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, 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!
This Westside Paso Robles vineyard has always been utilized in Edgar's Tempranillo blends, but this is the first time it will be showcased on its own. We are very excited to treat all of you to this joven (young), expressive Tempranillo with a beautiful, rich nose that displays notes of cherry jam, goat cheese, green meadow and oak. While it's bold in flavor, it's smooth and easy to drink. Pairs well with pizza and any red meat. Drink now or age 5-10 years!
