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.

  • Steve Rasmussen El Pomar Vineyard Viognier 2013

    Snoothrank:

    A Naked Wines selection. Pale red gold color. Nutmeg and all spice and green.Under-ripe Melon and stone fruit. Medium Dry, nice acidity, and a hit or two of anise and licorice at the end. Not bad. Purchased this a while ago, so cannot remember what it cost - probably low to mid $20's at the 'Angel's' pricing.So a bit overpriced for the quality. Read More

  • Imagery Estate Winery Lagrein Paso Robles 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Bluish purple in the glass. Some herbalness mixed with red fruit on the nose. Easy to drink medium-weight red with a bit of the afore-mentioned red (plum) fruit. Fairly tight on the back of the tongue/palate where tannin and acid are detected. Quite a short aftertaste. Read More
