The Way Back is a collaboration between Tim and Jenn Wanner (Colorado Wine peeps) and Kenny and Lynn Likitprakong (Hobo Wine Co., etc.) The project came to light over several family surf trips. No one has any real skills beyond making and selling wine, but we all wanted to do something together so came The Way Back.
The goal is to produce a real wine at an everyday price point that doesn’t break any budget. The vineyards are sustainably farmed, the winemaking is straight-forward. All native yeast ferments in stainless steel, aging in 3-5 year old barrels, and bottling in a basic, nothing added package.
Intense candied red fruit and pencil shavings aromas are followed by a palate that is fresh and balanced. A lighter style cabernet, great with burgers.
