The 2020 Serial Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon stands out with deep color and aromas. Wild, red and black berries, sweet herbs and cedar on the nose intensify on the palate with Chambord, chocolate nib, mocha and licorice flavors. Savory notes of black pepper and cigar balance the richness of the fruit and accentuate a long back-palate finish. Smooth and supple, the tannins are velvety with medium plus body.
Proving that “syrah loves a view”, the intensity in this wine comes from Willow Creek’s dramatic elevations. Boysenberry. huckleberry and blackberry flavors are balanced with savory spice notes. Structured with fine-grain tannins and satisfying long finish.

Introducing the first-ever vineyard designate from our estate Deseo Vineyard in the Estrella District—an artful blend of Tempranillo (59%) and Syrah (41%) grown exclusively for rosé production. A light Provençale-style hue foretells aromas of rose petal, white cherry, melon rind and tarragon. The mouthfeel is bright, clean and centered with flavors of watermelon, blood orange and just-ripe raspberry. Luscious mid-palate depth progresses into the finish with refreshing hints of sea spray and lavender. Directly pressed for cold fermentation and aging in stainless
The 2019 Serial Adelaida District Cabernet Sauvignon is a substantial expression of this noble varietal. Dark ruby hues signal the intense black currant and black cherry aromas tinged with leather and tobacco. Flavors of cassis, fig and blackberry compote with hints of dark chocolate and graphite are supported with velvety tannins. A powerful wine that more than delivers on the expectations of an exceptional vintage in Paso Robles.
