Proprietary Red Blend Central Coast

A classic Bordeaux blend of primarily Merlot, Petite Sirah, Malbec & Cabernet Sauvignon, we craft this Proprietary Red Blend with fruit from three prestigious appellations of the Central Coast: Arroyo Seco, Santa Lucia Highlands and San Antonio Valley.

TASTING NOTES

Aromas of ripe blackberry and black cherry, balanced with notes of cocoa bean, vanilla and nuanced toasted oak. The refined yet plush palate with flavors of bramble berries, dark fruit, and dried cherry with silky layers of tannins and a hint of slate on the finish.

Central Coast

FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS, WE HAVE CRAFTED BOLD RED WINES ALONG CALIFORNIA’S CENTRAL COAST

Ranging from Santa Barbara north to the Golden Gate Bridge, the Central Coast wine region extends 300 miles along California’s Pacific coastline. To craft the Smith & Hook Proprietary Red Blend release, we focus on three unique warmer regions ideal for developing rich, bold character in Bordeaux varietals.
