Virtual Tasting featuring winemaker Adam LaZarre From Broadside Winery, Paso Robles, California




Meet the legendary Adam LaZarre. Adam grew up near the Finger Lakes in upstate New York. His father filled the family wine cellar with Classified Growth Bordeaux like Lynch Bages (which you could buy back then for under $10 a bottle). With a stocked wine cellar full of priced-‐to-‐drink blockbusters, it’s no wonder that he dropped out of college to live in his parents’ basement. The U.S. Navy finally rescued him from the basement (and a few passing rock star aspirations), but not from wine.
As soon as he finished his service, he enrolled in California’s Fresno State’s Department of Viticulture and Enology to become a winemaker. On the first day of school, his professor handed him four tons of French Colombard grapes with the instruction: “If you have any questions, ask!”
As Wine Hooligans’ Director of Winemaking, Adam gives the company’s flagship brand, Broadside, his personal attention.  Making his home in Paso Robles, CA, he has hands-on relationships with vineyards and growers from whom we acquire fruit. Adam continues the Broadside ethos of producing world class wine under $20 a bottle..

2018 Broadside


Santa Margarita Vineyard

Reg Price: $ 15.99

Tasting Price: $ 12.79

"Intense aromas of baked black cherry, red berries, star anise and mace are deliciously fruit-forward on the nose of this bottling. The wine lands with a ripe quality on the palate, offering that rich and dark-cherry and mulberry character, but also presenting white pepper and minty tarragon."

2018 Broadside

Cabernet Sauvignon

Reg Price: $ 15.99

Tasting Price: $ 12.79

"Brilliant violet. Spice-accented cherry and dark berry aromas show very good clarity and a subtle smoky nuance. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and black currant flavors that become sweeter with air. Shows very good energy and clarity on the finish, which is firmed by supple, slow-building tannins."


2017 Broadside

Black Letter Cabernet Sauvignon

Reg Price: $39.99

Tasting Price: $ 31.99

"Deep and dark in the glass, this bottling from two appellations in Paso Robles shows earthy aromas of dried cherries, charred wood, dusty herbs and light licorice. There is heft to the thick palate, where a lush texture carries flavors of black plum, dark berry and peppery spice, with the acidity becoming quite apparent on the finish."
