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 »

  • Castle Rock Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Paso Robles earth amd structure in a supple, smooth juice. Blackberries, chocolate, pepper, mint and oak are well balanced with alcohol, tannic structure and acidity. This has a lifting, chewy aftertaste. Juicy and with medium length it begs for red meats on the grill. This Castle Rock tasting was a real eye opener for some and a re-affirmation ... Read More

  • Vinum Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon the Insider 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty blackberry aromas pour out of the glass with dried raisin and fig fruit and a soft clove spice. Very bright in the mouth, dry but with incredibly bright fruit - a good mix of blueberry, raspberry, black currant and black cherry. When the fruit moves on theres a soft cedar and licorice note left behind that is zesty and comes with a dark ea... Read More

  • VV-sorry to hear about your Pontiac! I also drank from Paso Robles yesterday. We had a 2009 Derby Fifteen 10 Red-GSM Blend. This one exceeded expectations for a $15 bottle. Nice fruity GSM nose, dark-medium ruby in the glass, raspberry fruit on entry, a little vanilla mid palate and medium to long finish. A very tasty and easy drinking wine. Hap... Read More
