Castoro Cellars Whale Rock Reserve Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
Templeton Gap District
More from this Producer
Sourced from our organically certified Whale Rock Vineyard, these grapes get a lot of sunshine for full ripening and flavor development. The fruit loves the warm days and cool nights that run through the growing season. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is packed with black fruit and raspberry flavors framed by mocha nuances from both American and French oak. This broad-shouldered Cabernet Sauvignon is ready to drink now, but also has formidable aging potential.
This Merlot is sourced from our Estate certified organic vineyards that are nestled in the Templeton Gap and Paso Robles Estrella District of the Paso Robles AVA. Merlot is one of the main Bordeaux varieties and grows well in Paso Robles. This wine is pleasantly softer with depth and elegance. The fruit has dark berry and cola nuances, the vanilla oak is moderate, and the tannins are soft but offers a full body mouthfeel.
Sourced from our organically certified Zinfandel vineyards, these grapes get a lot of sunshine for full ripening and flavor development. Some Petite Sirah is incorporated into this wine to offer more structure. This Zinfandel has a full, yet round mid-palate with a pleasant lingering finish. Flavors of plum, blackberry, and spice with soft tannins.
Moscato is truly a grape where the fresh aromas are just as intense and flowery in the wine as the grapes! Drink this chilled as an aperitif or enjoy its freshness with fruit desserts or your favorite spicy foods..
Trentanove means thirty-nine in Italian and this reserve red blend celebrates thirty-nine years of Dam Fine Wine! Starting on the 10th anniversary, a tribute wine has been created every year, blending the best barrels of distinctive varietal lots together from a single vintage, to make a compelling blend. The goal is not to make a big tannic wine, nor one with long oak aging, but rather one that has "bright" flavors with sufficient depth and complexity. A wine that can stand alone or as a complement to food. Drink now and hold onto some to compare each vintage with friends.
Balena is a delicate, aromatic blend of Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Falanghina and Grenache Blanc. Balena is Italian for whale, and this blend is a nod to our organically certified Whale Rock Vineyard, in which much of the grapes are grown. Our Whale Rock Vineyard is named for this exact reason, it is studded with ancient whale fossils that date back millions of years. The 2022 Balena is pleasantly aromatic, crisp, and refreshing.
