Stephan Asseo has made wine in Burgundy, he’s made wine in Bordeaux, but he wanted more! The Terroir of Paso Robles allows him to constantly pick his estate vineyard at the peak of ripeness year after year. The freedom of knowing he can depend on the fruit allows him to gently guide the juice to the apex of it’s potential. He can also experiment more with blending here than in France, thus the Estate Cuvée, a Rhone/Bordeaux blend which would not be allowed in the old country. The Côte à Côte is a Bordeaux blend, but with the boldness and complexity only realized in the hands of a Bordeaux winemaker using Westside Paso Robles wine grapes.
