    Winemaker Notes

    Typically briary and savory with the signature of the Santa Ynez Valley cherry and plum flavors, the wine is also unusually soft and lush with a velvety texture on the palate. Serve this wine with grilled meats, roasted red peppers and beans, or Santa Ynez style barbeque.

    Firestone Vineyard specializes in expressive high-quality wines from estate and select vineyards in the Santa Ynez Valley and Paso Robles. Long considered a destination for visitors to Santa Barbara County's wine country, Firestone produces an array of Bordeaux-influenced wines in competitively-priced categories.

    Founded in 1972 by Leonard and Brooks Firestone, Firestone Vineyard was Santa Barbara County’s first estate winery. In September 2007, Bill Foley acquired the Firestone winery and 380 vineyard acres in Los Olivos, as well as the Firestone tasting room in Paso Robles. Bill has continued the Firestone tradition in striving for the very best in vineyard management and cutting edge winemaking discipline. The vineyard focuses on optimal physiological balance in the vines yielding wines that are brightly flavored, crisp and delicious. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Syrah vineyards are located on a series of mesas that have gravelly sub-soils, ideally oriented for perfect exposure.

    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.

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
