The aroma is bright and alluring, with a suggestion of blueberries and raspberries freshly picked from a nearby patch of wild flowers. A soft entry bursts with flavors of juicy brambleberry, hints of white chocolate and a touch of oak spice on the smooth finish.
The Central Coast saw a vintage with an early harvest and low yields, providing concentrated full flavors. This blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre was sourced from the warm hills of Paso Robles to the cool peaks of the Santa Barbara Highlands; nearly the entire length of the Central Coast AVA. With a hefty dose of cool climate Grenache this wine is focused on bright fruit. While aged in neutral oak, the wine is still kissed with a touch of oak spice to round out the palate.
A wine that will pair well with a variety of dishes including chilerubbed flank steak with white polenta, stuffed mushrooms, or lamb shanks braised in red wine.
