THE COLLECTION

The Fabre brothers set out to create a “different & eclectic” collection of wines to add to the wide variety of offerings in Paso Robles by combining their French family heritage with the power of Paso Robles fruit.

“These Benom releases are made by brothers Arnaud and Guillaume Fabre. Guillaume is best known for his work previously at L’Aventure and now at Clos Solene and is unquestionably one of the rising superstars in Paso Robles. These are rich, powerful wines that stay balanced and pure, and they’re well worth seeking out.”
Jeb Dunnuck

“Brothers Guillaume (Clos Solène) and Arnaud Fabre, natives of Narbonne, in France’s Languedoc region, have solidified their small project’s position in the upper level of Paso Robles wine.Those wines are impeccably made (which will come as no surprise to anybody who has sampled Guillaume’s work over the years). A sixth-generation winemaker, his wines here emphasize sharp detail as well as depth and intensity, showing some new oak presence when the wines are young but balanced with deeply flavored though not heavy fruit character.”

2019 ORIGIN

100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Sold Out

Our flagship cuvée, Origin was designed to showcase Cabernet Sauvignon’s outstanding potential here in Paso Robles. Its 5th vintage features four of the top Cabernet producers in the area with fruit from Hawks Hill Ranch, Parrish Family Vineyard, Jada & Gateway. Fermentation this year utilized a combination of stainless steel and concrete tanks with gentle pumpovers twice a day. Once barreled down, this wine matured for 18 months in 70% new French oak.

Dark ruby in color, Origin shows gorgeous notes of red cherry, plum, leather and toasted nutmeg. Medium to full in body, it’s silky in texture from start to finish with fine yet gritty tannins that will drink beautifully for the next 15+ years.

2019 LES DEUX FRÈRES

52% Grenache, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon & 22% Tempranillo
Sold Out

The most delicate wine in our collection, this blend is designed to highlight the feminine characteristics of Grenache, while using Cabernet & Tempranillo to bring in a masculine structure. Grenache hails from G2 & Paderewski with Tempranillo coming from Caelesta. Stainless steel fermentation with gentle pumpovers twice a day ensured delicate extraction before transferring to 5% new French oak for 18 months.

Les Deux Frères’ bright ruby coloring is followed up by raspberry jam, red and black berries, baking spice and licorice. Light to medium in body, delicately structured, fresh and bright with a lingering finish of cocoa & crème de cassis that will develop beautifully for the next 10+ years.

2019 LAPSUS

30% Graciano, 29% Mourvèdre, 26% Syrah & 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
Sold Out

The second vintage of this blend saw a big shift – trading 2018’s Grenache for a cool climate Syrah from Spanish Springs to bring more richness & texture. Mourvèdre was selected from G2 while Graciano hailed from Paperstreet. Once processed, each lot fermented in stainless steel where they saw gentle pumpovers twice a day before being barreled down in 40% new French oak for 18 months.

The rich violet hue of Lapsus opens up to sensuous notes of violet, jasmine, red fruit and green tea. Dense yet beautifully balanced, it is medium to full bodied on the palate with a finish of white pepper and candied orange peel. This wine is drinking incredibly well in its youth and will continue to develop for another 15+ years.

2019 MUZE

45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Mourvèdre & 13% Syrah
Sold Out

Pouring a beautiful deep ruby color, this wine coast the glass in opulence.

On the nose there is an ostentatious mingling of spices: a pinch of cloves melds with ripe red berries and dried plums. Cool climate Syrah entices with it’s deep bouquet while the intriguing mushroom notes of Mourvèdre cascade to damp earth and the rich complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Mouthwatering minerality quickly turns into richer earth and spice flavors before crowning with lighter notes of burnt orange peel and anise, reminiscent of Grand Mariner. Time will only increase the captivating nature of this wine.

2019 HOC

52% Carignan, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon & 15% Syrah
Sold Out

A vibrant crimson in the glass with purple glimmers in the sunlight. 

The nose is deeply floral with notes of violet and rose petal welcoming cherries and rhubarb. The bouquet eventually softens into fig and earthy notes as it warms up. 

On the palate there are alluring savory elements from the Carignan, the notes of plum quickly make way for herbaceous spice before ultimately finishing on roasted almonds and Tonka bean.

2021 CONTRAST

74% Chardonnay, 26% Sauvignon Blanc
$60

This vintage shines in the glass, a very enticing hay color scintillating with streaks of green.

The nose is reminiscent of fresh apples, with a touch of guava. Once the initial aromas settle, the nose is awakened by notes of lemon swirl.

On the palate this delicate yet minerally driven wine is lively with bright acidity and notes of pineapple and fresh exotic fruits. The texture is fresh and lively with a distinct but pleasant touch of chalky minerality.

2021 L’ESSOR

78% Grenache, 22% Cabernet Sauvignon
$40

The 2021 L’Essor is liquid Rose gold. The nose is awakened by fresh strawberries and Meyer lemons before finishing on a touch of dark spice.

On first sip, fresh fruit gives way to bright acidity and falls into notes of alluring spices. The Paso limestone creates an envelopment of crisp minerality lifted by ripe spring berries before a refreshing flow of sea foam salinity washes over the palate.
