Ancient Peaks Sauvignon Blanc Paso Robles 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is full of dried herbs, white peach, cut grass and sandy soil notes on the nose. Nice and clear on entry with gentle fruit that shows some dirt around the edges, but has a fine clear center of peach and almost passion fruit. The acid is well integrated here and the wine has nice flesh. It’s a touch fleshy and even has a hint of tannin on the backend, turning fairly simple on the modest finish, which shows a nice mineral character. 86pts

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
