    Winemaker Notes

    Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon is a yearly expression of that noble grape in Paso Robles’ sun and soils. Printers Alley is the counterpoint, enabling the winemakers’ instincts to explore thehighlights of a given vintage to create the most enjoyable blend possible. To that end, we employ the same restrained techniques in the cellar, leaving fruit at the forefront in an approachable,user-friendly style. This utilizes small lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, along with Petit Verdot to produce a youthfully fresh and easy drinking Bordeaux-inspired red.

    Broadside, Central Coast, California
    Broadside produces wines focused on purity and true varietal expression. We favor balance and simplicity, giving consumers a window to the promise of the central coast and varietal character void of manipulation. Our winemaking employs a natural approach in that our wines are minimally handled to best express the grape, site and vintage. We harvest at lower sugars, employ native fermentation and use little to no new oak to create wines of balance and finesse that make sense on the dinner table.

    California

    Red Wine

    A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

    While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

    The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, "cult" status.

    Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

    The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, Cabernet Sauvignon and remain active frontiers for newer varieties, namely Rhône and Spanish.

    The cool Anderson Valley in California’s North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

    Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
