We will be sampling the following wines from Cass:

2013 Flying Nymph Blanc

Our intrepid traveler alights in Paso Robles on an oasis where the air, light, and vines beckon to renew and refresh, where kismet has led us to till a dream.  Idealistic and visionary, our Flying Nymph celebrates freedom on this romantic flight of fancy.  We invite you to share the journey and discover the essence of our wine.  65% Roussanne / 35% Marsanne.  Aged and fermented in stainless steel.  No malolactic fermentation.

2013 Viognier

This 2013 Viognier was 100% cold fermented in stainless steel tanks. This star bright Viognier’s bouquet explodes with aromas of tropical fruits, lychee, fresh white peach, honeysuckle and crushed acacia flower.  The palate is extremely refreshing with vibrant flavors of red grapefruit, limeade and apricot flowing into a lush kumquat, Meyer lemon and spiced pineapple finish.  This fragrant, mineral-driven white is a quintessential example of Viognier’s varietal characteristics at its best. This crisp, flavorful wine is best drunk young.

2013 Flying Nymph Red

Our intrepid traveler alights in Paso Robles on an oasis where the air, light, and vines beckon to renew and refresh, where kismet has led us to till a dream.  Idealistic and visionary, our Flying Nymph celebrates freedom on this romantic flight of fancy.  We invite you to share the journey and discover the essence of our wine.  47% Mourvedre, 46% Grenache, 7% Syrah.

2011 Grenache

Delicate and medium-bodied, yet showcasing the classic elements of Cass Vineyard, the 2011 Grenache leans towards the spicier side of the variety with baking spice, bergamont tea, and pink peppercorn aromatics framed up by bright red strawberry and touches of old world meatiness. Medium-bodied and driven by sour cherry and strawberry jam on the palate, it showcases a satiny mouthfeel with bright acid and bursts of rose water and orange oil. The fruit echoes on the finish with warm notes and moderate tannins.

2012 Rockin' One

Stewed black cherry, cracked black pepper, star anise, and subtle hints of vanilla bean emanate from this seamless blend of 60% Mourvèdre, 23% Syrah, 10% Petite Sirah and 7% Grenache. The mid-palate showcases ripe dark fruit, roasted hazelnuts, black licorice and traces of campfire smoke. Nuances of toffee, aged leather, cinnamon spice and sweet spearmint complete this blend's long finish. Enjoy now until 2020.

2011 Cabernet Sauvignon

76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Petit Verdot, 7% Malbec.  The aromatics are downright huge on the entry, filled with warm winter spice notes of cinnamon and clove that accompany baked plum, currant, cassis, and cedar. The palate is a full bore, mouth-coating experience of baked black cherry, cola, licorice, red plum, and fig jam. Consistent with the nose are flavors of warm spices, complemented by high notes of brown sugar and wintergreen. Soft and full, the tannins are sweet and integrated, showing good mid palate traction and a spicy body that trails off with a burst of melted cherry. A classic Cabernet from Cass and clearly one of the most outstanding in recent years.
