Nothing pairs better with the winter season than a bottle of bold red wine! To help warm you up on these cold winter nights, we have hand selected six of our "biggest and heartiest" reds perfect for this time of year.
The fruit for this wine is sourced from Camp 4 Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. This aromatic wine is fermented in small lots, punched down by hand up to three times daily, and then aged in 20% new French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled in April 2018.
This wine is crafted from premium Petite Sirah grapes grown at Texas Road Vineyard on the westside of Paso Robles. Petite Sirah is often used as a blending grape, but we decided to showcase it on its own. This full-bodied wine with its hallmark deep purple hue was fermented in small lots and barrel-aged for 18 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels. Bottled in April 2018.
The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve wine are sourced from Vista Serrano Vineyard in Paso Robles' Adeladia District. Meticulous farming and harvesting produced small clusters and small grapes that resulted in a beautiful wine with lots of complexity and depth. We selected the six most outstanding barrels to produce less than 150 cases of this age-worthy Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine was harvested and fermented in small lots, then barrel-aged for 18 months using a combination of French and American oak barrels.
Dark fruits and notes of white pepper abound on the nose. Hints of roasted meats, dried herbs, and mushrooms in the background. On the palate are flavors of black pepper, blackberries, cloves, mushroom. Rich and mouth-filling, with a long finish that shows off a lot of earthiness, especially black tea and Asian spices.
The fruit for this wine was grown at Camp 4 Vineyard, located in the eastern part of the Santa Ynez Valley. Owned by the Chumash Tribe, this vineyard grows primarily Rhone and select Bordeaux varietals. Carignane is a red varietal that originated in the Rhone Valley of France. This wine, made in very limited quantities, was barrel-fermented and barrel-aged using only neutral French oak barrels. Bottled in April 2018.
The grapes for this wine hail from Camp 4 Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. Counoise is typically used as a blending grape in Rhone-style red wines, but we decided to showcase it on its own. This light-bodied wine is fermented in small lots, punched down by hand up to three times daily and aged in 100% neutral French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled in April 2018.
