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, this wine shows deep and dark aromatics of blue and black fruits, peppercorn, bay leaf, anise, and tapenade. The palate is big, yet maintains some elegance, with blackberry, blueberry, smoked beef, loads of spice, with firm and gravelly tannins. Only 390 cases produced!

John Alban is regarded as one of the pioneers and visionaries for Rhône varietals in California’s Central Coast. He doesn’t just say, "I want to grow Syrah." He looks at the soils, Read More...
the exposure of the land, and the microclimates, and pairs the proper rootstocks, clones, and trellising systems appropriately. Then, he takes it one step further, and produces his wines in a style that is in sync with the grapes provided by the vines. The results are tremendous wines that typically receive high scores and lofty praise and demand from both consumers and critics! Even today, wineries and vineyard managers up and down California look to him for his insight and know-how for top quality Syrah, Grenache, Viognier, and Roussanne. This year’s Patrina bottling has earned 94 POINTS from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate!

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "One of the best entry-level wines out there is John's 2012 Syrah Patrina, and it competes with many top cuvees. All Syrah in 2012 and showing the house style perfectly, it has a saturated inky color to go with a forward, sexy, meaty and full-bodied array of creme de cassis, licorice, chocolate and licorice. Showing how good 2012 was for this estate, it's a rock-star wine to enjoy while you wait for his 2010s and 2011s to come around."

is a joy to drink. Unfortunately, there are only 250 cases to go around. Ripe, full-bodied, voluptuous and decadent, with textbook apricot, flowers, brioche and orange blossom aromas and flavors, it will easily stand beside a great Condrieu. Like with the Central Coast release, it will drink nicely for several years."

Jeb Dunnuck from the Wine Advocate called this "One of the top Marsanne releases coming out of California…" and we couldn't agree more! Bob Tillman searched for several years for the Read More...
site where he could plant a truly world-class vineyard. After the family moved to the Central Coast of California and tasted the wines coming out of Paso Robles, they knew they found the right region! In 2003, Bob found this beautiful hilltop property on Adelaida Road that would become Alta Colina. All the grapes on this property are organically farmed, and the fruit is so amazing that other Central Coast producers such as McPrice Myers, Sans Liege, and Paydirt get fruit from Alta Colina. Bob's Marsanne is absolutely amazing! Blended with a touch of Roussanne, this wine shows lovely poached pear and green apple aromatics with grilled bread and warm brown spice. Custardy lemon notes add a vibrant note to the nose. The palate is exceptionally integrated, where the fruit marries perfectly with the oak and rich, brulee-like flavors dominate. The plushness carries through to the smooth, toasty tones of the finish. This white wine will show continued development over the next several years.

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "One of the top Marsanne releases coming out of California is the 2013 Marsanne Claudia Cuvee from Alta Colina. Incorporating 8% Roussanne it was barrel fermented and aged 17 months in 33% new French oak. It offers lots of apple skin, honeysuckle, crushed rock and some buttery nuances on the nose. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully pure, concentrated, yet lively and fresh profile on the palate that keeps you coming back to the glass. Drink it over the coming 3-4 years, although I'm sure it will evolve nicely for longer."
ANCIENT PEAKS 12 RENEGADE
$19.95

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.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 90 POINTS - "These value-priced efforts are made by McPrice Myers and offer ridiculously good drinking for not much money. Read More...
The wines are, generally speaking, upfront and fruit-loaded, yet always offer solid complexity, good richness and overall very well-made profiles.

"Showing complex and slightly exotic aromas and flavors of plum pit, bramble, sweet spice and pepper, the 2010 Syrah Head Honcho hits the palate with a fruit-loaded, medium to full-bodied texture that’s reined in by clean acidity and slightly firm, edgy tannin. An outstanding bottle of wine, it should evolve nicely for another year or two and hold through 2020. Drink now-2020."

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!

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.

BODEGA DE EDGAR 12 CABRHONE
$26.95
Quantity

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. More recently, he has worked alongside one of our best friends, McPrice Myers over at Barrel 27 (what a mentor!), when Edgar isn’t tinkering on his own wines.

Edgar makes wines that knock 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!
BODEGA DE EDGAR 12 TORO

Last year, winemaker Edgar Torres brought us a couple wines that were simply amazing! This year is no different, other than the fact that he has a new wine that is really gets us excited! Read More...
His latest bottling is called "Toro de Paso", a blend of Tempranillo, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon. The Tempranillo and Grenache are a couple of the primary grapes in many Spanish reds, and coming from this Central Coast region, calling this wine Toro de Paso just made sense.

ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE 91+ POINTS - "Edgar Torres continues to fashion rich, full-throttle Paso Robles reds that have a Spanish flair. His 2012s and 2013s are both rock solid and these are certainly reasonably priced given the quality."

"A wine that has some upside, the 2012 Toro de Paso has that classic Tempranillo character of blueberry and darker fruits, cedar plank, spice-box, leather and smoked meats. These give way to a medium to full-bodied wine that has solid concentration, a focused, streamlined texture and building tannin, all of which suggest it will evolve nicely. A blend of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Grenache and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon that spent 18-20 months in 40% new French and American oak, give it a year or two in the cellar and enjoy bottles through 2024."

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.
