With autumn comes our desire for heavier meals and wines with more structure. True Myth offers two wines that can make those earthy, substantial meals sing.
TrueMyth is part of the Niven family legacy located in Edna Valley in Paso Robles region of central California.
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are grown in the warmer Paso Robles region and showcase the diversity of San Luis Obispo County.
The Niven family owns and farms 50% of all Chardonnay grown in Edna Valley. Paragon Vineyard was established in 1973, and is home to the oldest continually producing Chardonnay vines in the region. This vineyard has been producing for more than 40 years.
Earthy berry aromas tempt you to take a sip, which leads to the full flavors of blackberries, cherries, and cola with a hint of cocoa. Hints of cedar and smoke linger in the mouth – a perfect autumn wine. This full-bodied Cab pairs well with steak, meaty ribs, or venison. Suggested retail - $24
This classic Chard opens with apricot and peach on the nose. The wine is well-balanced, and crisp. Tropical fruit and a hint of vanilla tease the palate while the finish is reminiscent of salted caramel. Serve with roasted chicken or grilled fish. Suggested retail - $18
