Meaning “to this” in Latin, “òc” (Hoc) pays tribute to the brothers’ native region of Languedoc-Roussillon by showcasing Carignan.
Our flagship cuvée, Origin was designed to showcase Cabernet Sauvignon’s outstanding potential here in Paso Robles. From the beginning, the Fabre brothers knew they wanted the Benom Collection to focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Sauvignon blends; thus Origin was born.
Meaning “an involuntary error” in Latin, Lapsus is a nod to the discovery of Graciano in the Paso Robles appellation. Since this varietal was originally believed to be Mourvèdre (monastrell), it was only natural to blend the two together.
An anagram of Rosé, which means “the rise” in French, L’Essor is another perfect example of the different style of wine the brothers want to bring to the broad spectrum of offerings in Paso Robles.
The second wine the brothers dreamt up for Benom, Les Deux Frères (“The Two Brothers”) was created with pleasure in mind. A combination of Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon & Tempranillo, this wine is inspired by Spain with a Paso Robles twist.
Contrast is a perfect example of what is possible in California but nearly outlawed in France: a combination of Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc.
Poetically named Muze in honor of the wine’s inspiration, Clio red blend, her Spanish roots come from the Mourvèdre known as Mataro or Monastrell in Spain. Full bodied and powerful this blend combines a classic Bordeaux style of Cabernet Sauvignon creating a showstopping wine with nuances of deep earthy structure, opulent fruit and a seamless finish. The cool climate Syrah compliments the blend by bringing beautiful freshness and a hint of spice. Muze is a mesmerizing wine with a rich, elegant body and soulful notes.
