Overview of the Wine
Jason DiFrancesco has always delighted in discovery, bucking the norms, living life to the fullest and dedicating himself to something bigger than himself. Leverage Wines is not your normal wine company. The idea for Leverage Wines began as a desire to merge a longtime passion for wine and the belief that wine can enhance our enjoyment of social occasions and events, bring people together, and encourage them to do good. Inspired by this idea, Jason leveraged his existing resources and passions to create something new. Leverage Wines is a modern, digitally native artisan winery producing hand-crafted, limited production Rhône style wines. Wines that consistently receive high scores and accolades. And, the winery pays its profits forward. A portion of the profits goes to honoring and supporting important causes such as brain cancer research and patient care.
Leverage chose Paso Robles winemaker Aaron Jackson as our Winemaker. Aaron is an expert in boutique winemaking. His expertise is far-reaching, covering pretty much everything our brand needs to make the best wine possible-- from terroir, to viticulture, vineyard selection, enology and production. We are thrilled and humbled to have such a great winemaker, and all-around good guy, working with us. Cheers!

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Trajectory GSM is the flagship wine of Leverage. In the glass you're introduced to a deep ruby color with hints of blueberry, cocoa powder and plum. Lush black cherry pie crumble on the palate along with the chocolate covered blueberries, a vibrant youthful acid and hints of cherry cola . The finish combines sweet tobacco leaves and mulling spices as it lingers on your palate. In summary, this is our favorite Trajectory yet. It hits all the favorite components and checks all the boxes of what we look for in a GSM from Paso Robles. We hope you enjoy it too. Drink now through 2030
