This vineyard lies in the southern reaches of Paso Robles, where the Pacific influence and warmer inland temperatures meet to create varied microclimates to mature an unusual collection of grapes. The soils vary as well, from volcanic rock to a bed of fossilized oyster shells. This wine blends syrah grown in sedimentary soils with malbec and petit verdot grown in shale and sandstone. It shows the coastal cool in its refreshing, balanced ripeness, a lithe and healthy feel to the fruit. The syrah and petite come together with gamey meatiness, the tannins supple and stony at once. An elegant Paso Robles red with a clean, open line of flavor, this is ready for any meats off the grill.
