  • Unfortunately, this winery is now closed, due to the economic crisis. I'm disappointed.

  • Unlike with my pick for Wine of the Year, which is a wine that has moved me and changed my view of wine in some way, shape or form, I award my Winery of the Year selection to a winery that has had consumer interests at top of mind.This can be seen as a vague statement in that most wineries have their consumers’ interests at heart in one way or a...

  • Mid Life Crisis Winery Roo Boy Red 2006


    This is my desert island wine. If I could drink this for the rest of my life I would not be upset. Controlled bomb o'fruit. Perfect for the first snowy night of this winter as it really warms the soul.Paired it with kung pao marinated skirt steak. Could not have paired better. Read More

  • From another thread:GregT: " Oh it makes my ears bleed. I need to go and drink a bottle of Sang de Cailloux"Dmcker: "So what's the 'terroir' for the blood of stones? Great naming for a domaine. Too bad you can't really get away with that type of name in English. Guess we have to suffice with 'Big House' or 'Suckfizzle' or '10 Minutes by Tractor'... Read More

  • Midlife Crisis Syrah Blend Paso Robles Crisis 2006


    luscious elegant purple-y goodness everywhere. great acidity from the syrah and smoothness from the cabernet. bordeaux influences all over. hence no fruit bomb. can age for 5 years minimum and definitely needs a 1.5 hour decant. Read More

  • Midlife Crisis Sangiovese 2006


    So I guess this is what happens when you take a classic old-world grape and bring it to the new. sangiovese meets australian shiraz fruit bomb. not at all what I was expecting, which is a good thing. I love not getting what I expect when the result is still delicious. Went great with ravioli with red sauce. Read More

  • Midlife Crisis Merlot Paso Robles 2006


    old-world all the way. very bordeaux-like in its approach with the vegetal component of a Chinon. not much fruit except for a lite black cherry soda note on the finish. nice rich mouthfeel. really good wine with pork roast and baked beans. It would get a higher rating if it was half the price. Read More

  • Midlife Crisis Zinfandel Paso Robles 2006


    classic zin. tastes like it should cost $10 more. this sucker takes 16% alcohol and wraps it nicely with very little heat. nice and jammy. Read More
