Paso Robles Wine

Paso Robles (“Oak Pass”) is part of San Luis Obispo county in California’s Central Coast.

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.

Well this 2014 Daou Cab might be worth a try as it's in the $20-$25 range. We also visited this winery two years ago. The winery and view from the hillside was spectacular!

  • 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?
