Winemaker's Notes

63% Grenache, 22% Syrah and 15% Mourvèdre

Massoni and Big Break Vineyards in Oakley provide the Grenache for this blend. Careful attention to the vigorous Massoni Vineyard involves cluster thinning and leaf pulling. This increases the fruit concentration. Big Break Grenache is harvested from older lower yielding dry-farmed vines providing intense cherry flavors. Syrah comes from our cool climate, fog-laden Sonoma Coast vineyards. These grapes offer concentrated blueberry flavors and dark pepper. Also from Oakley, ancient vines Mourvedre, planted in sandy soil, is dry-farmed and imparts intense flavors of chocolate and cherry.

We initially created this blend as an auction lot for the Hospice du Rhone held in Paso Robles each year. Cashmere is a very flavorful, smooth wine offering big cherry, raspberry and chocolate notes with hints of cracked black pepper and plum.
