Viognier2015 Viognier

The Nadeau Family Vintners 2015 Viognier is a lovely white wine. It is 100% Viognier and the descriptors are classic Viognier: floral, fruity, and very approachable! Viognier is one of the less pronounceable Rhone varieties but is one which has become a favorite “alternative” white wine for many American consumers who’ve grown bored with the ubiquitous offerings of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

This versatile wine is certain to complement just about any traditional “white wine fare” from Vichyssoise to fish.

The 2015 Vintage yielded only 114 cases.

Zinfandel Critical Mass2015 Zinfandel "Critical Mass"

The Nadeau Family Vintners’ is yet another big Nadeau Zinfandel replete with an abundance of jammy aromatics . A subtle spiciness reminiscent of crushed black pepper complements the abundant fruitiness as does the American and French oak used in the aging of this wine. The pronounced black cherry/raspberry aromas follow through to the palate where the taster enjoys fruity flavors framed with a complimentary addition of soft tannins and a very slight oak nuance.

This is clearly yet another big Zinfandel from a winery whose motto is: ”If it’s worth doing, it’s worth over-doing.”

The 2015 Vintage yielded less than 101 cases.

Sangiovese2014 Tempranillo

The Nadeau Family Vintners Tempranillo hails from the warmer plains east of Paso Robles. Dark and opulent, this racy wine is redolent of bright fruit aromas married with spicy undertones from having been aged in 20% new French oak. The long finish displays an interesting phenolic profile, which seems to span the tongue with abundant-yet-soft tannins. The wine displayed pronounced cedar/cigar box aromas earlier in its development, and more than a hint of this remains to this day.

18 months of barrel-aging (20% new French oak) has softened this sometimes hard-edged varietal into a delightful food wine which is easy to pair with just about any red wine fare.

It may take a few more years of cellaring for this wine to really develop. Admittedly, we are not experts with the Tempranillo grape, so we’ll all learn together! 84 cases of this wine were bottled.

The 2014 Vintage yielded about 84 cases.

Pinot Gris2014 Pinot Gris

This 100% Pinot Gris is one of the few “grey” wine grapes. The clusters, - when ripe - have coloring which almost makes them look like red wine grapes!  Pinot Blanc (AKA Pinot Grigio) is a delicate white wine with subdued fruitiness, which drinks great by itself yet also accompanies delicate fare and cheeses beautifully.

The 2014 Vintage yielded only 65 cases.

RVR2014 RVR

This medium-bodied blend - comprised of equal parts of Grenache, Syrah, and Counoise - is inspired by the wines crafted in the Southern Rhone Valley of France.

This elegantly-structured wine features a pleasant, round mouthfeel with dark fruit aromas and flavors. French and American oak barrel-aging has given the subtle oak tannins accompanied by a variety of spice nuances. The Grenache provides the blend with an earthiness and pepper character, and the Syrah in the blend really pulls the dark stone fruit notes forward. The Counoise lends its grapey, fruity character which really complements this blend. This wine will certainly benefit from additional aging in the cellar. We enjoy this wine with lamb and other moderately-spiced protein. For Veggie lovers, eggplant cutlets with a tomato/basil sauce would be complemented by this wine.

The 2014 Vintage yielded just 101 cases.

Viognier2014 Viognier

The Nadeau Family Vintners 2014 Viognier is a lovely white wine. It is 100% Viognier and the descriptors are classic Viognier: floral, fruity, and very approachable! Viognier is one of the less pronounceable Rhone varieties but is one which has become a favorite “alternative” white wine for many American consumers who’ve grown bored with the ubiquitous offerings of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

This versatile wine is certain to complement just about any traditional “white wine fare” from Vichyssoise to fish.

The 2014 Vintage yielded only 78 cases.

Cabernet2013 Cabernet

The Nadeau Family Vintners’ 100% 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon hails from the warmer plains East of Paso Robles. Dark and rich, this seductive wine exhibits a core of black cherries and currants, married with vanilla and faint smoke notes from oak aging. The lingering finish rewards the consumer with an aftertaste of blackberries, dark stonefruit, and soft, approachable tannins.

18 months of aging has lent this 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon lovely, soft oak tannins accompanied by the above-mentioned vanilla and toasted-oak nuances.

This approachable wine would certainly benefit from a few years of aging, however its soft tannin structure makes it easy to enjoy now as well as later.

The 2013 Vintage yielded about 66 cases.

Mixed Black2013 Mixed Black

This full-bodied blend is comprised of 61% Zinfandel, 33% Petite Sirah, and 6% Grenache – all from our Estate-grown fruit.

