WORLD CLASS PASO ROBLES PRODUCER
Coined during some civil unrest and was one of the first terms in the UK to go viral. Brecon loves how it rolls off the tongue and of course imagines its wine a tad on the riotous side! It all kind of fits, as we use two varieties traditionally excluded from the nobel variety club. Petite Sirah and Zinfandel. When properly nurtured in Paso Robles they can truly be world class. We finally put one proverbial finger up at the conventions of a class system by bottling it in our single vineyard reserve program. By the way, it’s a big structured cooler climate Petite Sirah/Zinfandel blend with bags of character and layers of hidden pepper and spice. BTW none of our team was involved in said riots!
- 67% Petite Sirah
- 33% Zinfandel
