    Winemaker Notes

    20 years into my winemaking career, I am finally realizing this boyhood fantasy with the inaugural release of our new white blend, simply named... UNPLUGGED. Though I still cannot play a lick of guitar, I learned that I can compose with flavors. Think of this blend as un-amplified duo of acoustic guitars, each played by a legendary icon. Of course each variety (I mean guitarist) stands out a bit, but there is also a tremendous harmony here. The lead-solo is the Chenin Blanc…smooth and haunting…backed up by Sauvignon Blanc…bracing and racy, trying to steal the show…The result is an un-oaked, crisp, fresh, and dry harmony. We have cut the cords, so just the pure varietal and vineyard driven flavors shine through.

    E11even, Central Coast, California
    Image of winery
    This is E11even wines are produced by Andrew Murray Vineyards. With these wines, the winemaker is blending 22 years of winemaking experience with a fun, irreverent Rock n’ Roll ethic. Expect exciting & category defying blends and a very serious solo act. These are serious wines... the only thing missing is the attitude. No fuss, no pinky finger raised high, no pomp, no posers, no worrying about choosing just the right glass. This is not a tribute band only replaying someone else’s tired tunes. No, this is the new original, informed and inspired by passion and experience. Our current set list includes a full-tilt Cabernet based blend, Big Bottom, a lighter-raised-high acoustic white blend, Unplugged, and a tight-leather-pants smooth Pinot Noir. But, are the wines any good, you might ask? We know that you will think that they are immensely delicious and drinkable wines. We know that you will agree that they are one better than a ten... an E11even. Yes, these wines do go to 11!

    Central Coast

    View all wine

    The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

    Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

    While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
