Martin & Weyrich Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Etrusco 2005
Wine Tasting Notes It was the Etruscans who first farmed Sangiovese in the rustic foothills of what is now called Tuscany. As the Martin Brothers are among the very first American wine producers to release striking "super Tuscan blends," we have commemorated this Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese blend as Cabernet Etrusco. The chimera, the mythical figure of Roman legend, is revealed on this label as a symbol of the combination of many parts.
Since 1981 Martin & Weyrich has planted more than 250 acres in San Luis Obispo County. Currently two of the vineyards are located in the Paso Robles Appellation: The Weyrich Family Ranch, located just a few miles from the winery, and the Martin & Weyrich Estate Vineyard, at the winery. The family also owns the spectacular Jack Ranch Vineyard in Edna Valley, a region renowned for growing some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir California has to offer.
