More about this wine from Paso Robles, California
Record Family Wines really is a family affair, owned and operated by Randy and Anne Record along with their two daughters - who are fifth generation California farmers! It’s therefore no surprise that this central California vineyard produces some truly awesome grapes, which becomes truly awesome wine!

While at first this wine will hit you over the head with its meatiness, with time it grows and opens up to more delicate aromas, like floral, wet earth and flint. It smells like your fingers after you plucked rosebuds and used them to write on the cement as a kid. Plus, red apple skins, waxy melted crayons and the rind of a blood orange that has been laying in the sun on a terracotta tiled floor.
How to drink it

While...

Spending a day out on the farm eating heirloom tomatoes fresh off the vine.

Listening to...

Crash Into Me - Dave Matthews Band

Eating...

This wine will happily play with anything Ron Swanson would put in his mustachioed mouth - an 8-rib lamb rack falls into this category.

Try it with our Herb and Mustard-Crusted Rack of Lamb recipe.
