A classic earthy pinot noir nose filled with fresh pomegranate, cranberry and mushroom fills the glass. Bing cherry and black truffle flavors play along with mild rounded tannins and lead to a pleasingly long finish perfect for framing with springtime meals where you want to avoid overpowering subtle fresh flavors.
The Calcareous vineyard was founded upon the idea of first and foremost growing exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon. The perfect combination of soil and climate allows our site to play to both the fruit and structural elements of the varietal, allowing us to produce one of our region’s great examples of this most noble cultivar.
Trés Violet is our Estate’s take on a traditional Rhone-style red wine. By combining the depth and richness of Syrah, spice, and leather from Mourvèdre with the bright fruit elegance of Grenache, we can produce a multifaceted yet cohesive wine. In this way, the Trés Violet is perhaps the fullest expression of our Estate.
Vin Gris, French for “Grey Wine” is a traditional name for a white wine style produced using red grapes. Bottled extremely young, this wine is always our first indicator of the quality of a vintage and is meant to be enjoyed as fresh as possible. These wines cut to the core that wine is to be simply enjoyed and shared.
Grenache, the most commonly planted red wine grape in the world, has found a home in Paso Robles as not only a key contributor to our Rhône blends but as a standout single varietal as well. Known for elegant texture, lively fresh fruit, and great balance, our Grenache is easily one of our best food pairing wines.
