Bridlewood Cabernet Sauvignon 2009
The 2009 Bridlewood Estate Winery Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry, spice and cedar. The wine tastes of jammy fruit, molasses and mocha and has very light tannins. The finish is dry and slightly sweet. "A potential stunning bargain in Cabernet Sauvignon is Bridlewood’s 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. There are 18,000 cases of this $15 a bottle Cabernet, a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Merlot and a dollop of Zinfandel. It offers copious amounts of black currant fruit intermixed with cedar, spice box notes, full body, sweet tannins and an opulent texture. This wine clearly over-delivers and from an area known for its robust alcohol levels, it came in at a mere 13% alcohol."

Bridlewood Chardonnay 2009
Bridlewood Estate Vineyard’s Monterey County Chardonnay was crafted to emphasize the pure ripe fruit typical of the region. A majority of the fruit was harvested at night and in the early morning, keeping the grapes at optimum cool temperatures for fermentation. The wine was briefly cold settled and then racked prior to stainless steel fermentation, during which the temperature was maintained between 55-60º F. The Monterey County Chardonnay did not undergo malolactic fermentation. To increase aromatics, Viognier accounts for six percent of the final blend. Golden yellow color. Attractive aromas of pound cake, pineapple sorbet, and coconut shavings with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a tangy, nicely balanced creamy vanilla and apple sauce finish.

Bridlewood Pinot Noir 2008
Monterey County Pinot Noir displays lush floral aromas that extend to the palate and combine with dark fruit flavors of raspberry and dark cherry with hints of caramel and toffee. The Coastal Pinots standout on the nose and palate when opened and tasted. Monterey County enjoys a cool, foggy climate that is ideal for Pinot Noir. Typically, bud break begins several weeks earlier and harvest ends several weeks later than other growing regions. This wine has a complex structure that is framed by floral and black pepper notes, creating an elegant mouthfeel and lingering finish.
