Bridlewood Central Coast Red Blend
At Bridlewood, we like to take our time. We hand select our grapes from California's vast Central Coast AVA, and we pour our passion into winemaking. Our tasting room sits on a picturesque 105-acre estate which rests on a high bench of ancient seabed, facing the Pacific breezes that meander through the Santa Ynez Mountains to the south and the Purisima Hills and San Raphael Mountains to the north. Days are warm, nights are cool and the abundant sunshine is tempered by wind and fog. This is Central Coast Wine Country at its best. We spent a lot of time in the barrel room to get this blend just right before bottling. We tasted the different vineyard lots 175 times before we blended them together to create a well-balanced wine that embodies the vast Central Coast appellation. The final blend is comprised of predominantly Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. This blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel has ripe, jammy fruit flavors with a touch of sweet oak and a delicate finish.
