Bodegas Paso Robles

L'Aventure

Côte à Côte Estate Paso Robles Grenache Blend 2013

Cold November date night at home...2 inch med-rare filets, fully dressed bakers, and roast butternut....Stephan’s MGS is a brut at 15.8–but Paso blends hide the ABV with some age. Beautiful full purple with no noticeable jamminess.. med-weight, a touch of pencil, leather, tobacco oak but lovely dark, black fruit/stem fruit. Nice acid/fruit/tannin balance and a long warming finish. I’ve loved these wines and valued Stephan Assao since he walked into my retail workplace 25 years ago and tried to sell his wines. Perfect...no...but they taste so fucking good and I love them and their vision! — 12 days ago

Herman Story

Larner Vineyard Syrah Grenache 2013

The way that Russell’s wines mellow after several years in the bottle is just special. They need the time to resolve the alcohol a bit and they really settle into fantastic wines. — 7 days ago

Turley

Ueberroth Vineyard Zinfandel 2017

Faux passion fruit and guava candy you get at the end of a meal at a Chinese restaurant. Young and tannic. Easily one of my favorite Turley vineyards. — an hour ago

Inertia GSM Blend 2016

Been a strange and challenging year for everyone, but still extremely thankful with brighter days to come! Today, I’m especially thankful for this wine - a favorite under normal circumstances, but greatness really resonating with a fantastic meal. Happy thanksgiving all! — a day ago

Saxum Vineyards

G2 Vineyard Mourvèdre-Grenache Blend 2016

Pretty sure the 2016 is the first vintage of Saxum’s G2 cuvee. This one is 42% grenache, 35% mataro, 20% tannat, and 3% zin. I just call it awesome. — an hour ago

Tablas Creek Vineyard

Le Complice Adelaida District Syrah Blend 2017

Beautifully floral and energetic. Tangy red/blue fruited with five spice and brown sugar. Syrah-based blend featuring 12% of Terret Noir, something imma have to look up after enjoying this bottle. — 9 days ago

Saxum Vineyards

Broken Stones Red Rhone Blend 2008

From a few days ago. Excellent, but definitely on a fast evolutionary slope. In my view this is just past peak, so I’d recommend enjoying this sooner rather than later. — 12 days ago

Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard Syrah 2008

Enjoyed right after the Broken Stones from the same year, this was substantially better (and that’s coming from someone whose favorite varietal is grenache!). Wonderfully balanced with a lot of fruit but still sporting a backbone, this is far and away the best wine I’ve had over the past year from the 2008 vintage in Paso. Still has a few years of development ahead of it, but my advice is to enjoy this one now. — 12 days ago

Have you tried any old Torbreck? It eats Paso up.

Linne Calodo

Outsider Zinfandel Blend 2016

Rich, full, jammy. Reminds me of the blueberry compote I had tonight with cheesecake. Fortunately is balanced by characteristic Paso acidity. — a day ago
