This Paso blend is more delicious than the sum of its parts. It is made mainly of grape varieties from our prestigious Huerhuero Vineyard, located in the rolling hills of Paso Robles. Here, warm afternoons and cool evening breezes shepherd the grapes to perfect ripeness. The grapes were picked at cooler morning temperatures and cold soaked for two days prior to fermentation. Variable pump-over techniques were implemented during progressive stages of fermentation to enhance fruit extraction and balance out the tannin structure. The wine was then aged in both small and large format French, Eastern European and American oak barrels for 16 months in order to add complexity while enhancing a soft, velvety finish. RED4 showcases the structure of Petite Sirah, the spice and cherry qualities of Syrah, Grenache’s forward fruit, and the rustic character of Mourvèdre. This intriguing, youthful wine is your perfect dinner companion.
