Joy is in the Journey
AnnEugene - is a nod to the family’s middle names – Richard Eugene Jr, Julie Ann, Alecia Ann and Nathan Eugene. Together the Kline family is the heart of AnnEugene.
Adventurers Joyce and Richard’s bucket list has led them to countless out-of-the-box places in life. From old-school trailer trips across the US to building a colonial casa on the Sea of Cortez to nurturing their Hollister vineyard and recently debuting their own wines– they derive as much joy from the journey as the destination.
That’s why they take great pride in releasing a 2015 Cabernet Franc, and a 2015 Red Blend.
AnnEugene wines are truly handmade, all the while maintaining thoughtful craftsmanship. The result is a pair of fresh, pure, expressive Bordeaux-style wines. Estate varietals include Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
2015 Estate Bedazzled Red Blend
San Benito County - Our estate-grown Bedazzled Red Blend is a well-loved traditional Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Bold and dark, this intense red blend is worthy of a deep, investigatory dive.
Pairs nicely with leaner or more savory meats, like pork or even duck. Great for everyday drinking.
2015 Estate Cabernet Franc
San Benito County - Our estate-grown 2015 Cabernet Franc offers a herbaceous, almost green aroma, and possesses an outward expression of fruit.
Pairs well with grilled steaks and chops, Portobello mushrooms, green olives, pepper, rosemary, and mint.
Their winemaker James Jelks has been dedicated to the pursuit of great wine since 2009 when he first visited Burgundy, France. Since then he has received a BS in Enology & Viticulture from UC Davis and has worked worldwide at ultra-premium wineries in California, Oregon, France, New Zealand, and Australia.
