2018 Monarch Red Blend
The 2018 Monarch Red Blend was sourced primarily from Whale Rock, Blind Faith and Jack Knife Vineyards in Paso Robles. Paso Robles is known for its soil diversity and the Whale Rock Vineyard is a great example of this with soils ranging from rocky river stone to clay to limestone.
Our winemaker blends this wine to create big powerful flavors with a streak of alluring spice. The blend consists of Merlot and Cabernet that contribute rich complexity and then enhanced by the exotic addition of Charbono and Carignane. This blend is a striking crowd pleaser opening with notes of rose petals and dried cherries before leading into flavors of boysenberry jam, black pepper and dark chocolate.
This deep, rich wine pairs beautifully with both savory and sweet flavors, our favorite pairing is candied lamb pops with fig sauce.
