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.
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.
Contrast is a perfect example of what is possible in California but nearly outlawed in France: a combination of Chardonnay & Sauvignon Blanc.
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.
