‘The lost Bordeaux varietal’ thrives well here in Paso. Thirteen year old vines at Colbert Vineyards yielded about 3 tons/acre. Hand picking and quick delivery brought the fruit to the winery in perfect condition.
A saignee was made a few hours after crushing; we then moved the precious juice into neutral french oak barrels where it aged for 8 months.
A rarity with a very jammy nose, red fruits characteristics and good acids, to our knowledge it is the only carmenere rose that you’ll find in Paso Robles.
This wine is comprised of 90% Zinfandel, 5% Syrah and 5% Petite Sirah. The fruit was all hand harvested and table sorted followed by a 48 hour cold soak on the skins. The fruit was fermented for 18 days and then pressed off the skins and racked off the solids into 3 and 4 year old American oak barrels and aged for 18 months.
This wine has flavors and aromas of wild blackberry and brambly raspberry fruits, cherry, cola and leather followed with a toasty finish. Medium tannins
