This is our fifth vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon from Margarita Vineyard in southern Paso
Robles. Margarita Vineyard is a beautiful, off-the-beaten path jewel in Paso. It is located at
1,000 ft. elevation and 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Some people may consider this area in
California to be “too cool” to fully ripen Cabernet, but we believe it to be the opposite! The
maritime climate affords us a longer growing season to help ripen the Cabernet without it
being overly ripe. This is a very delicate expression of California Cabernet, with mild tannins in
the background from the small berries.
There is also a mineral core to this wine, a common thread that you’ll find in many of the
wines from this vineyard making it unique. The uplifted seabed and calcareous nature of this
vineyard helps to maintain a good balanced acidity in the wine.
BLEND: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petite Verdot
About Brea Wine Co.
Chris Brockway, a noted California natural winemaker and owner of Broc Cellars, and Tim Elenteny, the libations logistics leader of Elenteny Imports, are the masterminds behind BREA Wine Company.
They have seen the thirst for site-specific, terroir driven, and sustainably farmed wine become the driving force for many avant-garde California winemakers who gravitate toward varieties that flow outside the mainstream. BREA Wine Company seeks to capture this thirst while also bringing the beloved classic varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir into the fold.
The two seek to create wine that is beyond reproach by fostering close relationships with farmers and choosing vineyards known for their high- quality grapes. BREA wines are accessible in price, quality, and ready-to-drink but also suitable for short-term aging. Their goal is to open minds back up to these classic varietals. BREA Wines has become a beloved name in wine over the years and one you’ll be proud to have on your shelves!
