Josh Raynolds writes: "Established in 1981, Adelaida is one of Paso Robles’ oldest high-end wineries. Quality continues to climb and, in my opinion, has never been better. With 168 acres of vines spread across seven mostly high-altitude sites, Adelaida has always had the potential to make some of the best wines of the region. I first noticed an uptick in complexity and balance in the wines in the early 2000s, and things accelerated with the arrival of winemaker Jeremy Weintraub in 2012, after a stint at Seavey, in Napa Valley. While the entry-level wines...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Citizen checks in as 57% Syrah and 43% Petite Sirah that spent 22 months in 65% new French oak (mostly larger barrels). It has a sweet nose of jammy blackberries, incense, and ground pepper that gives way to a rich, plush, seamless red that has sweet tannin, a rounded, voluptuous texture and a great finish. It’s another awesome wine from winemaker Aaron Jackson." (11/2018) 95 points Vinous: " Vivid purple. Powerful, mineral-accented blackberry, blueberry and floral oil aromas are complemented by cola, licorice and woods...


Producer's notes: "Cobblestone streets and dark alleyways, leather guitar strap, Creme de Violette, fertile soil, poison ring, traversing the Alps."
Price: $39.95

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Blackberry, blueberries, tar, toasted spice, and chocolate notes all emerge from the 2016 Petite Sirah (there’s 12% Syrah in the blend) and it's ripe and polished on the palate, with full-bodied richness, silky tannins, and a great finish." (10/2019)

91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Zinfandel Paso Robles is also very promising, offering up youthful primary aromas of ripe cherries and currants. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, supple and succulent, with melting tannins and a pure, juicy, fruit-driven profile. In 2017, Ridge was able to pick their entire block of the Benito Dusi vineyard in one go, meaning that all the grapes arrived at the Monte Bello winery the day that they were harvested, and that will also be the practice going forward. While the ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Blended of 73% Grenache, 23% Syrah, 4% Mourvèdre, the 2014 The Pick Cuvée Willow Creek District has a pale to medium garnet-purple color and a meaty/savory nose of chargrill, charcuterie and damp soil over a core of baked cherries and warm plums, plus hints of sautéed herbs and leather. Full-bodied, plush, rich and with loads of savory layers, it delivers great expression and length. (LPB)" (12/2017)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "My favorite again, however, remains the 2006 Syrah James Berry Vineyard. There is just something so delineated and complex about the wines from this site. Additionally, they seem to have more acidity, yet also the enormous richness and massive fruit extract. Blackberries, cassis, truffle, charcoal, and some subtle smoke are all present in this wine, which comes closest to a top-notch Hermitage from this area of Paso Robles. Long, rich, with striking minerality, this is a blockbuster Syrah that should age effortle...

Wine Spectator: "Sleek and briary, with floral dill and raspberry aromas and trim cherry and grilled anise flavors. Drink now through 2023. (TF, Web Only-2017)"
Price: $34.99

Benito Dusi Ranch is the only vineyard on the Central Coast that Ridge sources grapes from, and they've been making wines from the Zin vines there since 1967. The wines from this site are fruit-filled but balanced, with bright raspberry fruit and toasted coconut flavors.
Price: $34.99

93 points Vinous: "Opaque ruby. Deep, smoke-accented aromas of red and blue fruits, candied flowers and cracked pepper convey a slow-building mineral quality. At once rich and energetic, offering intense black raspberry and boysenberry compote flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Finishes spicy and impressively long, with velvety tannins arriving late and adding gentle grip. (JR)" (09/2016) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "*Cellar Selection* Dried red cherries, dark strawberry, mulberry, light baking spice and freshly cracked pepper show on the nose of thi...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving to 2015 reds, of which there are just two I hadn’t tasted from bottle, the 2015 Esprit de Tablas checks in as a blend of 49% Mourvèdre, 25% Grenache, 21% Syrah, and the rest Counoise that spent 22 months in larger, neutral oak foudres. This layered, ripe, even sexy red offers impressive notes of kirsch and blackberry fruits, notes of lavender, spice, and flowers, full body, and a textured, lengthy, pure finish. It will keep for 15+ years, although it will be approachable with just short-term cellaring." (11/2018) 92 point...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 White is in the same ballpark and reminds me of a top Hermitage Blanc from Michel Chapoutier. Quince, honeysuckle, buttered citrus, marmalade, and white flower notes all flow to a full-bodied, concentrated, yet beautifully balanced white that does everything right. It’s that perfect match of richness and freshness, not to mention awesome purity." (11/2018)

