Oak and blackberry nose. In the mouth, it's rich and flavorful with chewy tannins and dark chocolate notes.

Bridlewood Winery was designed for high-quality, artisan winemaking. Just inside the adobe façade of this Spanish-style winery, state-of-the-art equipment is the order of the day: pneumatic bladder presses, temperature controlled fermenters, gentle grape and wine handling systems, and the finest European and American oak barrels. Our intimate winery is the perfect workshop for winemaker David Hopkins, who selects grapes from dozens of Central Coast vineyards to create his intense , lush Pinot Noir, aromatic Viognier and elegant Chardonnay. Each wine is as unique as the Bridlewood property itself. Read less

Filled with dark fruit, jam, chocolate, and hints of spice on the nose. The palate serves as even more spicy, peppery with black currants and a rustic earthiness on the finish.

Now we're talkin. Grainy plummy nose. Big jammy dark thick fruit in the mouth. A grand wine experience.

White pepper nose thats very intriguing. Excellent concentration - a very rich and meaty wine. Full of black fruit flavors. Very spicy finish with white pepper coming through again. Very nice - my favorite of the tasting (9 bottles)

A big wine. Blackberry, plum, and spicy cedar aromas. Blackberry jam on the palate. Would be well-suited to a few years of cellaring, and then this blend would be even better. 93% syrah, with 3.6% grenache, 1% Roussanne, and .8% Cinsault.

Blackberry and spice really shine in this outstanding wine, even has a chewy tobacco on the backend. Really impressive wine.
