Great Wine Starts in this Paso Robles Vineyard

The Cass Estate Vineyard, located southeast of the town of Paso Robles, exemplifies the quality of the Paso Robles region with its warm days, cool coastal breezes, and exceptional soils. Resting at 900 feet of elevation, the 145-acre vineyard is planted to 12 varieties on a large terrace above the Huer Huero River. Deposited over centuries, the diverse alluvial soils make for an expressive site that produces fruit of incredible quality.

The vines on Cass Vineyard are ENTAV certified.  ENTAV is an agency of the French government that is responsible for certification of winegrape clones for the wine industry in France.  Vines that have been thru this process constitute 90% of all new plantings in France because they are free of debilitating viruses, mature evenly, and can be matched to soils best suited to their development.  Additionally, grapes in the certification process are made into wine, and descriptors of the wine are available to growers to allow for the best possible selection of vine materials.

Viognier

Exotically aromatic; fragrances reminiscent of tropical isles envelope the senses casting notes of pressed pineapple, fresh guava, ripe apricot and muskmelon. Waves of minced mango, spiced tangerine, white peach and lemon zest sail atop a lush yet refreshing palate. A perfumed finish, delicately infused with citrus blossom, Fuji apple and essence of gingered herbal tea calmly lingers

Wine #2

Rockin’ One Blanc

Tasting Notes
Mirrors of gold reflect hints of Asian pear preserves, melon meringue, candied quince and hawthorn blossom. Essence of freshly whipped butter cream, Meyer lemon custard and white peach balance upon a full yet delicate palate. Soft acidity and stony minerality weave flavors of crushed chamomile, baking spice and toasted cashews that herald a lingering, layered finish kissed by honey tea.
Winemaking
Looking to bring an added dimension to the ripe fruit of Roussanne and the texture of Marsanne, the 2014 Rockin’ One was fermented and aged in seasoned oak barrels. Hand picked in the early morning, the cold grapes were pressed within moments after coming off the vine. The long, slow fermentation helped maintain crucial aromatics, while occasional lees stirring helped lend texture and structure to the wine. Unlike Cass’s other white wines, the 2014 Rockin’ One underwent partial malolactic fermentation.
