Tasting Notes
Technical Details

This crop of Cabernet Franc from our estate vineyards was a much anticipated one. It is a very robust style that retains elegance and finesse. It is quite firm on the palate but the masses of spicy fruit and balancing oak compliment the grip nicely. The color is deep and intense reflecting the wine’s brooding nature. Bright natural acidity will ensure this wine ages for many years.

The Estate

Deeply rooted in the pioneering spirit of Paso Robles Wine Country, Broken Earth wines are born from heritage, hard work and careful stewardship of our vineyard. Land that once sustained generations of cattle ranchers and then visionary grape growers is now home to over 700 acres of vines on Paso Robles’ east side. Our wines stand as a bold expression of this place, each with their own story to tell.

Wine Making

Cabernet Franc is a significant Bordeaux variety that figures prominently in the “right bank” styles of Pomerol and St. Emilion although it is rarely released there on its own. Paso Robles’ climate has the ability to get it ripe on its own and we are confident, and excited, to release this 100% varietal.

"There's a purity of dark berry and cherry on the nose of this bottling, along with a lush hint of caramel. The palate shows similar dark fruit qualities, but with ample tension that pushes through the finish as well as underlying woospide, herb and pepper notes."
