Paso Robles Wine

Paso Robles (“Oak Pass”) is part of San Luis Obispo county in California’s Central Coast. The first grapes in the area were grown by Franciscan Friars in the late 1700s, producing wine for ceremony and brandy export. Following  a period of annexation by Mexico beginning in the 1830s, European settlers arrived in the 1850s following California’s statehood. One of these was French pioneer Pierre Hypolite Dallidet, who established the area’s first commercial vineyard. English settler Henry Ditmas arrived soon after and planted the region’s first Zinfandel and Muscat. Many others soon followed, establishing wineries that are still run by their descendants.
 
Paso Robles also has its place in Wild West history. Drury James, uncle of outlaws Frank and Jesse James is one of the co-founders of the town, the original hot springs hotel and La Panza Ranch. Jesse would often visit the hot springs to soothe his lungs, while his companions no doubt drank the local Read more »

  • Adelaida Version Red Reserve Anna's Estate Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This is an excellent blend of Mourvedre, syrah and grenache noir. Fairly dark in the glass, silky smooth, loads of dark red and black fruit, blackberry, black cherry, ripe plum, ripe blueberry, supple fine grained tannins and a fairly long finish. Not as earthy or funky as I would expect for a GSM. This baby seems to be hitting its stride. Read More

  • HMR Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 1982

    Snoothrank:

    Disappointing bricking coloring forecasts oxidation. Somewhat off-putting nose--musty, fungal. The proof though is in the mouth. Actually a pretty good wine. Light blackberry fruit on the tip of the tongue. Still firm tannin. Reasonable acid. However, after about 30 minutes of air, this one fell apart. A watery mess. Read More

  • I've been drinking a lot of Paso Creek (merlot and cabernet), Robert Hall (cabernet) and Francis Coppola (pinot noir). I need to branch out, but every time I'm looking at an unexplored bottle, one of these favorites lures me back in... what are you guys drinking from the region that I should try?
