Fleur de Solène
- Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Grenache
- Westside Paso Robles
This wine reminds Guillaume of how different winemaking in France would have been since this blend is not permitted in Bordeaux. The fruit is picked from several west side vineyards in the Willow Creek and Adelaida Districts. The Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented separately in concrete tanks to showcase the minerality and freshness that Cabernet can bring to a Rhone blend. The Syrah and Grenache are fermented and aged in 400L barrels to further integrate the fruit with a softer yet chalky palate feel. This wine has a soft and elegant side, bringing classy tannins and approachability.
