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 »

  • Tablas Creek Vineyard Esprit de Beaucastel Rouge 2008


    Really enjoying this excellent Tablas Esprit de Beaucastel! Really dark, chewy berry fruit on the nose with some savoriness. Loads of ripe, crushed black cherry, notes of black licorice that just go on and on, a touch of mint, and a bit of freshly tanned leather. There are well resolved, fine tannins, tongue coating viscosity, medium plus acidit... Read More

  • I guess that since you are the originator of this thread, you get to make up ... technically, your streak on Paso Robles wines may still be intact.  According to the label in your picture grapes for that Neverland wine were sourced from Santa Barbara County.  Paso Robles is located in San Luis Obispo Count Read More

  • Had this 2011 Oso Libre Carnal on Sunday. We visited this small Paso Robles winery in 2014 and were impressed with the QPR of these wines. This is a nice blend of 41% Grenache, 41% Syrah and 18% Mourvedre, very tasty with mixed fruit and spice. Powerful nose with some complexity mid palate and a long finish. May have to get us some more.   Read More

  • Robert Hall Syrah 2013


    Flavors of homogenized colored berries. A little unbalanced to the acid side. Some surprising heat on the edges of the tongue. For $12 an OK wine, but, certainly, not an aspirational wine. Read More

Well this 2014 Daou Cab might be worth a try as it's in the $20-$25 range. We also visited this winery two years ago. The winery and view from the hillside was spectacular! The wine on the other hand was just OK to... Read More
