Ancient Peaks Oyster Ridge 2009

Member Review by EMark:

Deep dark purple in the glass. An almost floral nose--orange blossoms--with oaky things. Initial palate sensation is tart. A medium-bodied red with CS cassis/blackberry hints. Relatively light tannins. I'm glad I opened this up tonight rather than letting lay for a few years. This is a satisfactory wine right now and not particularly age-worthy. A spendy wine at $50.00 at the winery in a year ago.

It is family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast. There, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774. Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast. Read less
