San Luis Obispo County Wine

 

San Luis Obispo is part of the larger wine Central Coast region of California, located at the halfway point between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Spanish missionaries began wine-making here over two centuries ago for ceremonial wines made from the Mission (a.k.a. Pais) grape. 
 
The area has two microclimates. Cooler conditions in the north are ideal for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay production, while the warmer south cultivates Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel. 
There are four subregions within San Luis Obispo:
Arroyo Grande Valley
Edna Valley
Paso Robles
York Mountain

  • Tablas Creek Vineyard Dianthus 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Really good Paso Rose. A bit of a darker red, there's plenty of fresh strawberry, rhubarb, bright red cherry and a touch of citrus. There's nice crisp acidity and a fairly long finish for a Rose. Overall, an excellent summer time quaff. Read More

  • Compass Point Paso Robles Merlot 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Tasting Room Quarterly Selection; Initially good and solid Merlot, strawberry leaf, red chile, lettuce leaf, then chocolate and coffee, lavender and coffee and cherry preserves and oak. Big, soft mouthfull with balanced Tannins and Acidity. Unfortunately, very quickly turned a to a rather sour, wine vinegar undrinkable glass. Hope the 2nd bott... Read More

    Wine review by jtfluitt


  • I'm finally getting around to this.  Last week we spent a few days in the Central Coast.  I wanted to do a little wine tasting, and we headed over to Edna Valley.  For some reason Edna Valley seems to be the least appreciated AVA in the Central Coast region. I really don't get it.  There are several wineries there that offer terrific products at... Read More

  • Adelaida Version White Anna's Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Solid white blend from Adelaida. The Viognier comes through on the nose with really nice floral aromatics. On the palate the Roussanne brings some butterscotch, while the Grenache Blanc brings along a creamy lemon note. Very nice acidity cleans things up along with a medium long finish. At 14.8% abv the alcohol is not shy but is well balanced ... Read More

  • Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles En Gobelet 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Fairly nice Rhone blend from Paso's Tablas Creek. The nose was dark berries with a touch of smoke and tar. The palate was a bit subdued and somewhat shutdown. There was some black cherry and ripe black plum along with a bit of cedar. The acidity was decent and the finish a tad short. May have needed some more time to breathe. Read More

  • Okay, I get to take two quick trips this month.  First, we go to San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, and Cambria (more or less in that order).  We have one night in Pismo Beach that we can go out for dinner, and we can do a very limited amount of wine tasting because we will have the kids.  So, where do we have dinner in Pismo?  If we eat out in Cambr...

  • Adelaida Zinfandel Michael's Estate Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    After a long weekend tasting Dry Creek Valley zins, came home and decided to try a Paso zin. This is a really nice wine from Adelaida with a bunch of black fruit and a touch of eucalyptus on the nose. There's blueberry pie, vanilla, blackberry, very nice acidity and some nice green plum on the palate. Read More

  • Steve Rasmussen Zinfandel Petite Sirah Estrella 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines offering. Opens with ripe red apple and cherry, then some smokey blueberry and spice, then black cherry. Fruit forward with very soft tannins and acidity. Long finish of blackberry, currant, and just a bit of spice and herb. I enjoyed how the Sirah cut some of the fruit and replaced it with notes of spice, heat, and smoke. Would b... Read More

  • Vitaluce Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a lovely garnet color in the glass, with a violet hue and great clarity. The nose is somewhat fruity, with some jammy plum and blackberry notes overlaid with some lovely earthy notes of toasted oak, cedar and a touch of mint. The taste is quite nice, with a rush of jammy fruit up front, blackberry and cassis that quickly subsides i... Read More
