Bianchi Winery Releases 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Bianchi Winery (Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room) has released its 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Signature Selection.
From the much anticipated and heralded 2007 vintage in California, the Cabernet Sauvignon is 100% Paso Robles featuring a blend of Bianchi Winery’s Lakeside Estate Clone 8 Cab (65%) and sourced Plummer Vineyard Clone 337 (35%). Some 1,590 cases were produced and the wine carries a suggested retail price of $17.99. Alcohol by volume is 14.8%.
Said Beau Bianchi, President of Sales & Marketing, “Our winemaker, Tom Lane worked his fine magic yet again – finding the perfect balance by blending just the right amount of our own medium-bodied Lakeside Estate grapes with the backbone and aggressive tannins of the Plummer grapes.” He added, “Mindful of the later, this Cab saw 30 months in new French oak, the result being a finished wine exhibiting beautiful berry fruit and a palate engaging complexity of flavors.”
The winery’s estate vineyards produce varietal grapes that are best suited for the rolling hills and dissected uplands of the heart of Paso Robles: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel. The winery also produces popular wines from high quality sourced grapes grown in greater Paso Robles and along California’s Central Coast. These include a Santa Barbara Chardonnay, Los Alamos Pinot Grigio, Santa Maria Pinot Noir, Monterey Sauvignon Blanc, Paso Robles Petite Sirah, Cabernet Franc and Moscato as well as embracing the Bianchi’s Italian heritage with a Sangiovese, Barbera and the interestingly uncommon Refosco.
