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 Read more »

In each case, these were made New World style with very concentrated extraction resulting in a fruity palette and dense mouth feel.

  • Adelaida Cabernet Reserve Viking Estate 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Very nice but not great Paso bordeaux blend from Adelaida. Subtle nose with a hint of mint and shoe polish. Not overly jammy, layered or fruity on the palate but a decent amount of black berries, tar and leather. The tannins are fairly fine grained with a bit of grip, medium acidity and a medium long finish. Read More

  • Adelaida Mourvedre Estate Anna's Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty damn good for 100% mourvedre. The nose is a bit perfumey (?) with a touch of smoke. On the tongue is ripe blackberry, black cherry, a touch of gaminess, a bit of tar, fairly fine grained tannins and medium+ acidity. This begs for a big chunk of grilled or smoked red meat. Read More

  • Adelaida Viognier Anna's Estate Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very tasty Paso viognier from Adelaida. There's lemon and ripe pear on the nose. On the tongue is more ripe pear, honeysuckle, ripe stone fruits, a hint of minerality, tongue coating texture, a medium finish and medium acidity. Read More

  • Adelaida Version Red Reserve Anna's Estate Vineyard 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This is an excellent blend of Mourvedre, syrah and grenache noir. Fairly dark in the glass, silky smooth, loads of dark red and black fruit, blackberry, black cherry, ripe plum, ripe blueberry, supple fine grained tannins and a fairly long finish. Not as earthy or funky as I would expect for a GSM. This baby seems to be hitting its stride. Read More

  • Adelaida Version White Anna's Vineyard 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Solid white blend from Adelaida. The Viognier comes through on the nose with really nice floral aromatics. On the palate the Roussanne brings some butterscotch, while the Grenache Blanc brings along a creamy lemon note. Very nice acidity cleans things up along with a medium long finish. At 14.8% abv the alcohol is not shy but is well balanced ... Read More
