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 »

Paso Robles on Snooth

  • Caliza Paso Robles Cohort 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Thick and rich ripe blackberry and black cherry aromas with some earth and leather on the nose and a dash of black pepper with a touch of heat. Very smooth on the entry followed by a bite of tannin filling the mouth with some cranberry and black cherry. Some licorice sneaks in behind blueberry as the tannins linger well into the finish.

  • Caliza Sidekick Paso Robles 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A fair bit of vanilla and hazelnuts on the nose with some honey and gooseberry. Smooth and full mouthfeel with a rich, nutty profile showing the clean fruit underneath and a touch of honey and butter. Read More

  • Caliza Kissin' Cousins Paso Robles 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Light nectarine with floral aromas with a touch of stone fruit and flinty acidity. Nice and smooth flavors, full and ripe and rich and emollient with peach and nectarine and a layer of minerality - enough acidity to really buoy the palate and integrate nicely with some toast and some dried apricot.

  • Caliza Sympatico 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Ripe cherry fruit on the nose with a fair bit of spice, cinnamon, and touches of black pepper. Quite spicy and rich with a really fresh and ripe acidity. The leather and tobacco notes are just beginning to develop; an indication of just how age-worthy this wine is. But, it's drinking great right now. The ripe red berry fruits continue to deliv...

  • Caliza Pink Paso Robles 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Light and fruity strawberry and watermelon aromas. Just a touch of perceived sweetness due to the freshness of the acidity but it's nice and dry with strawberry and watermelon on the palate as well. The finish is rife with candied cherries. Read More

  • Bishop's Peak Elevation 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Quite attractive purple color. Dried fruit nose. On the tongue, the first impression is blueberry. Maybe a bit of black plum. Fairly sedate winemost cabernet sauvignon characteristics are subdued. Little or no tannic dryness. Good acid makes for a reasonably good sipper. Not offensive, but not particularly memorable.

  •  there’s a reason why nobody ever tried to pull out these old vines. ... ... Foothils, Sonoma County, Paso Robles. If a bottle is labeled "Napa County," then at least 75% of the grapes must be sourced from Napa County. A wine made from grapes of different sources, none of which meets the 75% bar, would be labeled "California." A wine can be vin...

  • Dr. Jebediah Drinkwell's Meritage 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Decent red blend for the price. Easy drinking, but could have been better balanced. The dryness of the cab franc, malbec, and petit verdot take over a but too much. Read More

  • Tablas Creek Vineyard Dianthus 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Really good Paso Rose. A bit of a darker red, there's plenty of fresh strawberry, rhubarb, bright red cherry and a touch of citrus. There's nice crisp acidity and a fairly long finish for a Rose. Overall, an excellent summer time quaff. Read More
