Hearthstone’s 2006 ‘Slipstone’ red wine is a Rhône-style blend of Grenache (63.5%) and Syrah (36.5%) from the winery’s estate vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles. The site’s dynamic weather conditions, hilly topography, and desirable limestone soils create the ultimate location for producing the big, concentrated, flavorful wines that the region has become renowned for.
Awarded the Gold Sweepstakes Award at the San Diego International Wine Competition, the Hearthstone 2006 ‘Slipstone’ is a big crowd pleaser! The wine is deep ruby in color and the Grenache, being the predominate variety in this wine, shows through with strong white pepper and earthy aromas. The Syrah adds a new dimension with a little wild game and smokey characteristics and the palate complements these notes with licorice, peppercorn and herbs of sage, polished with flavors of ripe plum.
