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 »

    Awesome flavor gradient and structure - dense cherry jam, red ripe apple in middle and light jasmine on top. Big wine but not heavy. Crispy wood ending. Very nice for this price! Read More

  • Lone Madrone Tannat Paso Robles 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very pretty purple color of more red than blue. Dried fruit/berries on the tongue, though, not with noticeable annoying sweetness. When I drink tannat I prepare myself for an onslaught of tannin. Thats what its known for, right? However, the tannin in this wine is amazingly sedate. Yes, I can detect it, but there is significantly more tanni... Read More

  • EM - Good to hear there is a good Tannat out there.  We have a few in our ... winery.  Speaking of Paso Robles, we had another blind wine tasting party last night at a different house (one much closer to us in Burke, Virginia).  Sixteen wines (all Cabernet Sauvignon) were poured and that was probably too many but it certainly was a good time. ...

  • Lone Madrone the Will 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Wow, big red plum/cherry flavors on the tip of the tongue. Almost an unsweetened chocolate thing mid-palate. Very light on both tannin and acid. Not a particularly sophisticated wine, but something that will go well with burgers or pizza. 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?
