Paso Robles
Bordeaux Blend

As proud & regal as the king on his way to the chopping block, this wine is profoundly deep, & as pensive & opaque as smoldering black velvet. Here you have ripe cassis & tobacco, a touch of green olive with a few lovely twigs from the tree thrown in, a sprinkle of maroon-hued rose petals comingled with the juice of tart black cherries & red Hinnomaki gooseberry. The mouth fully compliments the nose in every way, save for the addition of freshly shelled walnut, dusty strawberry & cedar. And, oh yes, there’s that bit of dark chocolate sprinkled with a pinch of cayenne on the tongue! Though the name “Littoral” literally pokes fun at Bordeaux, this bottle is a fine exemplar of “type” & is reminiscent of a classic red from that famous wine region of France whose blends serve as our humble Littoral inspiration.
