Adelaida Version Red Paso Robles Anna's Vineyard 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Mouvedre 44%, Grenache 23%, Syrah 20%, Cinsault 13% Inspired by the blends of Frances Chateauneuf du Pape region, this wine shows the savory, cedar-cigar box flavors of the leading player, Mourvedre. With a bit of time in the glass the wine begins revealing its full personality, a cross between blue and black berries, cracked pepper, sagebrush, fine Italian espresso beans and the indefinable minerality of its indigenous limestone soils. Drink now through 2017. 907 cases produced. Not yet reviewed; 2008 vintage rated 91 points by Wine Enthusiast.

Adelaida's wines begin at the roots, pushing through the rocky limestone soils on the west side of Paso Robles on California's Central Coast. The winery, which originated in 1981, is located 14 miles east of the Pacific Ocean at an elevation of 1,800 feet in the Santa Lucia mountain chain. The winery is a vineyard driven operation that considers itself a foremost proponent of the potential of west side Paso Robles. Adelaida's wild and rugged mountainside vineyards are loaded with limestone and calcareous shale. According to winemaker Jeremy Weintraub, "these characteristics cause the vines to strengthen. This results in added stress on the vines, which lowers the yields but produces more intensely flavored fruit". In keeping with the winery's sustainable philosophy, the vineyards are not tilled, encouraging native grasses, wild sage and rosemary to flourish between the rows. Adelaida produces from its own Estate vineyards and a select group of contracted vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles. Amongst its holdings are the two principal estate properties, Viking Vineyard and HMR Vineyard. The mighty Viking Vineyard was planted in 1992 and is now producing great Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The historic HMR Vineyard was pioneered by Dr. Stanley Hoffman in the early 60s. Devoted care and substantial investment have returned these 40+ year old vineyards to their former glory. Intense, high quality wines are convincing first-time tasters and experts alike. Read less

Very nice red blend from Paso Robles. Dark red cherry, plum and a bit of spice. Not much acidity, a little flabby but a fairly long finish. Had this 2009 along side the 2010 and 2008 and this was the least favorite but on its own still an excellent wine.
