| ||Tasted by brigcampbell on 5/26/2013: Sam and Russ in SoCal (Walt's House, Rancho Santa Margarita, CA): Two thirds Petite Sirah and one part Zinfandel. Really great wine. Dark color and zin driven nose. Great California wine with the PS providing the tannic backbone to the zin flavors. This should age nicely. Wish I had more. (315 views)|

Dover Canyon Producer website
DOVER CANYON is on Vineyard Drive in the northwest quadrant of the Paso Robles appellation. Dan Panico, owner and winemaker of Dover Canyon, has long believed that the northwest-running strip of calcareous soil along Vineyard Drive is optimum for growing Zinfandel and Rhône varieties. Our estate vineyard features head-pruned, dry farmed zinfandel and stress-irrigated syrah. Our production is focused on small lots of wine, often vineyard designated, from mountainous vineyards in the northwest corner of Paso Robles, centering around the Dover Canyon, Templeton Gap, and Adelaida districts. Dan is well known for producing wines with a silky, smoke-and-licorice profile and a focus on vineyard presence.
