2011 Field Recordings "Fiction" Paso Robles Red Blend

SKU #1112982

A primarily Zinfandel-based wine (50%) with a balance (in order of volume) of Mourvedre, Touriga Nacional, Petite Sirah, Grenache, Syrah, and Tempranillo, Field Recordings describes this wine as a wine for people who love Zinfandel but who don't always know it: "Bright raspberries and blueberries, yes--almost jammy, but layered in spice and herbs. It's like berry cola, peppered flank steak, and kitchen gardens, all in one. It's ripe and ready to drink tonight, and don't be embarrassed to take it out to dinner: your Zin-hating friends won't know what hit them." The wine spent 6 months in 30% new French and American oak before being bottled unfined and unfilterered.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
