2007 Villa Creek "Onda" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

SKU #1149917 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2007 Onda brings together Syrah, Mourvedre and Tempranillo in roughly equal amounts. It is an intriguing wine for many reasons, not the least of which are its aromatic and textural complexity. Leather, licorice, spices and plums wrap around the generous, totally inviting finish. This is a beautiful wine from Cris Cherry and Villa Creek, not too surprising considering his vineyard sources. The 2007 Onda is 34% Syrah from James Berry Vineyard, 33% Mourvedre Denner Vineyard and 33% Tempranillo from Ohana. The wine spent a whopping 34 months in new French oak. The Mourvedre was fermented with 50% whole clusters, while the Syrah and Tempranillo were fully destemmed. (AG)  (8/2011)

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.
