Producers of Petite Sirah need to take note: there's a young gun out there who's going to show you some new moves! Winemaker Aaron Jackson is one amazing guy! He fully commits to whatever Read More...
the task at hand is. So being the hardcore surfer that he is, you can imagine how dedicated to winemaking Aaron must be when he has to leave those firing Central Coast point breaks to head for the vineyards! His wines have been staples at our store for years, and it's amazing how he can make Petite Sirah taste so good, keep it complex yet easy to drink, and sell such a tasty wine for a reasonable price!

Aaron's flagship wine is always a blend of his very best barrels of Petite Sirah. A blend of 5 vineyards all grown on calcareous/limestone soils, the aromatics show smoked meat, black pepper, lavender, dark chocolate, blueberry, and melted blackberry fruits. The palate steers more towards fresh fruit rather than the dried fruit side, with wild blackberry, bramble, and blueberry. Peppered beef, espresso, toasty oak, and spice hit on the mid palate before the finish sing on with sweet but gravelly tannins. A dose of Syrah adds mid palate and spice. Only 323 cases produced!

ANCIENT PEAKS 11 RENEGADE
$15.98
Quantity

This wine floored us from the very first sip! Ancient Peaks sits in the Paso Robles appellation, 22 miles south of the city itself, and just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Here, Read More...
the surrounding peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range act as a gateway between one region to the south that is exceedingly ocean-cooled, and another to the north that is much, much warmer (sometimes downright hot!). When the days heat up in the areas north and east of Margarita Vineyard, the air rises to create a vacuum that pulls marine breezes and fog inland over the peaks, and right through the vineyard. This means the fruit gets ripe, without any “off” flavors, yet the cooling afternoon breezes help the resulting wine to retain freshness and acidity. Renegade is a blend of 62% Syrah, 28% Petit Verdot, and 10% Malbec. The wine opens with extravagant aromas of black fruit, blueberry, vanilla bean and smoked bacon. Flavors of black cherry, black currant and wild raspberry cascade along a plush, mouthfilling texture along with trailing notes of cola, spice and toasty oak. Power yields to elegance on the finish, with clean structure and smooth tannins leading the way.

Quantity

Proprietor and winemaker Paul Wilkins came out of the gate screaming with his 2007s, and subsequent vintages have the same exciting results! The Law of Return Grenache is comprised Read More...
of 100% free run juice...NO PRESSED JUICE! Very few producers employ this practice as it increases overall costs dramatically. But Paul feels that this gets him the best possible wine he can put in the bottle, and considering the price, it kind of makes you wonder why others charge more, yet their quality isn't as high???

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91-93 POINTS - "Ripe, full-throttle and serious efforts, these wines are made by Paul Wilkins of Alta Maria Vineyards. Showing lots of stem, pepper and earth, the 2010 Grenache Law of Return is much deeper and concentrated than the perfumed 2010 Grenache Dare. Ripe, voluptuous and brilliantly pure, with layers of black fruits, smoked meats, licorice and pan drippings, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, rich feel, solid mid-palate depth and a blockbuster finish. It’s a ripe, decadent effort geared for drinking over the coming 5-6 years. Drink 2014-2020."
BARREL 27 10 BULL BY THE HORNS
$27.95
Quantity

This is a powerhouse blend of Petite Verdot, Syrah, and Tempranillo that possesses a seductive nose of red and black currants powdered with cocoa, blueberry and black plum liqueur Read More...
undercurrents set off by wild spice notes of star anise, rose petal, licorice and fennel. On the palate, this freight train of a wine delivers loads of spiced plum and dark berry fruit, supported by layers of Mexican chocolate, Chinese black tea, and blood orange all framed in spice notes of caraway, toasted vanilla, cigar box and sweet black pepper. The pure, powerful finish stretches on to the horizon supported by great acidity and well developed tannins. Some Paso Robles locals say this is possibly the World's Best Steak Wine!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - The 2010 Bull by the Horns is also smoking good. A blend of Syrah, Tempranillo and Petit Verdot, it’s loaded with smoky berry fruit, leather, cedar box, pepper and licorice aromas and flavors. This medium to full-bodied beauty has loads of character, excellent overall balance and a finish that pumps on loads of fruit and richness while staying focused and dry. Enjoy it over the coming 5-7 years. Drink now-2020.

