2010 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 30 months in 80% new French oak barrels.
This complex wine showcases flavors of cassis and dark chocolate, rich creamy tannins, and good underlying acidity giving it the capability for further development of character and finesse with proper cellar aging.
Enjoy now through 2023.
