Grapes: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 4% Petite Sirah
Grapes from sites throughout Paso Robles were harvested at optimal maturity, then de-stemmed and gently crushed into closed-top stainless steel fermenters, at warm temperatures, to fully extract color and flavor. The fermented wine then was racked to oak for aging. During the aging process the wine lots were tasted throughout and blended back together just before bottling
Ruby in color and displays aromas of lavender, cedar and raspberry fruit. Flavors of blackberries and raspberries combined with hints of savory spices coat the palate. The soft tannins and sweet oak balance lead to a long and lingering finish.
