The fruit for the Mountain Road Reserve grows on Adelaida Springs Ranch, at an elevation of 1,700 feet and only 12 miles from the Pacific Coast. Situated in the rugged coastal mountains west of Paso Robles, this prime vineyard site features rocky calcareous soils and southwestern exposures that lend themselves to producing stunning wines. It is here that the grapes for our award-winning Suendero are also grown.
- Adelaida Springs: Cabernet Sauvignon 75%
- White Cliffs: Cabernet Sauvignon 22%
- Adelaida Springs: Petit Verdot 3%
This special selection focuses on very small lots of limited-production Cabernet Sauvignon, with a bit of Petit Verdot in the blend to enhance the structure of the finished wine.
To achieve a balanced style with a rich character and refined mouthfeel, the wine was aged for 20 months in French oak barrels before bottling unfined and unfiltered.
