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 Esprit de Tablas Rouge Paso Robles 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Extremely fine Rhone blend from Paso. Tablas Creek is one of our fav's and this hits all the right notes. Light in body but full of tart cherry, blackberry, green plum, minerality, a hint of smoke and nice acidity. The tannins are firm but fine grained. This is still a youngster and a bit tight, a couple years in the bottle should do it well. Read More

  • Blackburn Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    A bit dusty and meaty on the nose with candied red fruit, candied watermelon notes and some raw wood notes with latex base notes. A bit of a weird we in the mouth with very little upfront fruit followed by building flavors of strawberries and slightly unripe fruit on the backend that carries with it some green fruit acids. Round and sticky on th... Read More
