Ascension Cellars

2015 Soul Shaker Cab / Syrah

Our Flagship California Blend

About this wine

Our 2015 Soul Shaker displays a fantastic dark garnet color and offers seductive aromas of ripe currants, black cherries, pomegranate, cranberry, chocolate, exotic spices, herbs, toasted hazelnut, and hints of roasted coffee. The fruit is delivered by round, polished and dusty tannins, which explode on your palate leaving you with a mouthful of delicious juicy dark fruits. Wonderful and absolutely delicious the 2015 vintage has the potential to evolve for at least a decade. Aged for 24 months in 30% new French Oak barrels before bottling in January 2018.

Meet the Winemaker

Erick Allen

Winemaker

Ascension Cellars

Erick Allen began his winemaking career in 1991, after a two-month long trip to France and to Italy. A love of Châteauneuf-du-Papes wines from the Rhône wine region in Southern France’s and Chianti wines from Tuscany framed his future. Upon Erick’s return he was telling a friend about his new found wine muse when she said, “if you love Rhône wines you should visit Paso Robles in California’s central coast where Rhône varietals thrive”. At that moment the die was cast.
