94Jeb Dunnuck

...crisp and refreshing, with notes of under ripe pineapple, tangerine and citrus giving way to a tight, crisp 2016 that has beautiful length.

93Vinous / IWC

Powerful aromas of orange zest, apple and honeysuckle, along with a subtle overlay of smoky minerals. Silky and expansive on the palate... Finishes impressively long and smooth, displaying outstanding clarity, an echo of candied pear and a lingering floral quality.

92The Wine Advocate

...opens with beautiful fresh pears, white peaches and allspice notes with hints of honeyed toast and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with spicy stone fruit, lifted by a racy line of freshness and finishing on a honey and peach note.

91Wine Enthusiast

Plumeria, honey and poached pear aromas... The palate is both tropical and extremely fresh, with pear flesh and light guava flavors wrapped up in a bountiful acid and grippy texture.


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.
