Petite Sirah has an undeniable affinity with Paso Robles terroir resulting in wine with bold character amidst savory details. Deep velvety texture is highlighted by blueberry pie, prune, and toffee notes. Accents of fennel, brown sugar, and cinnamon along with a concentrated finish give this wine its regional flare and homespun charm.
Passage serves as a beautiful Syrah based blend between our Caverio and Portolan blends. Some of the finest Syrah, which is hand picked from our RBZ Vineyard, is the backbone to this bold blend. Grenache and Mourvèdre are added for complexity on the nose, while Petite Sirah helps build tannin. Aged for 20 months in new French and Hungarian, this wine is bottle aged for a year before its release, ensuring that it is ready to go as soon as it is in your hands! 94 points - Wine Enthusiast, December 2021
White wine varietals have always been difficult to grow in Paso Robles, but Grenache Blanc has proven time and time again it can stand up to our warmer summer temper¬atures. Grown in our estate RBZ Vineyard in the El Pomar district, we hand pick this small block, and go direct to press upon arrival at the winery. Slow, cool fermentation in stainless steel aids in preserving the fresh fruit aromas. Aged only five months in stainless steel, the Grenache Blanc is highlighted by bright acidity and fresh minerality.
On the northside of our estate RBZ Vineyard, sits a beautiful block of Grenache. We hand pick the Grenache when sugar and acid levels have reached a point that would generally line up with white grape harvesting practices. Higher acid and lower sugar help create a crisp, clean, and approachable rosé. After a quick foot stomping at the winery, we allow the juice to soak up color and flavor from the skins for about an hour before we go to the press. Fermented and aged in 100% stainless steel, we hope this is the perfect poolside rosé for beautiful summer afternoons!
Indigenous to the Rhone Valley, Roussanne grows incredibly well in our Paso Robles estate vineyard. Beautiful aromas of dried apricot and pineapple with highlights of guava and quince linger in the glass. The mouthfeel is crisp yet sizeable, with clean flavors of honeysuckle and melon, alongside light minerality.
