While the Central Coast appellation covers a large territory, these grapes come primarily from Paso Robles and the neighboring southern portion of Monterey County. Our winemaking techniques emphasize the abundant berry fruit and rose petal perfume aromas, while keeping the palate soft and approachable. Judicious blending with Grenache and Syrah adds raspberry and peppercorn flavors, balanced by subtle toasted oak. It will pair nicely with a wide variety of foods from grilled meats to spicy Mediterranean cuisine. While drinking very well now, it will evolve nicely for up to five years in a proper cellar. Enjoy!
