Rated 95 Points and awarded a Platinum Medal at the 2023 Monterey Inernational Wine Competition!
Our most popular blend is back — the new Independence Red is 100% estate-grown and the best yet! It is a beautiful Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. This vintage tastes very much like the original blend with lots of black cherry characters. This wine is ready to drink now and over the next 3 to 5 years. Only 125 cases produced.
"Bordeaux inspired blends are prevalent in California for obvious reasons, and a few manage to tip their hat a little more forcefully in the French direction, as this wine does. It captures the earth to fruit balance beautifully while still managing to announce its Paso Robles roots. This is built for your finest fare, and it’s offered at a bargain price for its quality level. Don’t miss this!" - Rich Cook
