2014 "Auburn" Red Blend
The Auburn Red Blend is created from selected blocks of Merlot and Petite Sirah grapes that are sustainably grown. Nestled in the Paso Robles appellation of California, this wine was estate grown and crafted by our highly awarded Australian winemaker, Chris Cameron. The wine exhibits “juiciness” of fruit with mouth watering red berries dominating, leaving you eager for more.
Immediately on the nose blueberries and raspberries abound. The subtle, smoky oak lingers in the background with hints of anise sneaking through. The bouquet alone leaves you eager for more and the palate does not disappoint. While the wine would be considered of ‘middle’ weight, the sheer presence of so much flavor is surprising. The tannins are soft but make their presence known, providing a clean finish to support the great length of flavor. Oak is evident but only used in a supporting role so not to take the spotlight off the flavors.
