2012 Terry Hoage "5 Blocks Cuvee" Paso Robles Rhone Blend

SKU #1243801 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2012 5 Blocks checks in as 61% Syrah, 20% Mourvedre, 15% Grenache and 4% Cinsault that has a forward, medium to full-bodied, voluptuous style. Staying fresh and lively, with classic cassis and black raspberry fruit intermixed with licorice, chocolate and spring flowers, I love the overall purity and focus here, and it’s probably the most approachable and ready-to-go in the lineup. I’d plan on drinking bottles over the coming 4-5 years, but wouldn’t be surprised to see it evolve longer given its balance and overall harmony. I loved these latest releases from Terry Hoage and they epitomize the best of Paso Robles with their rich, textured and up-front style. (JD)  (8/2014)

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. Click for a list of bestselling items from the United States.


- 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.
