Notes from the Winemaker, Tom Myers
The anniversary blend is always a fun but challenging blend to make. No small pressure to come up with a blend that represents our stylistic place in the Paso Robles AVA and, of course, it needs to be a consistent winner. Since Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon are varieties we focus on, those usually make it into the blend. Barbera, Petite Sirah and Cabernet Dorsa also were used in this vintage. Sixteen months of small oak aging are beneficial to bring the characteristics together and add complexity. The goal is to make a blend that has bright vibrant fruit, medium body, and warm complementary oak notes.
