Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes
The wine also shows a well bred pedigree from its best-barrel selection, and the low yields from Adelaida’s limestone soils.

Vintage Notes
2011

A rare cool summer in Paso Robles lends precision to the racy fruit profile of this claret-like wine.  A late October harvest put the fruit at Bordeaux levels of ripeness, accentuating its lifted berry aromatics and crisp juicy finish. A pleasant departure from the highly extracted licorice-like wines of the region, this year’s vintage reflects more than lower temperatures.  It benefits from the blue fruit edge of a Cabernet Franc blending partner, and its steep mountain vineyard location, combining elevation (1700 feet), sun exposure (south facing slope) and evening marine air cool-down.
