Winemaker's Notes:

A complex, layered wine in the tradition of the classic Bordeaux, the fruity aromas of ripe blackberry and cassis mingle with cedar, tobacco leaf spiciness and the anise typical of Paso Robles Cabernets. The taste has fruity flavors and a long, supple finish of chocolate and tar. Serve at cellar temperature with grilled steak or with strawberries dipped in chocolate fondue.

About EOS Estate Winery:

Originally named for the Goddess of the Dawn in ancient Greek mythology, EOS Estate Winery uses state-of-the-art, eco-friendly technology to craft our wine offerings. Visit the spacious hospitality center, in the heart of Paso Robles wine country.
EOS was originally built and owned by the Arciero family, who are still one of the largest wine-grape growers in the appellation. The winery opened in 1985, and was modeled after the monastery of Monte Cassino in Italy, near the Arciero family’s hometown. In October 2010, the winery was acquired by Foley Family Wines, a family run organization.
Since their introduction, EOS wines have consistently been recognized for outstanding quality. The 1997 EOS Zinfandel was named “Best Zinfandel of California” and the 1997 EOS Petite Sirah “Best Wine of the Appellation” by the prestigious 2000 California State Fair Wine Competition.
