2011 Mountain Road Reserve
The fruit for the Mountain Road Reserve grows on Adelaida Springs Ranch, located at 1,700 feet elevation only 12 miles inland from the Pacific Coast. Situated in the rugged coastal mountains west of Paso Robles, this prime vineyard site features rocky calcareous soils and southwestern exposures that lend themselves to producing stunning wines. It is here that the grapes for our award-winning Meritage, Suendero, are grown.
This special selection focuses on Cabernet Sauvignon. To achieve a style with more delicate and elegant traits, the wine has been aged for 32 months in new French oak barrels.
This complex wine showcases flavors of currants and vanilla. Firm tannins and good underlying acidity give it the capability for further development of character and finesse with proper cellar aging.
Enjoy through 2025.

- Aroma: Currants and vanilla with hints of licorice and tobacco
