Vintage: 2007 10/16/2008

When developer Robert Hall moved to Paso Robles in 1994, he was planning to retire. He bought some land and planned to plant a vineyard. But it wasn’t long before he was expanding his plantings and producing wine. Hall decided to focus on Cabernet Sauvignon and Rhone-style wines - two of Paso Robles’ strengths. Blanc de Robles is winemaker Don Brady’s white Rhone blend, marrying roughly equal amounts of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc, along with a dash of Picpoul Blanc. It’s a wine that’s bright and racy, with juicy white peach and pear flavors, accented by a slight floral note and a hint of mineral on the finish. The wine is a little creamy, from daily lees-stirring, but oak doesn’t intrude much into the flavor profile: 59 percent of the wine was fermented in neutral oak, while the rest was in stainless steel. Blanc de Robles, which sells for $20, is a zesty little number that will complement shrimp or other shellfish, or perhaps a lighter chicken dish.

Vintage: 2006 10/16/2008

2006 Robert Hall Winery Blanc de Robles, Paso Robles – Robert Hall Winery is best known for its reds – actually, that could probably be said for most Paso Robles wineries – but the winery also produces some outstanding, elegant whites, particularly this Rhone-style blend. Blanc de Robles – the white counterpart to the winery’s popular Rhone de Robles red -- is a blend of mostly Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, along with a smidgen of Picpoul Blanc, and the fruit comes from the Hall Ranch vineyards. The 2006 vintage was one of extremes in Paso Robles: brutal, record-setting heat in July, followed by an extremely cool August. Despite all that, winemaker Don Brady managed to put together a very well-balanced, fresh white. Part of the blend was fermented in neutral barrels, with the rest in stainless steel. The wine was aged for four months, with daily lees-stirring, and the blend was assembled just before bottling. The result is a lovely, fleshy wine with ripe white peach and green apple flavors, lively acidity and just a whisper of vanilla/oak. Drink the 2006 Blanc de Robles with seafood pasta or with a soft cheese like brie.
