RATINGS

97Jeb Dunnuck

...bouquet of blueberries, vanilla spice, exotic flowers, and candied orange blossom. Juicy, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured, and elegant on the palate...

96Vinous / IWC

Intense, smoke-accented dark berry liqueur, exotic spice, incense, violet and licorice aromas... Deeply concentrated, mineral-accented black/blue fruit, floral pastille and bitter chocolate flavors become livelier and take on black cardamom and mocha nuances on the back half...finishing with impressive floral- and mineral-dominated persistence and dusty tannins that lend solid closing grip.

92The Wine Advocate

...very spicy, layered nose with aromas of nutmeg, warm red and black cherries, floral potpourri, aniseed and a fruitcake note. The palate is full-bodied with a very firm frame and just enough freshness, finishing a touch warm.

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.
