2012 Pomar Junction Train Wreck Red Wine

$42.99 $45.00

Pomar Junction's premier blend, this complex wine contains selections from the best fruit they harvest. Experience complex waves of dark-red fruit, a blend of oak tannins, and a firm "Paso Robles" earthiness, as the Train Wreck crashes into your palate. Most of the fruit in this wine comes from Pomar Junction's own estate, but working closely in conjunction with adjacent vineyards properties, they grow and monitor the other fruit which is chosen for this bold red blend throughout harvest. The best barrels of single varietals were chosen by winemaker Jim Shumate and owner Matt Merrill. These barrels were then crafted into a fine wine which is unique each vintage. The beautiful, artistic silk-screen label makes this bottle of wine the perfect gift. 

 

21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Zinfandel, 21% Merlot, 21%Petite Syrah, 5% Mourvedre

About The WineMaker:  A native of Southern California, Jim's first wine job was working in the barrel room at Meridian Vineyards, where his budding career was greatly influenced by legendary winemaker Chuck Ortman. After several vintages with Meridian as Senior Lab Technician and Senior Barrel Technician, Jim moved on to become Cellar Master and Consulting Winemaker at Templeton Wine Services (where he first met Pomar Junction CEO, Dana Merrill). From 1999 to 2008, this full-service processing facility afforded Jim the opportunity to work with a wide range of varietals, styles and volumes – from small, high-end lots to several-thousand-case productions. After several vintages of hands-on teaching from fruit to bottling, Jim took the position of Winemaker at Pomar Junction in July, 2011.
