Wine Details

  • Origin

    Paso Robles, Adelaida District

This is our debut Cabernet release from our Gean Vineyard in Paso Robles. Thanks to a "Miracle March," the 2018 Paso Robles growing season reached normal rainfall levels. A stretch of warm weather in May assured a good fruit set. Beginning in July, we saw an unprecedented 46-day heat spell. This effectively delayed ripening as the vines shuttered to conserve moisture in lieu of opening-up to photosynthesize. We hand-picked and berry-sorted the Cabernet Sauvignon from Gean on October 27. The wine was cellared for 18 months in French oak Bordeaux-style cooperage. Winemaker Brenden Wood’s notes: “Aromas of black currant, raspberry, and fresh-picked plum are accentuated by peppercorn, nutmeg, and warm holiday spices. Fine chewy tannins slowly emerge from the supple palate, leaving a long finish of anise, cocoa dust, crème de cassis, and clove.
