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.

  • Adelaida Mourvedre Estate Anna's Vineyard 2011


    Pretty damn good for 100% mourvedre. The nose is a bit perfumey (?) with a touch of smoke. On the tongue is ripe blackberry, black cherry, a touch of gaminess, a bit of tar, fairly fine grained tannins and medium+ acidity. This begs for a big chunk of grilled or smoked red meat. Read More
