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 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 Mourvedre Adelaida

Would you believe the sixteen month absence of Mourvedre from the Brecon lineup has been described as the pain of unrequited love! “La douleur exquise”... The exquisite pain or the heartache of wanting something you can’t have. Indeed we skipped a vintage in 2015, as what little Mourvedre we had in went into our red Rhone blend program. Signature naturally sweet forest fruit characters, smooth but with excellent length. In fact it’s a fully ripe hilltop Mourvedre overlain with a framework of complex smoky and earthy notes found only in 1st class examples.

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!

2017 Brecon Albarino

Brecon was initially considered Barking Mad for hanging their hats on an Albarino. The wine of course is nothing but serious. Particularly after a previous vintage scored 96 points twice in two days. Aromatically it jumps from the glass with hints of elderflower and lily blossom. The palate is varietally true, being all citreen, with crisp fresh limes dominating. So refreshing. The finish is surprisingly structured with a softness and biscuity toastiness reminiscent of a good champagne.

2017 Brecon True Acacia Head Albarino

You just have to admire what Acacia wood does to this grapefruity Central Coast Albarino. It brings white peach and nectarine fruit nuances to the aromatics.  Adds additional structure/richness in the mid palate without bringing those pesky toasty or vanilla influences. Naturally, it’s amazingly seafood/salad friendly thanks to its crisp citrusy backbone.

2017 Brecon Viognier

A Viognier with one “trench” foot in each camp. Don’t get us wrong we love the crispness of a cool climate Viognier. Also, we just love the mid palate viscosity combined with tropical aromatics of a more sunblessed version. But have you ever tried the combination! Truly the best of both worlds.

The riper stone fruit flavors, think peaches and nectarines, are dictated by sun drenched blocks  high on the slopes above Adelaida road. While clean citrus characters and floral notes shine through from Paragons fog prone vineyard in the heart of Old Edna.

"The nose is a blend of red apple, pear and gardenia carried on vanilla/marzipan. The palate entry is a lush peach, vanilla and pear with an oily core of dried peach skin and banana finishing with sweet dried apricot. Drink 2018 –2023."