These value-priced efforts are made by McPrice Myers and offer ridiculously good drinking for not much money. The wines are, generally speaking, upfront and fruit-loaded, yet always offer solid complexity, good richness and overall very well-made profiles.

The wines are, generally speaking, upfront and fruit-loaded, yet always offer solid complexity, good richness and overall very well-made profiles.

Made from declassified lots destined for McPrice’s Beautiful Earth and Altas Vinas (released under his McPrice Myers label), the 2010 Hand Over Fist is a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvedre that comes from west side Paso Robles vineyards. Aged 20 months in French oak puncheons, it offers up a solid array of licorice, black fruits, earth and hints of leather to go with a medium to full-bodied, supple and beautifully balanced palate that carries juicy acidity and fine tannin. Another winner, it’s a rock- solid bottle of wine that will continue to drink nicely through 2018. Drink now-2018."

In a recent issue, Wine Spectator stated, “California Grenache is capable of stardom. But there needs to be a lot more made so that the average consumer can buy it.” Well, here’s your star!

Read More...
The Barrel 27 guys have long searched for that perfect vineyard for the Rhône Valley’s bedrock grape... Grenache. That search has ended and the result is the most seductive Rock and a Hard Place to date! The wine exhibits a dark ruby-black color with a compelling nose of pureed raspberry, black berry jam, crushed mint leaf, sweet Tellicherry black pepper and cocoa, followed by hints of Chinese 5 Spices, cranberry, prosciutto, warm tar, lychee and rhubarb pie. In the mouth, the wine's purity shines out with flavors of dried raspberry and cranberry, mint, sage, cured meat and fresh herbs, with elements of wood smoke, nori, citrus and smoky paprika. Superb acidity balances the excellent tannin structure and the wine's generous body, yielding a long, pure finish of fruit and spice.
BARREL 27 12 SY RIGHT HAND MAN

As if their white wasn’t good enough (yeah...right!), if the “High on the Hog” was the left hand, then why shouldn’t they have a red as their “Right Hand”? Winemaker Mac Myers (owner/Read More...
winemaker for McPrice Myers) contributes a little wine from his own project in order to make the Barrel 27 Syrah. So in a sense, here you get a wine that may retail for twice the price! This has been a tremendous sell in the past, so you can expect how incredible the highly-acclaimed 2008 is!

The wine possesses a deep black garnet color and a powerhouse nose of black plum, blackberry and black cherry fruits, with floral elements of lavender, candy mint and violets, followed up by notes of black pepper, tarry creosote, cola berry, blood orange and dried cranberry. The dense, rich mouth is dominated by dark plum and blackberry fruit with flavors of Chinese Black tea, anise/black licorice, rose water, red grapefruit and warm crème brulee. The wine's long finish is dominated by fruit, spice and a long graphite and soil note. Great acidity and excellent tannin provide the perfect structure for the biggest Right Hand Man to date!

Born in Michoacan, Mexico, winemaker Edgar Torres has lived in the coastal town of Cambria, California since the age of 8. As it seems to happen to many people who live close to Paso Robles, Read More...
he fell in love with wine and decided to make his livelihood in the wine business. Hey…can you blame him?!? He has worked with many of the superstars of the Central Coast, including Matt Garretson, Augie Hug, and Alta Maria Vineyards. Today, he is the assistant winemaker at Barrel 27, and works alongside one of our best friends, McPrice Myers (what a mentor!), when Edgar isn’t tinkering on his own wines. We sampled his latest releases a few months ago, and they really knocked our socks off! The intensity of these wines are rivaled by few here in the United States, and we suggest you check out what Edgar can do!

