2013 Opolo Zinfandel Mountain Zinfandel

Paso Robles more

5/22/2015 - whits wrote: 88 points

flexed out plums and spice on the nose and palate, with raspberry, black cherry and pepper filling out the mouth, big and full-bodied, this is a ripe uppercut to the mandible, a wine that would like to accompany a juicy rib-eye steak or braised short ribs, BBQ wine in the summer, fireplace wine in the winter, yummy

2004 L'Aventure Côte-à-Côte Estate

Paso Robles Red Rhone Blend more

5/23/2015 - jvest Likes this wine: 97 points

This wine has a big full mouth feel with flavors of cassis, blackberry, fig, transitioning to bittersweet chocolate. The tannins are soft and well integrated producing a long smooth finish. What is there not to like about this wine? It has it all. Unfortunately I've drunk it all.

2013 McPrice Myers Beautiful Earth

Paso Robles Syrah Blend, Syrah more

5/22/2015 - OneLastSyrah Likes this wine: 92 points

15.2 % ABV . 79/13/8 s/g/m. Opaque dark garnet in the glass. Ripe berry fruit and spice nose with just a touch of toasted blackberry seeds. Great oak integration relative to some earlier vintages that seemed to need more time. Ripe black fruit with some pleasant leathery undertones. Nice.

2012 Denner Sacred Burro

Paso Robles Carignan more

5/22/2015 - pocchia Likes this wine: 89 points

Carig-what? Carignan my friends. Popped & poured. In the glass its dark magenta has a transparency that shimmers as it's poured. The nose! The nose belies its freshness. Reminds me of walking through the forest after it rains - it's clean but heavy with a smell of wet wood. Then SURPRISE! Ha! You thought it would be thicker, heavier, but no! Young, bright and dances on your palate with a sharp structure that is oh-so wonderful as it hits the front and then zips towards the middle where the tannins say "Hello!", and then to the back of your palate where it lingers for a bit. Stems up!

Paso Robles Red Blend more

5/22/2015 - Euell Gophar Does not like this wine: 87 points

I am sure there's a pairing suitable to this blend of overripe dark berries but whatever it is, it will need to cut through a petroleum undertone which seldom pleases me.

5/22/2015 - sonodoc Likes this wine: 94 points

Had as pop and pour when taken out to our local steakhouse. The Syrah gives it a nice dark fruit taste, with the Grenache adding a floral background. The tannins seemed pretty smooth, and so we managed to finish tip his baby off before our steaks arrived. Very smooth and tasty!

2008 Villa Creek Bête Noire

Paso Robles Syrah Blend, Syrah more

5/22/2015 - BVal wrote: 92 points

Color: dark dark ruby core -> fairly dense ruby rim. Gorgeous bouquet of graphite, roasted cherries and a smokey, almost peaty earthiness. Palate is bright and lively with excellent acidity and showing off that pretty, roasted/grilled cherry fruit. This is a wonderful amalgam of the best of Syrah and Mourvedre showing off a little leather, gaminess and a good dollop of forest floor. Cris Cherry always seems to have a deft touch with Mourvedre and it shows very well here. Delicious now and well into the future, this is certainly worth a search to find.

2007 Loring Wine Company Pinot Noir Russell Family Vineyard

Paso Robles more

5/22/2015 - indiscriminate palate wrote: NR

Do Loring wines age? Not according to this bottle. Blackberry, plum, and chocolate, quickly yield to bitterness, oak, and unpleasant tartness. The bottle lost to three other "lesser" wines (which, combined, cost what this one bottle does) in a mixed wine crowd. The other bottles were finished while no one had more than a sip of this. Drink now (or don't).

It's a very good wine for $75. A decent amount of fruit but not a fruit bomb. A medium bodied Cali style cuvee.

Last of the Christian 4 vines vintages. Big fruit and heavy Zin characteristics. Great way to end the evening, but still a crowd favorite, and still drinking well.

Late Mother's Day celebration. Amazing Zin from one of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in central California. Had dinner from the local Italian joint, couldn't have been better. Perfect timing for this wine, due to the magnum bottle size, the Dusi vineyards never disappoint. Best Zin out there in my opinion.

Wow, this wine is amazing right now. Tried it in Nov 14 and it was good. Tasted at Opolo tasting room this past weekend and liked it even more. Opened a bottle tonight and was really impressed. Strawberry and herb, well balanced, smooth tannins.
