Meaning “an involuntary error” in Latin, Lapsus is a nod to the discovery of Graciano in the Paso Robles appellation. Since this varietal was originally believed to be Mourvèdre (Monastrell), it was only natural to blend the two together.
Our love letter to the Paso Robles region, Lapsus blends the infamously mistaken grapes Graciano and the Spanish clone of Mourvèdre. The vibrant acidity of Graciano is balanced with the rich earthiness of Mourvèdre. The addition of the elegant tannins of Cabernet Sauvignon and a touch of cool climate Syrah’s aromatic profile intertwine to create a velvety, opulent finish. This wine has a sophisticated density, followed by a mineral-driven freshness. Expressive of the Paso terroir and the creative nature of the region, Lapsus envelopes the palate with bold and balanced notes.
