2015 Aglianico, French Camp Vineyard Our block of Aglianico at French Camp Vineyard thrives in one of the warmest sections of the Paso Robles AVA. Nevertheless, it is often the last fruit to be picked in any given harvest, it ripens slowly, and retains beautiful freshness and acidity at relatively low sugars. Thick-skinned and intense, its brooding dark fruit dominates flavors produced early in fermentation. As the intensity subsides, floral and nuanced spice aromas emerge.
Tasting notes More concentrated and powerful due to the low yielding vintage, our 2015 French Camp Aglianico displays its usual nose of violet, game, rosemary, and earthy, blackberry fruit. Its structured palate displays loads of blackberry, cocoa, hibiscus tea, tobacco and black pepper. This wine begs for grilled red meat – particularly Lamb.
