2011 Broken Earth CdR

2011 Broken Earth CdR

PASO ROBLES, as a region, is unique in that it has the ability to ripen varieties across a broader spectrum than almost any other region. For example, it excels in varietals from both the Bordeaux and Rhone regions of France. This CdR is our expression of blends from the famous region of the Rhone Valley in France. CdR is a blend of four varieties: Petite Sirah (56%), Syrah (21%), Grenache Noir (20%) and Viognier (3%). Viognier is, of course, a white variety but the grapes are co-fermented with Syrah to greatly enhance texture and mouth-feel in the wine. Each of these varieties has its own personality and contributes to differing parts of the wine. Petite Sirah offers a perfumed aroma as well as magnificent colour, red berry fruit and nice tannins, while Syrah adds a spicy and textural character. Grenache adds the lifted strawberry notes and gives a generous warmth on the palate, with the tiny percentage of Viognier further enhancing the aroma and back palate.

The wine is deep garnet in colour with the aromas dominated by masses of fruit. It is a wine that will appeal to many, even those with a preference for whites. The texture of the wine has a ‘white wine’ feel to it but presents with all the complexity of a beautifully balanced red.

I love this wine. Is soft on the palette but very flavorful and fruit forward. Note: should be chilled to get the best flavor.
