" 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Margarita Vineyard, planted in 1999, and farmed sustainable. The wine spent 15 months in 10% new French oak. The Margarita Vineyard is the southernmost vineyard in Paso Robles, located closer to the town of San Luis Obispo and to the Pacific Ocean than most other vineyards in the Paso Robles appellation. It's just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean at 1,000 feet. This location results in perfect conditions for growing Cabernet Sauvignon with warm days and cool nights. The resulting wine has an abundant intensity of fruit, but still maintains balance and freshness. In addition, hillside plantings and calcareous soil summed with lots of fossilized sea shells give the wine a mineral thread uncommon to most red wines at this price point.
Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon is the result of our faithful effort to capture a pure and
unadulterated representation of the grape and site. With 1000 feet of elevation and a chilling coastal influence, the well-drained soils at Margarita Vineyard provide a balance of stress and sustenance to the rugged vines. Their fruit is marked by small berries, concentrated flavors, and fine tannins. While robustly fruited in its youth, Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon is graced with an underlying framework of subtle tannin and acidity that ensures a bright future in the cellar as well. Black currant and berry compote highlight a brightly wound core of berry fruit and spice. Finishes dry with a sleek vein of minerality. " ~ Winery notes
