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.
This Grenache pairs best with a juicy prime rib, a side of steamed artichoke with warm butter, some boneless spare ribs, or a pasta with a rich white sauce. This wine matures beautifully with age, so store some bottles for your cellar and a few for enjoying for now.
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 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.
