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 Enthusiast Review
Rated 92 Points
A dense blackberry aroma is lifted by loam, cocoa and mint on the nose of this bottling. There are firm tannins framing the sip, which is cohesive and well integrated, with flavors of toasted wood, cocoa spice and rich dark berry.
Wine Tasting Notes
Dense purple in color, this wine opens with aromas of dark cherries, blackberry preserves and a dusting of coco powder and clove. On the entry, ripe, dark fruit flavors hit the palate before rounding out to earthy, rich chocolate covered cherries complemented by lively acidity and fine tannins that lifts the wine and suggests a long life. The finish is long, supple and mouthwatering.
