The Tribe is a small production, non-traditional blend, differing each year, and designed to showcase the best barrels from our cellar. A challenging 2011 vintage with record April frosts and a cool summer gave us low yields and expanded our sourcing beyond the boundaries of our west Paso Robles Estate vineyards.
Five Rhône varieties make up this year’s blend with a small amount of Cabernet Franc to represent the Bordeaux family. Still exhibiting a reticent, youthful personality, the wine is strongly influenced by low yield Carignan, where it contributes grip and black fruit concentration.
