Founded in 1981, and located in Templeton, California, Wild Horse Winery &Vineyards is named after the mustangs that once roamed the hills east of the vineyard estate.
They source their Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from the best vineyards throughout California’s Central Coast—from Santa Barbara to Monterey.
Wild Horse Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
A blend of grapes from three winegrowing areas within the Central Coast: Monterey, Paso Robles, and Santa Barbara County. Both Paso Robles and Monterey County have large daily temperature swings that make them wonderful places for growing Bordeaux varietals like Cabernet Sauvignon. Distinctive for its bold, fruit-forward character, this Cabernet Sauvignon portrays rich aromas and flavors of cherry, strawberry, cedar, and clove, coupled with a lush mouthfeel yielding smooth tannins. The vibrant fruit and balanced acidity found in this wine makes a perfect match for a variety of foods including rosemary seasoned pork loin, rack of lamb and aged cheeses.

Wild Horse Chardonnay Unbridled 2012
Wild Horse Unbridled Chardonnay provides incredible depth and richness while also maintaining the elegant characteristic of old world wines. The ocean influence in the Santa Maria Valley provides the distinctiveness of citrus, pear, and apple coupled with bright acidity. The 100% malolactic fermentation naturally lowers the inherent acidity in the wine contributing to a complex and fulfilling mid-palate richness. This exquisite Chardonnay demonstrates extremely bright citrus and apple aromas mixed with subtle nutty caramel from the French Oak followed by a graceful, well balanced finish. This wine is well paired with seared Ahi and grilled rolled chicken tacos with corn cake.

Wild Horse Merlot 2012
Paso Robles provides Wild Horse with exceptional Merlot fruit that is typically more intense and structured than its cousin, Cabernet Sauvignon. Wild Horse Merlot is a wine that provides rich ripe fruit flavors balanced by bright acidity. The combination of cherry and cassis
swirl together with the slight presence of spice, and flow into a well rounded finish of mild toasty tannin. The soft, rich tannins, acidity and long finish make this wine an age worthy contender.
This wine is a favorite to pair with stews, braised beef or pasta and Marinara sauce.

Wild Horse Pinot Noir 2013
The name Wild Horse is nearly synonymous with incredible Pinot Noirs. Each vineyard lot was hand-harvested and fermented separately in a mix of small open and closed-top fermentors. Lots were then inoculated with yeast after a three day cold soak to develop color and flavors. During fermentation, the open-tops were punched down two to three times daily, and the closed-tops are pumped over with the same frequency from sprinkler irrigators. Pressing occurred at, or following, post-cap fall and then malolactic fermentation was completed in barrel.
This Pinot Noir showcases aromas and flavors of bright raspberry, ripe strawberry, and dusty spices leading to a rich, juicy, well-balanced mouthfeel. A food friendly and very approachable wine, enjoy this Pinot Noir with baked penne, roasted vegetables or pork short ribs.

Wild Horse Viognier 2012
Historically, Viognier (vee-OHN-yea) has been an extremely rare grape variety, producing wines destined for fortunate members of royalty and popes. Prized for its alluring aromatics and hedonistic flavors, Viognier is now available to wine lovers everywhere. Using grapes grown on both their estate vineyard and in San Benito County, Wild Horse Viognier is a beautiful expression of this rare Northern Rhône variety. The fruit came from three vineyards throughout the Paso Robles viticultural area: Wild Horse Estate, Nevarez, and Fralich. The flavors and mouthfeel are aplenty with peach, apricot and lemon followed by a crisp, bright, medium bodied palette with a crisp lingering finish. Enjoy this wine with seared scallops, pad Thai, or aged cheeses.
