Broadside produces wines focused on purity and true varietal expression. The winemaking favors a natural approach in that our wines are minimally handled to best express the grape, site, and vintage. 2021 vintage: Sourced from sustainably farmed, SIP certified vineyards in Paso Robles. Varietal: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec. Winemaker Notes: “: The continued lack of rain in Paso Robles, combined with a 30%-40% reduced cluster size caused by heavy winds between bloom and set, meant small, highly concentrated fruits in 2021. Maturation: A combination of 25% new French oak, 40% neutral French oak was used. Tasting notes: This wine opens with a beautifully perfumed bouquet that teases hints of violets, black cherry, and cedar. Perfectly balanced medium acidity and fine tannins provide the right support and structure to showcase the rich flavors of blackberry, hints of cola, and subtle notes of vanilla.
