CUISINEIST Holiday Gift Guide: Pomar Junction Vineyard & Winery 2010 “Train Wreck” Estate Red Blend

 

We know it’s not quite the fall yet but its never too early to think about the Holiday Season. If you really think about it, the season will be upon us rather quickly.

 

The Pomar Junction Vineyard & Winery 2010 “Train Wreck” red blend is a full-bodied wine that is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Syrah, Syrah and Zinfandel.  Big Layers of intense black currants and dark stone fruits meld with soft tannins for a wine that pairs perfectly with many holiday dishes like prime rib, pork crown roast, or even hearty lasagna.  The silk-screen label depicts the steam engine wreck of 1895 at Paris’s Gare Montparnasse, making this wine a terrific gift for wine lovers, train lovers and history buffs alike.

Pomar  Junction Vineyard and Winery  is owned  and operated by the Merrill Family in the Paso Robles AVA, Pomar Junction Vineyard & Winery showcases eight generations of Central Coast farming through deeply characterful estate wines.  With a rich heritage of sustainable practices in the vineyard and minimal intervention in the cellar, Pomar Junction guides estate fruit from vine to glass with a narrow focus on purity of flavor and varietal integrity.

The winery name refers to the Merrill Family’s concurrent lineage of railroad engineers as well as to bygone days when the Southern Pacific Railroad was responsible for the development of the picturesque Central Coast.  For more information about Pomar Junction Vineyard & Winery, call (805) 238-9944, or visit www.PomarJunction.com.  The Pomar Junction vineyard and tasting room are located at 5036 S.
