2018 Brecon Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (New Relaease)

We kept those gerrymandering winemakers at arms length in 2018! This expression then is pure Brecon Vineyard with nothing yomping (it's a word) over the boundary fence to sneak into the blend. Others might claim the biggest or darkest Cabernet in Paso. We have the oldest. With that comes a dire wolf warning. This is a complex old crooner that just oozes sophistication. It will undoubtedly worm its way into your heart. Ladies, it might even satisfy your secret old man crush!

A broad spectrum of flavors that modern monotone plantings just don't have. Without the tannins of the modern clones it is soft and approachable much earlier, being more akin, in body, to a Cabernet Franc than a Greek Adonis. Only 129 c/s produced.

Production notes

Old-vine Cabernet truly needs a skilled hand. Less experienced winemakers might try to over oak or extract while missing the whole point of a perfectly balanced expression of sensuous maturity. Sure we use a little Petit Verdot as topping wine. For us it’s akin to slipping granny something to get the venerable old lady doing the fandango at her granddaughter's wedding. The older vines shine through but now have a wicked twinkle in their eye.

Brecon vineyard was the third or fourth Cabernet vineyard planted in Paso Robles. About 15 acres are still standing strong (amazing since they were planted on their own roots), whereas their slightly older brethren have long since succumbed to a rather large yellow bulldozer. We solely use grapes from the western slope for the Reserve program. For us the economics are unimportant, we have a special duty of care to elucidate the special uniqueness of old vine Cabernet planted on calcareous bedrock topped with linne calodo clay.
