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.

  • Angeline Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty raspberry and cherry aromas with an earthy note of very light smoke and cinnamon. This delivers strong fruit flavors of strawberry, mixed berry and cherry cola with earthy minerality towards the finish that supports the spice and good structure holding up the wine. An enjoyable and approachable bottle of wine. Read More

Even so, still got a bit of earthiness and some rhubarb coming up from the glass. On the tongue ... Read More

  • I've been drinking a lot of Paso Creek (merlot and cabernet), Robert Hall (cabernet) and Francis Coppola (pinot noir). I need to branch out, but every time I'm looking at an unexplored bottle, one of these favorites lures me back in... what are you guys drinking from the region that I should try?
