95Jeb Dunnuck

...fabulous notes of honeyed white peach, citrus blossom, salty minerality, and hints of buttered toast in a rich, powerful, yet oh so seamless and elegant package.

94The Wine Advocate

...aromas of crisp apple, peach, honeycomb and white flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, glossy and textural, with nice cut and energy and a chalky, penetrating finish.

93Vinous / IWC

Powerful, mineral-accented aromas of orange zest, melon and pungent flowers, along with a smoky lees undertone. Broad and fleshy on the palate, offering impressively concentrated citrus fruit and honeydew flavors and a sweetening touch of vanilla... Finishes with excellent clarity, an echo of candied citrus and a persistent chamomile note.


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.
