2019 Cabernet Sauvignon
Comprised of old vine Cabernet Sauvignon from the former Norman Winery now known as Brecon. These cane pruned monster trunk vines were originally planted in 1976, making them some of the oldest Cabernet still producing in Paso Robles. Low yields coupled with a moderate growing season allowed for the fruit to ripen until the very edge of November. This bears fourth a classic Cabernet profile, aged for 30 months in barrel to gracefully smooth out tannin structure. An addition of 10% Touriga National was blended at bottling to create an even more compelling wine. Extremely small production and released only to Country Club Members.
