2010 McPrice Myers "Beautiful Earth" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1113196 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Superb, the 2010 Beautiful Earth, a blend of 80% Syrah, 11% Mourvedre and 9% Grenache, has a touch more flesh than the Altas Vinas and shows a gorgeous bouquet of red and black berry fruit, licorice, sappy underbrush and mineral. Complex, fresh and elegant, with a full-bodied, rich texture, no hard edges, and solid mid-palate depth and concentration, it is approachable now due to the quality of the fruit, yet will be even better in 2-3 years. A drink window through 2022 seems reasonable. Drink 2015-2022. These 2010s and 2011s from McPrice are straight up fantastic. Very classy and pure, they all benefitted from substantial air time and deserve another year or two in the cellar. In addition to delivering rock-star quality, they also represent superb values. This is another Paso Robles producer who has consistently produced outstanding wines that remain more than reasonably priced given their quality. They merit serious attention!  (8/ 2013)

 (80% syrah, 11% mourvedre and 9% grenache): Opaque purple. Complex scents of red and dark berries complemented by minerals, mint, anise and exotic spices. At once rich and focused, offering sweet raspberry and blackcurrant flavors, supple texture and strong mineral snap. This attractive sweet, precise blend finishes with strong cut and lingering notes of spices and flowers.  (11/ 2012)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
