Iron + Sand Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Add To Cart
/ 750mL

Born from the grit of Paso Robles, CA, Iron + Sand is a nostalgic nod to the natural draw of the historic hot springs, Iron Spring and Sand Spring, that propelled Paso Robles into a bustling destination known as California’s oldest watering place. Iron and sand are also important elements in the wine’s classic Paso terroir, as the sturdy iron trellising supports the
bearing vines and the alluvial, well-drained sandy soils are the perfect match for Cabernet Sauvignon.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dense purple in color, this wine opens with aromas of dark plums, black cherries, freshly picked black berries and raspberries intertwined with hints of graphite and baking spices that frame this fruit-driven wine. Balanced acidity on the palate combines perfectly with rich, chocolate, bramble berry fruit flavors, velvety tannins and a lingering, mouthwatering finish.
Vineyard Notes
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is sustainably sourced from two renowned Paso Robles vineyards located in prime sub-AVAs. The majority of the grapes come from the San Miguel District, the northern most sub-AVA in the greater Paso Robles region, this area was named after the San Miguel Mission, built by Franciscan missionaries in the late 1700s. Fruit from this region is subject to the effects of large diurnal shifts, sometimes experiencing a swing as large as 50 degrees, helping to enhance beautiful acidity in the fruit. The deep alluvial, sandy soils, tailored with being one of the warmer AVAs in the Paso Robles region, makes for ripe fruit and smooth tannins. About 15% of the grapes come from the family-owned Parrish Templeton Vineyard in the El Pomar District, south of the city of Paso Robles and east of the Templeton Gap, where sea breezes and marine fog help to cool the vineyards at nights.
Production Notes
The 2017 growing season experienced a mild, wet spring followed by a period of unusually warm and humid weather. Warm weather during most of the growing season, coupled with drought-busting rains, created vigorous vine growth. Rainfall was nearly double the average for the Paso Robles area. An extended cool period during bloom created loose, open clusters that allowed air and light penetration. Harvest began at the end of September and this vintage presented exceptional fruit quality.
Winemaker Notes
After careful harvesting, grapes were brought to the winery for processing. Our unique winery set up, with fermenters situated on top of storage tanks, allows for minimal pump usage while sending pomace to our press. A distinctive pump-over regime was utilized for each lot, and maceration occurred on average over 7–8 days. This wine was aged in 2–3 year old predominantly French oak barrels for 9–12 months.
