Paso Robles Wine

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

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.

    Drinkable, but a bit harsh. Works ok as a second or third bottle opened at a dinner or party. Read More

  • David Bruce Petite Sirah Central Coast 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Ugh. While I've really enjoyed David Bruce's Estate Petite Sirah, this one was over-extracted with an astringent finish for me. I gave it a chance to open up, but it never did, so I didn't finish the bottle. Read More

  • Norman Vineyards Zinfandel Paso Robles the Monster 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This is my idea of all the qualities a Zin should possess. Tons of jammy fruit with big boldness and complexity. So much to chew on and yet approachable for the non-Zin lovers. Yum. Read More

  • Coral Mustang Tempranillo Paso Robles Rosé Vista Creek 2005

    Deep black fruit aromas with a hint of sweetness, and a bit of heat but not unpleasant. Rustic oak and blackberry flavors, soft tannins, smooth and pleasant, with a hint of eucalyptus on the finish. Good value! Read More

    This smells a touch sweet at first then very fruity and very Tempranillo-like with a nice sandy, dusty soil tone and a broad array of herbal, tobacco and floral background aromatics. There is a touch of VA here and it is a bit dirty, but in a good way making this penetrating and complex. A little sweet on entry but nice acidity and well judged t... Read More
