Protest Sonoma County Red Blend
The Rye whiskey aromas are uniquely subtle, and meld well with the silky, dense-fruit Syrah with hints of cigar box and fresh leaf tobacco. The intense, dusty-black fruit flavors have a warm intermingling of the Rye whiskey flavors. It tastes like a sumptuous wine, but then it has transformed into a different animal, with the Rye whiskey aromas and tastes. More delicious chewy, bacon-fat tones, with deep blackberry and black raspberry jam highlights. It invokes a pipe smoke-filled room with old classic novels lying about.

Huerhuero Vineyard Estate Rosé
Inspired by the refreshing, dry rosés of southern France. With its sunsoaked slopes and coastal ambiance, Paso Robles boasts an ideal terroir for echoing the flavor and spirit of these popular Mediterranean wines. Select blocks of Syrah, Grenache and Viognier from our estate Huerhuero Vineyard were each harvested for this wine when they reached full-flavor ripeness. At the winery, the grapes were crushed and transferred directly into stainless steel tanks. The Syrah was cold soaked on its skins for two hours to extract color and flavor without excessive astringency. The juice was then drained off and into another tank then cold settled for 48 hours to further remove excess sediment. Upon racking, all three lots were inoculated with a selected yeast strain to express fresh, aromatic fruit aromas and enhance complexity, then blended just prior to bottling.
