It’s their 2011 blend of 67 percent syrah, 24 percent merlot and 9 percent males at a sweet price of $8.
This wine celebrates the Pacific Coast and the grapes sourced from Monterey and San Benito counties, Paso Robles and southern valleys. The cool 210 growing season allowed the fruit for this selection to develop ideal acidity and sugar levels.
The grapes were harvested at night. Following fermentation winemakers kept the wine on the skins 12 more days to soften the tannins and develop more complex flavors. The wine was aged for 10 months in American and French oak to add toasty notes.
The wine is a deep garnet in the glass and fresh, young aromas of ripe strawberries. Cascades of red raspberry and red plum and a hint of chocolate embrace the palate and a surprise finish of cinnamon and baking spices add more excitement.
This is a food friendly blend that pairs with any food you envision. Pour this with beef tacos, grilled burgers with avocado or chocolate iced cookies.
