  • The 2020 Broken Earth Signature Merlot embodies the charm and character of Paso Robles. This rendition of the classic Bordeaux varietal is the complete package. On the nose, this wine presents an exciting bouquet of blueberries, plum, dark cherry, and tobacco. The palate has a balanced structure with moderate acidity and a velvety tannin structure that is held together by an understated oak profile. The 2020 Merlot is a testament to our commitment to crafting wines that display elegance and varietal correctness while being approachable for novice wine drinkers yet deeply layered and engaging enough for seasoned wine enthusiasts. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with a variety of dishes, this Merlot exemplifies the quality that Broken Earth strives for, as well as the prowess of the Paso Robles AVA Download Tasting Notes
  • Petite Sirah usually ripens early and is the first red to the party. In 2020 we picked this grape on October 1st, 2020. Forty tons were machine harvested in the dead of night to keep the grapes cold for transportation to the winery. Upon arrival the grapes were destemmed and gently crushed to open the berries for fermentation. Clos yeast was added immediately after the grapes were safely in the tank. Two pump-overs a day were completed until fermentation was done. This 2020 Reserve Broken Earth Petite Sirah was originally planted in 1996 to a parcel that was 40 acres in size. The small yield gives this wine a complex and intense structure. Originally called Duriff in the Rhone growing region in France, Petite Sirah made its way to California as a blending grape. Over time it became obvious that with California’s climate Petite Sirah could fully ripen. It is now one of the darlings of the state, especially of Paso Robles. Download the Tasting Notes
  • When a red wine drinker describes a wine that they would like to consume often, they often describe Merlot. Soft and generous in flavor, Merlot is a significant Bordeaux variety grown in Paso Robles for many years. Merlot likes the sun and the heat. The 2020 Broken Earth Reserve Merlot displays all the characteristics that make Merlot so charming. Expressive dark fruits with silky tannins fill the mouth. Bright acidity goes down clean on the finish. This Merlot was machine-harvested on September 10th in the middle of the night. Early the same day it arrived at the winery and was de-stemmed, crushed, and inoculated with BDX yeast. Twopump-overs a day were done until fermentation was completed. After pressing malolactic fermentation was started. The wine then was barreled into new French and Hybrid barrels and aged for 24 months. The wine was filtered and bottled on February 16, 2023. We produced 215 cases. Merlot is one of the 5 Bordeaux varietals that are famous in France and beyond. Broken Earth’s Reserve Merlot is layered with rich anise, cherry, and spice flavors. It pairs well with grilled chicken and pork loin. Ready to drink at the initial bottling this Merlot still has the structure to age with grace.
  • Rosé, as a wine, has certainly gained prominence in recent years with consumers. The darker, sweeter versions have given way, though, too much tighter and drier styles that reflect real elegance and style. We chose Grenache to be the basis of our Rosé which is the predominant grape used in Provence-style Rosé blends. This 2022 vintage is bright, fresh, and highly fragrant. While it is very dry on the palate you'll get a burst of strawberry and raspberry fruit. It has a great length of flavor and wonderfully balanced acidity making it the perfect drink for all your spring and summer occasions!  
  • Cabernet Franc is a significant Bordeaux variety that figures prominently in the “right bank” styles of Pomerol and St. Emilion although it is rarely released there on its own. Paso Robles’ climate has the ability to get it ripe on its own and we are confident, and excited, to release this 100% varietal. This crop of Cabernet Franc from our estate vineyards was a much anticipated one. It is a very robust style that retains elegance and finesse. Download Tasting Notes
  • Held up to the light, this wine illuminates an opaque and yet semi-translucent ruby color. Scents of chocolate, cherries and baked berry pie waft from the glass. It’s impossible not to want to get more up close and personal with this wine. A slight leather flavor mixed within tobacco and earth notes makes itself known up front and in the cheeks. In the middle of the palate, there is distinct cacao power and a sultry dark chocolate nib taste mixed with delicate floral notes that envelops the senses. Download Tasting Notes
  • This is the third crop from a section of Cabernet Sauvignon vines that were replanted, and it is the first real showing of our vineyard’s true potential as these vines will produce and improve upon with age. This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon matured in New French Oak, which has an extremely tight grain and leaves little space for air exposure, creating a more delicate mouthfeel. According to the winemaker, this is a French Cabernet on steroids. Pair this wine with duck or a leaner beef, with nothing too rich in the sauce. Perfectly seared lamb would also go quite nicely.

  • A new adventure with an old friend. La Belle emphasizes all things lovely about the Muscatel varietal that we have adored, and unfortunately forgotten about over the years. This Muscatel, known by the more common name of Muscat, offers insight into a whole new world of what can be achieved when this grape is produced in a new style. When popped and poured, the Lily of the Valley florals and deeply aromatic esters erupt out of the glass with the most delicate of force. The effervescence eager to be set free, it delivers with a cloudburst of ripe peach and other stone fruit, enchanting the utmost reaches of the palate. Instead of the wine continuing on with enveloping levels of overwhelming sweetness, it makes an acute turn in the direction of spritely acidity. A graceful summer porch sipper, acting as a foil to those beastly reds so commonly found in Paso Robles and throughout California. This is a wine that can fly solo, but with its acidity and off dry approachability can stand up to many a cuisine. The best attribute being, this wine can stand up to spice and sour dishes, such as Korean barbecue or various curries. Any variation of a farmer’s market fresh summer dish will work as a hassle-free pairing as well. Download Tasting Notes
  • The beast has been released! This one hundred percent Tannat does not hold back, and neither should you. A bold, rich varietal that is making a name for itself in California is native to Uruguay; it is the dominant grape grown in the Basque region bordering Spain and France. A deep mulberry color comes from the thick skins of the grape, which also creates a gripping tannin structure on the palate. Mulberry and other dark berry flavors are mirrored in the flavor profile with each sip becoming more intense. This is an unapologetically delicious wine, containing a perceived sweetness and ever giving fruit. Le Bête has a generous structure that pairs impeccably with multiple foods. Staying true to its Basque roots, paella is a rather traditional pairing, especially when the socarrat is perfectly browned. And for an extra bite of luxury, use some of the wine in your favorite barbecue sauce recipe to bring the flavor to the next level... don’t be shy! Download Tasting Notes
  • Our Ragpicker’s Dream is made from four traditional Portuguese varietals: Touriga Nacional, Tinta Cao, Sousao & Tinta Roriz. It is a vintage-style Port, but as it is not made in Portugal we are not allowed to call it Port, hence the “Dessert Wine” Classification on the back label. Reminiscent of port wines from the Douro Valley in northern Portugal, this wine is made from traditional Portuguese varieties. This port is sure to compliment a multitude of desserts; but is divine enough to be enjoyed on its own. Download Tasting Notes
  • This is a Mistella style (fortified grape juice) made from Black Muscat grapes. The juice itself has not been fermented so it is very sweet. It is 16.5% alcohol (due to addition of fortifying spirit) which balances the sweetness nicely. The style is technically called a “Mistella” but is classified by the TTB as an “Angelica.” It has a pale apricot color and would suit anything from fresh fruit and berries to dishes with a syrup or sugar glaze. This is a chance to be daring! Download Tasting Notes
