A couple years back we met Oliver Esparham and his lovely wife at a tasting, son of Don and Susie Law we learned all about thier passion for the wine and the region. Of course we couldn’t wait to visit the estate and what an amazing place they have created. The winery sits high atop Peach Canyon Road with vineyards 1,600 (480) and 1,900 (580) feet (meters) and plantings of 15 small lot varietals. Their desire is to produce ultra-premium, limited production, Rhone and Priorat style wines that would be a true expression of the site. .
With 4200 cases produced and 10 different wines, here is the sampling we tasted:
Sagacious (2014) flipping the GSM blend
42% Mourvedre, 38% Syrah and 20% Grenache
Flavors of small dark berries (pomegranate) with a tartness and a tannon structure that leaves a silky impression on your palate.
Audacious (2014) a Rhone and Bordeaux varital blend
30% Cab, 29% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 18% Petit Verdot
Blueberry pie! This one evolved in the glass more than any other. Secondary tastings brought out cassis and dark chocolate with some grippy tannins which we can assume will continue the evolution in the bottle given time.
Beyond Catagory (2014) this is a different blend every year
75% Syrah, 13% Petit Verdot, 12% Petit Syrah
A fruit forward, fresh wine with hints of tobacco. .
First Tracks (2013)
40% Petit Verdot, 32% Syrah, 28% Cab
For me the most complex with a mouthful of tannins which leave you knowing this one can age. Blackberries, leather with lingering spices.
‘Cowgirl on Vine’ is a 2BR/1BA home in the 1400 block of Vine Street in downtown Paso Robles. Perfectly located in a classic Paso neighborhood, within blocks of the downtown park, which is surrounded on three sides by wine-tasting rooms, gourmet restaurants, boutique shopping, and much, much more! pasoroblesvacationrentals.com/rental/cowgirl-on-vine/ #pasorobles#pasoroblesvacationrentals#cowgirlonvine
It’s almost time for Washington’s Birthday Celebration weekend, also known as “Presidents' Day Weekend” to many -- but why?
In 1879, the United States made Washington's February 22nd birthday a federal holiday. On June 28, 1968, Congress passed the “Uniform Monday Holiday Act”. This law was to provide uniform annual observances of certain legal public holidays on Mondays, moving Washington's birthday from February 22 to the third Monday of February.
While the name “Presidents’ Day” was proposed for this Monday holiday in 1951, the U.S. government never officially changed the name. The idea behind the name was to create a holiday that did not recognize a specific president, but rather celebrated the office of the presidency. In the 1980s, thanks to advertising campaigns for holiday sales, the term became popularized and largely accepted. The official name of the holiday on the third Monday in February, however, remains Washington's Birthday 🎉🎂
