Tasting Notes

Dark black cherry, brambly blackberry, vanilla and cocoa aromas. Soft strawberry jam and juicy black fruit flavors merge in a complex joining of fruit flavors. Tannins are soft and rounded. Mouthfeel is rich and juivy. There's warm, toasty, vanilla laved in the finish. This wine is a reliable jack-of-all-trades, perfect to sere with cheeses, meat and red sauce based pastas, BBW, pizza, or just sip it with friends.

The Vintage

2013 provided a long, warm growing season, but a relatively mild summer for Paso Robles. Grapes vine yields were low to average, producing intense, concentrated, expressive big fruit flavors, and dense tannins.

Winemaking

Grapes were destemmed only, and sent without crushing directly to stainless steel tanks for temperature controlled. The mus cold soaked for 2 days before inoculation with yeast to begin fermentation. The new wine was pressed at a dryness and inoculated for malolactic fermentation.
