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.

  • Ancient Peaks Renegade Red Blend Santa Margarita Ranch Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Dry and dusty earth notes on the nose mask the fruit but after a few shakes they open, showing ripe strawberry and raspberry notes. The palate is all fruit on the attack, with blueberry, cranberry, strawberry and raspberry rushing in followed by juicy acidity, hot spice and earthy licorice and eucalyptus notes following towards the finish with m...

  • Onx Wines Mad Crush Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Smoky, red berry and red cherry aromas with a dash of heat and a pop of black pepper spice. Full and robust palate of ripe cherry, strawberry, raspberry and red licorice, this is a touch imbalanced at times but does demonstrate good ripe fruit and a bit of chocolate on the finish. Read More

  • Peachy Canyon Cabernet Syrah Paso Robles 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dark black cherry, blackberry, cinnamon, clove and vanilla spice aromas with creamy milk chocolate. Richly textured, broadly structured and commanding on the palate, this starts with black olive and leads directly into dark chocolate, blackberry, black currant and bramble fruit, leading finally into a black pepper and licorice finish that linger...

    Sultry, smoky and spicy aromas of savory earth and cracked black pepper with notes of black cherry and blackberry. Zesty mixed berry palate is quite fruity with more red fruit notes of cranberry, cherry and strawberry with an herbal hint of licorice and dark spice, a creamy texture on the finish, and a lively acidity throughout. Easy and approac... Read More

  • Le Vigne Cuore Della Vigna Estate Paso Robles 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Savory soy sauce and beef stew aromas with intriguing minerality and ripe cherry, mixed berry and baking spice. In the mouth it's considerably cooler, bringing milk chocolate and zesty spice, a zip of acidity towards the finish and a palate of fruit flavors, mostly raspberry, cherry, blueberry and cranberry. Fruit forward and approachable, with ... Read More

  • Hearst Ranch Winery Randolph Red Blend Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    On the nose there's a hint of earth and light smoke with loads of fresh fruit notes of cherry, strawberry and cranberry with a small earthy whiff of savory and meaty spice. More expressive fruit on the palate, cherry, raspberry and creamy milk chocolate on the mid palate with an herbal almost minty note towards the finish that is glazed with pep... Read More

  • Justin Vineyards & Winery Savant Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Savory and spicy on the nose and quite concentrated with dark black currant and blackberry preserve notes and powerful sweet spice. Richly flavorful and full on the palate, still this is deceptive and seems lighter than it is. Flavors are well developed and complex with dark chocolate and raspberry flavors set against darker black cherry and bla... Read More

  • Margate Paso Robles Red Blend 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Another Tasting Room selection. Not much here. A bit too fruit forward and one dimensional for my tastes. Having this once is enough. Description from Tasting Room site is pretty accurate - just not much here...'This flavorful red shows freshness and an attractive core of ripe cherry and plum characters mingling with darker, stewed-fruit nuances...