“E-Squared” is a nickname given to Edgar and his sister Erika by their parents, and it's a blend of Erika’s favorite grape (Syrah) and Edgar's (Grenache). The E-Squared has become one of Edgar's most popular wines, and one he has made for several years in a row now.

As with the 2010 E-squared, this vintage is again sourced from Luna Matta Vineyard on the Westside Paso (Syrah) and Grenache from Cedar Lane Vineyard in Arroyo Seco. A little more savory but still packing some great ripe fruit with medium ruby color. The nose offers aromas of mulberry, fresh coffee grounds and cocoa powder, with secondary notes of red plum, red currant, and an earthy component. On the palate it comes off soft with fine tannins and a supple finish. This wine showcases better at cellar temperature and pairs well with gamey meats.

We feel that Bogle has one of the most solid wine portfolios in the business, and they prove that it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg! The Bogle family has been farming Read More...
since the mid 1800’s and their reputation has continued to grow. The fact that they want to sell wines that people can actually afford doesn’t hurt, either. Those seeking a quality wine for little money should look no further, as this Petite Sirah is one of our everyday favorites! Sourced from vineyards in Clarksburg and Lodi, this wine has a nose of luscious boysenberry that teases you with touches of black pepper and herbs. Trademark inky and jammy tones fill the mouth with ripe fruit and berries and a voluptuous finish that lingers with toasty oak and lush fruit.

Brassfield's Volcano Ridge Vineyard is located on the steep slopes of an extinct cinder cone at 2,200 feet above sea level on the eastern end of High Valley. The pure volcanic soils Read More...
are ideal for vine stress, restricting crop yields, and making wine that has both intensity and elegance.

A blend of Syrah, Malbec, Mourvedre, and Petite Sirah, the 2012 Eruption is rich and intense. The wine has aromas of fresh blueberries, toasted brioche, black cherries, and mocha, giving way to flavors that are jammy, ripe and unctuous. The palate explodes with blackberries, dark currants, and clove while it layers supple and round coating tannins, making the wine both hedonistic while simultaneously elegant. The texture of this wine is perhaps its most distinguishing trait – mouth-coating with an endless finish. Be certain to have a second bottle on hand, the first won’t last very long.

This is John Cabot's Syrah that smells like bacon fat. You're welcome! Winery's Notes: "The 2008 vintage in Humboldt was an ideal year. We started with an early bud Read More...
break and received very even temperatures throughout the growing season. The crop was very small this year due to inclement weather during the bloom period. We were lucky to have no real heat events and ten days of cool weather preceding harvest. This allowed this small crop to become balanced in its sugar, acid, and flavor components. The fruit was picked in the last week of Sept through the first week of oct and 24- 25.5 brix and each block was fermented separately in small one ton fermenters, pressed at dryness and transferred to 3 yr. old French oak barrels where they sat, on the lees, for two years before bottling, unfined and unfiltered. . It is a blend of three of our estate vineyards, Henderson Hill, Ishi Pishi Ranch and Kimberly’s.

"The resulting wine is full and rich, with a tremendous mid palate presence. It displays a nose of black pepper, red meat, black fruits and spice. This wine exhibits all of the characters we love about Syrah from this region. It is full, long and spicy with blackberry, dark red cherry, tons of cracked pepper and Christmas spices. We chose five barrels that would display the range of flavors and aromas each soil/site has to offer. "

Denise Shurtleff grew up in a California family of French origin that enjoyed wine. After graduating from Cal Poly SLO, she worked at a local winery as a lab tech during harvest, and Read More...
was quickly introduced to the intensity and passion associated with fine winemaking. She worked all aspects at the winery, learning how each and every part of the winemaking process affects the final wine. The sustainably-farmed Tempusquet Vineyard in Santa Maria produces grapes of intense quality, and Denise knows just the methods needed to get the vineyard’s best into the bottle. Reminiscent of a red wine from the Northern Rhône, this wonderful bottling shows Syrah’s exotic aromas of cassis, violet, black peppercorn, cherry, cola, mocha, cinnamon and earth. The rich entry is bolstered by plenty of acidity and finishes with fine tannins.
