Your wine is the perfect introduction to Paso Robles – it's a remarkable region full of fossilized limestone soils, impeccable weather, and a long line of grape growers like us, ready to introduce its wines to a new generation.
We hope you enjoy this Paso red – a uniquely Californian spin on the rich wines of the old world. It's kicking with ripe plum, raspberry and nutmeg flavors. A real robust blend – with a rustic flair.
The 2017 Brothers Miller French Camp Vineyard Old World Blend begins with pleasing aromas of red and black cherry, spice, licorice, violet, lavender and a little vanilla. Taking a sip reveals a smooth and soft wine loaded with juicy sour cherry fruit and other flavors similar to the nose along with a hint of anise. This is a pretty nice example of Barbera from Paso Robles and with plenty of acidity it makes a great wine for Italian fare. It ends dry and quite long.
While we loved this one, it could be a bit of a surprise if you're not expecting all the sour cherry flavors. This is definitely not your typical California red blend, which is a very good thing in our opinion!
