may even find a new favorite varietal! Tannat has become a special and rare find here on the Central Coast, and highly coveted for most cellars.
Complex and velvety in texture, with the perfect balance of acid and tannin. Red berry flavors, with a touch of earth & spice.
Pair with Spanish style dishes (paella, tapas, chorizo) and other strongly flavored foods.
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.
