The 2020 growing season in the Central Coast started with below average rainfall, causing supplemental irrigation to be applied when the vines started to awaken. Mild temperatures during veraison were perfect for developing full canopies and aiding fruit set with consistently small berry size. The late summer season had no heat spikes and allowed for gradual sugar accumulation and excellent flavor development.

Merlot and Petite Sirah are sourced from the Arroyo Seco AVA, a temperate growing region that fosters great acidity and intense structure development. A portion of Petite Sirah and Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend comes from family vineyards of our partner growers in San Antonio Valley which produces grapes with thick dark skins that give beautiful deep color to the wine. The Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles contributes vibrant black cherry flavors and a supple, plush mouthfeel. A small addition of Malbec from Santa Lucia Highlands lends graceful and lifted aromatics to the blend.
