RATINGS

91Wine Enthusiast

...offers red currant and black plum alongside an earthy elegance of gravel and wood on the nose. It's well balanced on the palate, with flavors of ripe red fruit, wood spice, dried herb and tobacco.

90Vinous / IWC

Ripe cherry and blackcurrant aromas are enlivened by a peppery nuance and a sexy floral note... Supple in texture and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated dark fruit flavors that show good energy and a subtle mocha accent. Dusty tannins sneak in late, adding shape to persistent, dark berry-tinged finish.

REGION

United States, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles

Paso Robles AVA is midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, and it is considered one of the West Coast’s most exciting winemaking regions. With its hot, sometimes searingly dry and sunny weather, it is especially good country for growing warm climate grapes such as Syrah, Grenache and Mourvedre. Because many Paso Robles wineries have been successful with blending these grapes into Rhone Valley-style wines, it is known as the Rhone zone of California. The AVA was created in 1983 and there are 32,000 vineyard acres. In late 2014 the AVA was divided into 11 smaller sub-appellations, so starting with 2015 vintages labeling will become more specific on Paso Robles wines, which will now also list sub-appellations. Located in San Luis Obispo County, Paso Robles, the town and its surrounding area, was traditionally a farming and ranching region. But from a few dozen wineries in the early 1990s to more than 200 today, the area is quickly becoming known for wine and risk-taking winemakers.

TYPE

Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
