BroDeux has always been a blend a different Bordeaux varietals. Our goal has been to make a wine that expresses the  complexity of a blend as is generally done in Bordeaux versus straight Cabernet or Merlot, of which there are many kosher  single varietal bottlings. In the past we have relied heavily on Happy Canyon fruit, which is known as a Bordeaux varietal  region that expresses more Bordelaise personality than say, Napa. For 2016 we ventured to Paso Robles and the Santa Ynez  Valley. With the Adelaida district producing Bordeaux varietal wines that rival Napa, like Daou and Justin, we felt like we  should give this Central Coast region more focus in our Bordeaux program. The fruit from Paso Robles was counterintuitively  very nuanced and Bordelaise versus the Cabernet from Great Oaks which while it displayed intense capsicum varietal  characteristics was dense, ripe and opulent.

New Release TN’s:

Date Tasted: Dec. 2018

Nose: Classic Bordelaise notes, rosemary, perhaps a hint of Brettanomyces. Very pretty. Damson plums, hops. With air,  leather, marzipan, mint and flint emerge

Mouth: Balanced attack of acidity and sweetness. Watermelon and plums. Capsicum, rosemary. Perfectly integrated chalky  tannin. Perfect toasty oak notes. Medium to full body, almost Bordeaux level austere and 13.7% alcohol makes this a versatile  wine.

Additional Notes:  – We found this wine more enjoyable in a Bordeaux shaped glass

– Decanting is advised but tasting great straight away.

– Pair with herbed rib roast and root vegetables.

Drink now through 2030
