Description

"Dark ruby color, showing aromas of violets, cassis, coffee with cream, roasted pepper. On the palate, black cherry, toasted bread, blackberries. medium bodied with a long finish.

The 2010 growing season in Monterey County was the coolest since 1998. Cool weather in May led to a protracted bloom and set. Many growers were finding that they had above-average crop loads until a very unusual 108-plus degree heat wave came in August, just after veraison. Riesling and Pinot Noir were hard hit with losses of 20 - 30 percent, while most other varieties were much less affected. Many grapes, especially Chardonnay, were harvested roughly 1-1.5 degrees Brix below average due to a cool September and October. Grape acidity was nicely preserved, and extended hang time has resulted in nice peach, apricot and other stone fruit flavors in the wines.

In Paso Robles, three years of drought ended with a winter of above average rainfall. With mild weather during set followed by the relatively cool year, vineyards used the available water to hang slightly more fruit than average. This was the year of the smart farmer; those growers who were able to keep their fruit/vine ratio in balance and stay ahead of mildew pressures, while accounting for the cooler year, managed to harvest high quality fruit. The winning variety for Paso Robles this year appears to be Syrah, with 25 percent more color than average, and exceptional flavors and tannin balance. October rains that hit some regions in California largely bypassed Monterey and Paso Robles, where rainfall was generally less than one-half inch. Nevertheless, an early frost hit Paso the morning of October 27, accelerating the harvest of Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourveedre." -Winery
