96Vinous / IWC

Expressive aromas of dark berry preserves, succulent flowers, licorice and smoky minerals; cola and herb nuances build in the glass. Broad, alluringly sweet and subtly chewy in texture, offering intense blackberry, cherry cola, fruitcake and mocha flavors and a suave touch of candied flowers. Shows a compelling marriage of depth and energy and betrays no rough edges...impressively long, with lingering floral and mineral notes.

95-97Jeb Dunnuck

Cassis, blackberries, violets, bouquet garni, and pepper all flow to a full-bodied, deep, rich, concentrated red with supple, ripe tannins, a rock star of a mid-palate, and a great finish.


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.
