Main Squeeze


Twisted Paso

Main Squeeze

Region: America / Central Coast

The Main Squeeze is a bringing together of our region’s three most highly planted red varietals and a great example of how the Paso Robles area can produce such wonderful and different fruit. Upon completion of malo-lactic fermentation, the wines were racked together into a single blend, and aged in 15% new American and 85% neutral French and American oak for 18 months.

tasting note

The three varietals combine to create an extremely dark purple wine with a nose filled with plum, black cherry and pepper. The brighter Zinfandel fruit fills the upfront flavor while the ample blackberry, cocoa and earth of the Syrah and Cabernet take over the mid-palate. The young chalky tannins of the finish indicate a wine of more sophistication and age worthiness than the name would lead you to believe.

food pairing

Pairs well with barbequed brisket or Tri-tip
