Vineyard Notes
The 2020 vintage comes from six distinct Cabernet Sauvignon blocks at Margarita Vineyard. Blocks 11, 13, 14 and 15 all unfold along highly calcareous soils composed of ancient sea bed, which imparts a sense of stony minerality to the fruit. The northeast-facing Block 11 is marked by notes of red fruits and dried herbs, while blocks 13, 14 and 15 offer blue fruit flavors with impressive density gained from southwesterly sun exposure. Blocks 49 and 50 are rooted in a combination of sea bed and shale soils, yielding a classic Cabernet profile with a mixture of red and black fruits. The individual qualities of these blocks combine to bring dimension and nuance to the final blend. Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles region, nestled into the rugged Santa Lucia Mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean in the new Santa Margarita Ranch AVA. The mountain peaks act as a gateway for cool marine air, resulting in an extended growing season that yields fruit with uncommon depth and structure. The peaks are also testaments to the tectonic forces that created Margarita Vineyard’s rare diversity of soils, ultimately fostering natural complexity in our wines.
