Tasting Notes
Savory spices emanate from the glass releasing aromas of baked blueberry, grilled plum, sweet paprika and star anise. A buoyant acidity rides alongside polished tannin, seamlessly complimenting rich elements of stewed blackberry, cherry cola reduction, warm mocha and English toffee. Tiers of pink peppercorn, cracked caraway seed and roasted vanilla bean persist. 

Winemaking
After hand-picking in early October, the fruit was destemmed and fermented in small tanks, with regular pumpovers to aid extraction. In order to let the varietal fruit shine through, the wine was aged 14 months in neutral oak barrels with 100% being French Oak. Following this mantra further, the wine was left unblended in order to let the Mourvèdre speak as a pure, 100% varietal wine.

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 HuerHuero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.
