RATINGS

97The Wine Advocate

Full-bodied, concentrated, beautifully pure and sexy GSM blend offers bombastic notes of creme de cassis, vanilla bean, licorice and crushed violets. Already complex and hard to resist

94Vinous / IWC

Heady scents of red berry liqueur, candied plum and incense, with notes of vanilla and smoky minerals emerging with air. Shows superb clarity to its palate-caressing raspberry and candied lavender flavors.

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.
