Tasting Notes 
A harmonious blend of 42% Grenache, 37% Mourvèdre,16% Syrah and 5% Petite Sirah displays nuances of stewed boysenberries, dried raspberry, pipe tobacco, clove and orange zest. A balanced core provides the foundation for plum preserves, fresh olallieberry, tart cranberry and vanilla candy to dance across the palate. Complex, layered flavors glide atop soft, integrated tannins and bright acidity highlighting notes of dusted cranberry, black licorice, freshly cut spearmint and a ghost of jasmine incense.

Winemaking 
Picked throughout September and October, the grapes were fermented into 5-ton open top fermenters and pumped over multiple times per day to achieve maximum extraction. Aged for 22 months in French oak and American oak.During the last 12 months of barrel aging, the blending components were aged together in oak. During the first 10 months they were aged separately by variety.

Vineyard Notes

Vineyard Notes
The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 160-acre vineyard is planted to 11 varieties on a large terrace above the Huer Huero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
