Bright cherry and cassis. Rich fruit drives the palate, balanced with delicate spice, minerality, & structure persisting on the long, dry finish.
Broadside started as a reflection of a place – the stunningly beautiful Margarita Vineyard in southern Paso Robles. The vineyard is special. You can feel the presence of the Pacific Ocean here, both in the sudden chill of the maritime air, and the white, fossilized marine shells that pockmark the limestone soils. As a testimony to the vineyard’s quality, Robert Mondavi planted the site to Cabernet Sauvignon in the mid-1990s. This was to be his flagship Bordeaux vineyard (outside of his Napa To Kalon Vineyard). Fast forward 10 years after a corporate buyout of the property, some of the best parcels of Cabernet there were up for grabs. Enter Brian Terrizzi, who, thanks to his friendly connection with the vineyard manager, got in early and literally handpicked the Cabernet blocks that he wanted to work with.
