Seriously…why can’t more producers make wine this good…and at this price! Aaron Jackson grew up in the Paso Robles region, and he’s been making wine since he was a teenager (literally!). Read More...
That being said, he’s found many vineyards that are so secluded that other producers don’t even know where those vineyards are! Blended with just a splash of Syrah, the wine opens with briary aromatics of fresh red and black fruits, wild berries, melted licorice, hibiscus flower, and subtle smoke. The palate is soft, round, and juicy, with briary blackberry, cherry pie, peppered beef, and toffee notes. Snappy acid keeps the palate fresh on the long and focused finish. A bright and approachable Petite Sirah, it brings forth the fruit-forward nature of both Paso Robles and the 2008 vintage, whilst still giving the generous mouthfeel and roundness that is the hallmark of Petite.

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.

Direct and bold in cherries, raspberries, chocolate and spices, this is a tasty Syrah. The richness is wrapped into fine, sweet tannins, with a tweet of smoky oak.

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???
BARREL 27 09 BULL BY THE HORNS
$27.95

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 - "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.

"A blend of Syrah, Tempranillo and Petit Verdot, the 2009 Bull by the Horns is the most structured of the bunch. Showing a deep purple color, it delivers loads of dried spice-laced red and black fruits, licorice, leafy herbs, leather and meaty qualities to go with a medium to full-bodied, structured, yet well-textured palate. Balanced, rich and with solid freshness, it, too, needs another year or so in bottle and will shine over the coming 5-6 years. Drink 2014-2019."

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 11 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!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "The 2010 Syrah Right Hand Man is a smoking value that’s loaded with character. A blend of 97% Syrah and 3% Petite Sirah that spent 18 months in 10% new French and American oak, it dishes out fantastic complexity for the price point with cassis, licorice, wild herbs and caramelized meat aromas and flavors all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, plush and pure, with notable tannin, it’s a serious wine for very little buck. Enjoy it over the coming year or three. Drink now-2016."

Notes from Winemaker Morgan Twain-Petersen: As always this is a true rose (not saignee) of 120 year old vine Mourvedre from my Bedrock Vineyard. After a visit this Spring to Domaine Read More...
Tempier and some additional conversations with the winemaker there I have revamped the way I make the rose a bit. In 2010 I picked the grapes at a super-low 20.9 brix, and instead of destemming the grapes prior to putting them in the press, I did the entire lot as whole-cluster. This meant less breaking down of the skins and less protracted skin-contact, thereby lowering both the color and tannin uptake. The wine was pressed to a stainless tank where it was fermented cold using indigenous yeasts to dryness and a low 12.8% alcohol (the label is wrong). Unlike previous years where full malolactic conversion was allowed to take place I only allowed limited MLF so as to preserve a bit more of the raciness imparted by the malic acid. This is the first year I am close to 100% pleased with the rose'-it is finally starting to resemble to the California-inflected graceful stuff I had envisioned.

Born in Michoacán, 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 works alongside one of our best friends, McPrice Myers over at Barrel 27 (what a mentor!), when Edgar isn’t tinkering on his own wines. We sampled his latest releases last month 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! El CabRhone is a play on words, as this is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Rhone varietals (30% Grenache, 10% Syrah, and 10% Mourvedre). The wine offers a lovely blackberry and plum core which is surrounded by cinnamon and sweet applewood smoke notes, with orange-peel-candied-in-chocolate elements. Fine tannins and elegant acidity combine with the pure fruit and spices for a long, seamless finish. Only 145 cases were produced!

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.

Grenache from the Ca’ del Solo estate (almost a quarter of the blend) adds rich black fruit flavors and a discreet spiciness. Syrah is principally sourced from Bien Nacido vineyard Read More...
in Santa Maria Valley, which produces the closest analogue we have found to a Northern Rhône Syrah – tannic and meaty in the lower registers; peppery, fruitful and delicately floral in the top, all the while showing great balance and harmony. A small amount of ultra-low-yielding hilltop Biodynamic® Syrah comes from the Chequera vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles. A select group of non-irrigated, centenarian Contra Costa vineyards continues to provide Mourvèdre for Cigare. A touch of Cinsault provides a very particular fragrance of flowers and aromatic herbs, and an even smaller morsel of Carignane adds notes of earthy stone.