This wine is quite a departure from previous Mixed Black bottlings as we’ve increased the Petite Sirah and the Zinfandel percentages considerably, even more than last year’s offering. American and European oak-aging has lent the soft oak tannins accompanied by subtle spice nuances. This nicely-structured wine features a pleasant, round mouthfeel with bright fruit aromas and flavors. The Grenache provides the blend with a slight earthiness and pepper character, while the Zinfandel in the blend really pulls the fruity raspberry notes forward, and the Petite Sirah lends its’ dark color and abundant soft tannins to the finished blend. This wine will likely benefit from an additional couple of years of bottle ageing.

The 2013 Vintage yielded just 103 cases.

Sangiovese2013 Sangiovese

Sangiovese has a history dating to at least the 1500’s. This is the variety responsible for the wines of Tuscany, as well as being the principal component of the famous “Super Tuscan” blends like Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

This 100% Sangiovese is a food-friendly, medium bodied wine combines fruit forward characters, soft approachable tannins, and delightful aromatics. This wine has several years of life awaiting it for those who enjoy their wines with some extra bottle ageing. This wine will not disappoint.

The 2013 Vintage yielded only 61 cases.

Sangiovese2013 Tempranillo

The Nadeau Family Vintners 100% Tempranillo hails from the warmer plains east of Paso Robles. Dark and opulent, this racy wine is redolent of bright fruit aromas married with spicy undertones from having been aged in 20% new American oak cooperage.  The long finish displays an interesting phenolic profile, which seems to span the tongue with abundant-yet-soft tannins.  The wine displayed pronounced cedar/cigar box aromas earlier in its development, and more than a hint of this remains to this day.

18 months of barrel-aging (20% new American oak) has softened this sometimes hard-edged varietal into a delightful food wine which is easy to pair with just about any red wine fare.

It may take a few more years of cellaring for this wine to really develop.  Admittedly, we are not experts with the Tempranillo grape, so we’ll all learn together!  97 cases of this wine were bottled.

The 2013 Vintage yielded about 97 cases.

Zinfandel Epic2013 Zinfandel "Epic"

The Nadeau Family Vintners 2013 “Epic” Zinfandel is a brash, full-bodied Zin with some distinct pepper and spice notes.  Generous fruity aromas and flavors framed with a subtle hint of American Oak make this wine a definite standout.  The Epic is less “gratuitously jammy” than some of our other Zins like the Billygoat or the Critical Mass.

This 100% Zinfandel is from 2 Paso Robles “Westside” vineyards (including our Estate.)

The 2013 Vintage yielded less than 100 cases.

Zinfandel Late Harvest2013 Zinfandel Late Harvest

The Nadeau Family Vintners’ 2013 “Late Harvest” 100% Zinfandel is a deep, dense, almost brooding wine. Its dark color invites the taster to experience the abundant Black Cherry and Raspberry aromas. The first sip reveals a dense yet lush, fruity wine with plenty of residual sugar to complement any chocolate dessert as well as strong cheeses, fine cigars, and stimulating conversation.

This wine is ready to drink now, so break out your favorite dessert and enjoy!

The 2013 Vintage yielded 50 cases of 375 ml bottles.

Zinfandel Pirate2013 Zinfandel "The Pirate"

Nadeau Family Vintners’ 2012 Zinfandel “The Pirate” is a racy Zinfandel with appealing jammy, fruit-forward  aromas and flavors.  “ThePirate” is a big wine, a substantial wine, a wine of rare grandeur.  Enjoy it by itself, or with aggressively seasoned fare.

This 100% Zinfandel is from 2 West side Paso Robles vineyards (including our own.)

The 2013 Vintage yielded less than 100 cases.

Zinfandel - Billygoat2013 Zinfandel
"The Billygoat"

The Wine Nadeau Family Vintners’ 2013 “Billy Goat” Zinfandel is an expressive, exciting 100% Zinfandel (95% from the 2013 vintage and 5% from the 2014 vintage). Bold jammy aromas become bold jammy flavors as the wine opens in the mouth. Big dark fruit aromas and flavors framed with a subtle hint of American Oak make this wine a big hit.

This is indeed a bold wine, so it will stand up to some bold fare! Cajun blackened-fish, or Andouille sausage are potential playmates to this wine. Even difficult to pair foods like curry or Jamaican dishes can be mated with this brash Zinfandel. Use your imagination!

The 2013 Vintage yielded only 84 cases.
