Field Recordings Cabernet Blend Hinterlands 2014

This inky-black crowd pleaser is extremely smooth and easy to drink. The bouquet is packed with notes of black cherries, plums, and juicy red berries. Jammy black fruit and intense mocha flavors tie off this remarkably serious and nuanced wine. Enjoy over the next 3-4 years.

Field Recordings Winery

Field Recordings is 34-year old winemaker Andrew Jones' personal catalog of the people and places he values most. Spending his days as a vine nursery fieldman planning and planting vineyards for farmers all over California, Andrew is sometimes offered small lots of their best fruit on the side. Having stood in just about every vineyard on the Central Coast, he has a keen eye for diamond in the rough: sites that are unknown or under-appreciated but hold enormous untapped potential. As friendships are made and opportunities are embraced, Andrew produces small quantities of soulful wine from these unusual, quiet vineyards.
