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.

  • Tablas Creek Red Rhone Blend Paso Robles Côtes de Tablas 2003

    Snoothrank:

    This was a pleasant surprise. For less than $10, it provided quite a few classic Bordeaux flavors. Great ripe cherry, red plums, cassis and just a hint of leather come through on both the nose and palate. Ripe and full in the mouth. A nice old world style with a hint of new world fruit. Read More

  • Bonny Doon Vineyard Viognier California Doux 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Bonny Doon's Viognier Doux is syrupy sweet. Pear, apricots, and tropical fruits on the nose. Pear flavor dominates. There are also flavors of apricot and pinneaple and just a hint of honey. This wine is a little unbalanced as it is so sweet. Does not compare well to a decent ice wine, but at its price point it is a good dessert wine that wi... Read More
