RATINGS

92Vinous / IWC

...Primary black and blue fruits, potpourri, peppery spices and a subtle hint of vanilla on the deeply perfumed nose. Sweet, concentrated boysenberry and cherry cola flavors spread out steadily in the mouth, picking up spiciness and a touch of candied flowers on the back half. Lush, broad and seamless in texture, finishing with impressive energy and smooth tannins that contribute shape and gentle grip.

...Lots of leafy herbs, pepper, bay leaf, smoke tobacco and black fruits. Rich, concentrated, chewy and moderately tannin, it's another serious mouthful of fruit to enjoy...

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.
