Appellation: Paso Robles California:
Winemaking: Grapes are selected from estate vineyards in California and our Chalk Knoll Vineyards ranch in San Ardo within the San Lucas AVA. cool coastal climate ensures high quality fruit that ripens slowly, developing delicate but rich flavors yielding intensely aromatic wines. We blend rich Cabernet Sauvignon with soft Merlot for a balanced mouth feel while adding American, French and Hungarian oak barrels as well as stainless tanks with micro oxygenation to create a soft and approachable food friendly wine.
Tasting Notes: balance of tannin and acidity. Aromas of plum, maraschino cherry and sweet tobacco are complimented by a rich roasted coffee bean and cocoa powder finish.
