2015 Brecon Albarino

One of our signature wines. The previous vintage achieving semi-cult status in 2015 scoring 96pts twice in two days. These wonderfully crisp yet aromatic food wines have their homeland in the plateaus of Northern Spain where the best examples, like Brecon’s, come from within just 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 2015 we deftly melded in just 10% Albarino from the Jack Ranch to ensure the varietally correct citrine characters were suitably enhanced.

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 Conviction Grenache Blanc Viogner

Best of both worlds in a glass!. Here you get the crisp refreshing approachability of a super premium Grenache Blanc deftly melded with a pair of super aromatic sundrenched Viogniers. In essence Adelaida Viognier without an accompanying cloying oiliness. In time expect stone fruit flavors to dominate, such as nectarines and peaches, while clean citrus characters currently shine through. Wonderfully layered aromatics, superb color and a very intriguing palate. It's the consummate al fresco food wine.

2015 Brecon Forty-Two (Red Rhone Blend)

Inspired by the “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.” A wine with the answer to the ultimate question, life, the universe and everything!  Spoiler Alert!  In our third episode (read Vintage) Brecon moves away from whole cluster fermentation (Stems not quite spicy enough in 2015). Then Mourvedre, 47.3%, steals the lead role from Syrah, 42.2%, and for the first time we see Grenache Rouge 3% join Petite Sirah 7.5% in the complex sub-plot. The whole installment is almost entirely set in Calcareous Hilltops of the stunning Adelaida district 88.6%. Surely must be a NY Times best seller!

2015 Brecon Grenache

100% from the iconic Glenrose Vineyard. In other words it’s one of those sought after single vineyard offerings. Now, before you ask, there is absolutely no Syrah in there.  It’s so rich that we will of course forgive you in thinking there was. However the actual varietal percentages are 77.2% Grenache, 22.8% Mourvedre.

2015 Brecon Meritage

In a true Meritage. No one varietal should eclipse another. (Groan, suppose can only get away with writing the eclipse descriptor on 8/21/17. Ed). Rather the integration should be seamless, you identify different nuances in every sip and are ultimately left pondering the exact varietal makeup of the blend. In this case 40.66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32.17% Petit Verdot, 13.59% Malbec and 13.58% Cabernet Franc produce a medley of dark forest fruits, super smooth yet complex tannins and great balancing acidity.

2015 Brecon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

“Stock up and ferret away”! (Yes, it's an English-ism) as any self respecting small white weasel, that can run up your trouser leg, can tell you. “Why”? I can hear you ask. Well, a little dicky-bird let slip that there will be no Brecon Reserve Cab in 2016. This is indeed a good sign;  it shows that Brecon is committed to only releasing reserve offerings when the vintage is truly exceptional. However, like any good prepper, make sure you have enough squirreled away!

2015 Brecon Reserve Petite Sirah

Just a morsel, a dash, a pinch, or a drop in the bucket or, as a dinky di Australian would say, we made absolutely “Bugger All” (just seven barrels!); it’s quintessentially the dog’s bollocks (in the “when it comes to Italian opera, Pavarotti is the dog's bollocks” sense of the word.). P.S. The B word is apparently not in the US dictionary so perhaps we can get away with it here. The sex pistols did!

2015 Brecon Syrah Adelaida

Our most concentrated, structured Syrah yet. Signature smooth mouthfeel and opulent fruit immediately jump to mind. However somehow hovering just below the surface, this year's addition, of what is really a heritage varietal (Tannat), takes it to an all together chunkier level. Awards say it all.

2015 Brecon Tannat

Paso Roblians are just coming to the conclusion they may well be sitting on one of those rarest or rare locations that, like Madarain and Southern Uruguay, make truly world class Tannat. Brecon’s 2015 offering is an unashamed beast.  Like many traditional Tannat’s it could age gracefully for twenty five years!
