Orchestration is a blend of 65% Syrah, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Petite Sirah. Despite playing second fiddle, the Cab is very noticeable… almost cock blocking the Syrah. At $28.00, it’s practically a steal; I’d pay up to the mid-thirties but don’t tell them that. Unfortunately the 2007 is not for sale on their site but the 2011 is, although quite different than its predecessor.
Here in Paso Robles the D’Anbino family is known for live music. They often have bands, musicians, and singers on stage in their tasting room and don’t be surprised if you see the family up on stage. They are a very talented group of people and extremely down to Earth.
They also believe in being good stewards of the land and show that by being SIP Certified. I received some insider info when I was visiting their tasting room, that is, they are making the change to biodynamic. Good for them on taking the extra steps to care for this big blue marble. Cheers!
