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 wine is rich and full-flavored with masses of dark berry fruit and abundant oak. This wine is robust and pairs best with foods of similar weight. Careful cellaring will be well rewarded.
The quite lifted fruit aromas are well supported by spicy fruit and a small percentage of new, French oak barriques.
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.
There are underlying characters of dark cherry with some green coffee bean, emulating the great Bordeaux wines of the Right Bank. This wine will look more intense than most Californian Merlots with structure of a more ‘international’ style. A fabulous food wine.
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.
Zinfandel is certainly a Californian favorite and to release one means it must meet all the expected criteria. This wine does that...and more.
