2015 Brecon Cabernet Franc

When you have Paso’s oldest Cabernet Franc vineyard, there is little point in running around trying to find an alternate with greater tannin or color intensity. You would be sorely missing the point.  The old vines have way more complexity. Try closing your eyes as you imbibe! We, by default, have a duty of care to showcase the complexity emanating from these venerable old vines.

2015 Brecon Late Harvest Zinfandel

Half bottle size. White or black pepper, spice and berry jamminess. All fantastic Zinfandel descriptors. With the extra hang time of a late harvest there is a tendency for the descriptors to move to the right in the above spectrum. However not here. Brecon has deftly managed to retain the zinfandels signature pepper and spice in this luscious dessert wine. Three Zin Clones.

2016 Brecon Albarino

Brits are best known for the Barmy Army, Monty Python, Mad dogs and Englishmen. Hummmm seems to be a trend here. So it was no surprise that Brecon was initially considered Barking Mad for hanging their hats on an Albarino as one of their signature wines. After scoring 96 points twice in two days in 2015. The method to their madness has become quite clear.

Even in Portugal/Northern Spain the best examples of these wonderfully crisp yet aromatic food wines come from within a couple of miles of the coast. In California, marine fogs cool the grapes, resulting in a long ripening period, super intense flavors and aromatics. The tropical complexity/richness was so intense in 2016 we deftly melded in around 10% Albariño from other ranches to ensure the varietally correct citrine characters were suitably enhanced.

2016 Brecon Feral Underclass

Coined in 2011 by the Right Honorable British Justice Secretary during civil unrest in the UK. The term went viral. Brecon loves how it rolls off the tongue and of course imagines its wine a tad on the riotous side! It all kind of fits, as we use two varieties traditionally excluded from the nobel variety club. Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. When properly nurtured in Paso Robles they can truly be world class.  We finally put one proverbial finger up at the conventions of a class system by bottling it in our single vineyard reserve program. By the way, it’s a big structured cooler climate Petite Sirah/Zinfandel blend with bags of character and layers of hidden pepper and spice.

2016 Brecon Forty Two (Red Rhone Blend)

Perhaps you noticed Elon’s Tesla floating around in space has “Don’t Panic” Written on the steering wheel. Like our “42” this is inspired by the “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.” Making it a wine with the answer to the ultimate question, life, the universe and everything!  While I don’t think we will be launching a Brecon into space any time soon we do reach for the stars with this blend (Groan). Soft, velvety smooth, intriguing mix of flavors and a stunning length.

2016 Brecon Grenache Blanc

Wrote this in more of a “captain sensible” kind of day so here goes. The majority (~72%) of this Grenache Blanc is sourced from head trained vines. This is, in itself, somewhat unusual/special, particularly in the veritable wind tunnel of the Templeton Gap. The balance abuts Hoffman Mountain Ranch (Paso’s oldest Pinot 1964). It was a somewhat gritty wine when young, hence released post summer, but like the proverbial ugly duckling this wine has blossomed into something quite………….

2016 Brecon Zinfandel/Tannat

Our inaugural Zin/Tannat in 2014 certainly represented a path less traveled. Or, from a blending perspective, a road rarely taken. Conceived as a “one-off” for the wine club, it has proved remarkably popular and somewhat difficult to replicate. Consider this then a next generation Zin/Tannat or ZN/TN 2.0. It has a certain familiarity to the rich jammy 2014 but with better integration and a whole raft of added features. More spice from the Zin and absolutely fantastic length that lingers oh so long. Very approachable or, keeping the tech analogy, one might say plug in and play, play, play!
