Notes of clove, nutmeg and cinnamon set the stage for our Bridlewood Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. These nuances are complemented by flavors of black currant, blackberry and cassis. We added Petite Sirah to enhance the dark fruit characteristics and structure, resulting in a plush mouthfeel. Round tannins lead to a sweet, smooth finish drizzled with caramel.
Bridlewood joins a long and rich tradition of winemaking in Santa Barbara County. It wasn't until the 1960's and 1970's, when new breed of pioneering winemakers, including Dan Gehrs, started making wine in the broad area called the Central Coast, that a southern California winemaking renaissance occurred. Although the winery's capacity is 50,000 cases, releases for the first few years will be 10-15,000 cases. Growth will be consistent with the winery's philosophy of producing many small lots of high quality wines.
