Winemaker's Notes

Named for the famous Norseman – sailor – conqueror – and, obviously, a man with a great palate – Erik the Red.

This is a wonderful blend of fifteen, yes fifteen, count em', different varietals of grapes from the beautiful Paso Robles area of the Central Coast of California. Toad Hollow— like Erik—is not afraid to hop into the fray and make a wine that is not only big and chewy, but still has a modicum of understated elegance. WOW what a wine!

Similar to the temperament to the commanding Scandinavian explorer, this wine is not for the “faint of heart" as it is big, robust, and powerful. But when you come across a mighty meal that is up to the challenge, such as a prime rib or a rack of lamb, Erik's the Red is sure to slay any other wine in its path!

The atmosphere of Sonoma is decidedly laid back and down home country style. But in wines, they are keeping up with the...
