Paso Robles, California

Chronic Cellars

Purple Paradise Zinfandel Blend 2016

Im at Depalmas Italian Restaurant in Athens GA and I am pleased with this blend: CHRONIC CELLARS - PURPLE PARADISE 2016 from Passo Robles - my fav little spot in Cali! 79% zin, 11% petite sirah, 6% syrah, and 4% Grenache. 14.5%ABV. It has all the spice of a great Zin and all the big bold dark fruit of a cab. Texture is amazing- velvet perfection with a slab of butter. This may be the perfect blend. A nice chocolate center and a not too dry finish. My new go to wine. KAPOW! — 10 days ago

Caparone Winery

Paso Robles Zinfandel 2013

Tastes like a Zin from the early 70s. Very light color. Pungent prune-tinged berry fruit along with high-toned nose-tickling limestoney minerality. Lively and savory in the mouth. A true wine for dinner. 13.4%! — 5 days ago

Justin Vineyards & Winery

Right Angle Paso Robles Red Blend 2014

Tried this right after a 2015 chappellet signature cab and they are extremely similar. This wine is just a tad sweeter with a shorter finish. Similar varietals except the Justin contains Petite Sirah. Exceptional wine! — 3 days ago

Paso Robles Highlands District Lagrein 2016

Brambly cherry pie that still maintains high acidity with an earthy astringent finish. Big old world style wine that is uncompromised by new oak. — 2 days ago

The Fableist

373 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Cherry jam nose. The heat wafts up with the vanilla scented jam too, and remains in nice, not over-powering, ways through first sip - mid-palate - finish such that I think the stated 14.1% alcohol under-states the actual case. I’m drinking this 2017 vintage Feb 12-13 2019 and it tastes good now with promise of tasting very good, with some potential complexity in a few years. Just now, this wine packs a punch well above it’s weight class: $18 at Berkeley Bowl. It’s far below the quality of top Paso cabs but it’s far below their sticker prices too... so, hey, why not enjoy this as a more than serviceable table wine for hearty and even some spicy fare now, cellar several bottles to taste 1-5(+ ?) later as a cheap investment that could pay off huge? One can always pull out the Justin Isosceles Reserve and Tablas Creek bad boys for special Paso-wine occasions. I do miss a longer finish ... but tiny hints of licorice, shiitake+hedgehog and maybe also portobello mushrooms, and slightly larger suggestions of smoke plus some leather lead me to believe The Fableist is working on some delicious stories to tell in coming years — and will then, perhaps, linger longer on the finish. Yeah, I do think the yummy plummy jam will give way to more flavors in time — and if this hunch/hope/faith proves true, Ill increase the rating a fair amount over 9.0 for some tip-top QPR. — 5 days ago

Please do not spend $40.00-$50.00 on this manufactured wine, so many better options at that price.
