Winemaker’s Notes
Opulent aromas black currant, plums, and blueberry pie greet the nose. The refined yet robust palate is multi-dimensional showcasing flavors of dark berries and vanilla complemented by velveteen gripping tannins, a savory, richly dense mouthfeel and lingering finish. Opulent aromas of blackberry and cherry, accompanied by vanilla and toasted oak. The refined yet robust palate is full bodied, lush and structured with layers of black fruit and toasted oak.

“The fruit for this wine comes from four prestigious appellations of the Central Coast: Arroyo Seco for structure and backbone; San Antonio Valley for rich plum and currant flavors; Santa Lucia Highlands yields rich, opulent flavors of blackberry and spice; and Paso Robles for black cherry notes and seductively round and supple tannins. The result is a spirited, layered and luscious red blend.”

Food Suggestions: Lamb. Pairs perfectly with fettuccine carbonara, mushroom polenta, or roasted chicken with vegetables. Beef, Lamb, Veal, Poultry

    Rich and smoky on the nose, this hedonistic wine shows aromas of black currant, blackberry and milk chocolate. The palate is thick in flavors of fudge and black cherry, framed by chalky tannins and decent acidity to provide some balance. Matt Kettmann, May 2019
