RATINGS

99Jeb Dunnuck

It's rich, full-bodied, loaded with fruit and texture, and is impeccably balanced. The purity of fruit is just about off the charts and this beauty is easily up with the crème de la crème in the vintage.

97Vinous / IWC

Sappy and energetic on the palate, offering densely packed, mineral-tinged black and blue fruit and cherry liqueur flavors and a peppery nuance that adds back-end spiciness. The floral notes comes back strong on an extremely long, focused and vibrant finish...

95The Wine Advocate

The medium to full-bodied, very silky palate spreads its wings to red, blue and black fruits with pretty floral and citrus accents, with powdery tannins and fantastic freshness to lift the long, layered finish. This is lovely!

REGION

United States, California, Central Coast, Paso Robles, Paso Robles Willow Creek District

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.