93 points Vinous: "Deep lurid violet. Intense cherry and boysenberry aromas are complemented by notes of cola and candied flowers. Allspice and star anise notes emerge with air and carry onto the palate, adding complexity to sweet red and blue fruit flavors that show excellent clarity and spicy lift. Shows strong, fruity thrust on the youthfully tannic finish, which echoes the spicy notes. (JR)" (09/2018) 93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a strong but not overripe fruit character on the nose of this bottling from historic vines, with baked strawberr...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the 2014 Willow Creek Cuvee (no surprise, it's a year in, year out favorite), and this vibrant purple colored beauty is made from 70% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre and 10% Syrah. It was fermented with 75% whole clusters and raised in 25% new French oak puncheons and barrique. This voluptuous, sexy wine has fine tannin, a rich, layered texture and medium to full-bodied aromas and flavors of blackberries, smoked herbs, licorice and wild flowers. It's a hedonistic wine that delivers on the pleasure scale. Winema...


92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Ripe peach, honeyed citrus, salty minerality, and white flower notes all emerge from the 2017 Willow White, a beautifully textured, layered, balanced white. I'd drink it over the coming 3-5 years, but I wouldn't be surprised to see it evolve longer." (10/2019)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Milk & Honey checks in as a blend of 34% Tempranillo, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Syrah, 14% Petit Verdot, and the rest Grenache sourced all from Paso Robles and brought up in 77% new French oak. Blackberries, cassis, scorched earth, graphite, and ground pepper all define the bouquet, and it's full-bodied, with a powerful, concentrated mid-palate, ripe tannins, and a great finish. Give bottles a year and it should keep for 7-8. 92+" (10/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A thrilling 2011 and up there with the 2010 quality- wise, the 2011 Beautiful Earth is 72% Syrah and the balance Grenache and Mourvedre. Gorgeously pure, fresh and focused, with knockout purity, it dishes out layers of blackberry, chocolate, smoke and floral undertones to go with a full-bodied and impeccably balance profile on the palate. Impressive any way you look at it, enjoy bottles over the coming 7-8 years. Drink now-2021. These 2010s and 2011s from McPrice are straight up fantastic. Very classy and pure, ...




Booker Vineyard is farmed bio-dynamically. They believe it keeps them in touch with their vineyard and forces them to perceive it as a living, breathing entity. Bio-dynamic farming follows the beliefs of Rudolf Steiner, who promoted a holistic approach to farming, describing that all things on the farm (including soil, plants, and livestock) are interrelated. Like many, they were skeptical of the concept at first. Eventually they came to realize, if these farming practices are good enough for some of the most discriminating wineries of the world then w...

This is the only white that Booker makes and it's a blend of Roussanne, Viognier, Petit Manseng, and Marsanne. The 2014 vintage was aged in 40% concrete and 60% French oak, making it cleaner and crisper than other vintages while still maintaining the texture this wine is known for.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium garnet colored, the 2014 Grenache The Skins Willow Creek District has a cherry compote, red currant jelly and raspberry pie-laced nose with touches of Chinese five spice, hoisin and Sichuan pepper. Very big, rich, full-bodied and seductive in the mouth, it has pleasantly plush tannins and a lively acid line, lifting the long and somewhat warm finish. (LPB)" (12/2017)


91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 5 Blocks Cuvée Willow Creek District, a blend of 68% Syrah, 27% Mourvèdre and 5% Grenache, has a medium to deep garnet color and gives a baked blackberries, warm plums and blueberry pie-scented nose with hints of spice cake, smoked meats and fragrant earth. Full-bodied, concentrated and jam-packed with fruit preserves and savory layers, it has a chewy frame and plenty of freshness lifting the long, savory finish. (LPB)" (12/2017)

93-95 points Vinous: "A big, explosive wine, the 2012 Esprit de Tablas is warm and ample on the palate, very much in the style of the year, yet there is plenty of power lying in reserve. In 2012, Syrah plays a larger role than in both the 2010 and 2011, which is felt in the wine broad, expansive personality. This is going to be a fascinating Esprit to follow over the coming years. (AG)" (07/2014) 92-93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Fresh dark berries, licorice, olive, woodsmoke and candied violet on the deeply perf...


94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I am thrilled to see the 2009 Esprit de Beaucastel burst from the glass with an exciting melange of dark red cherries, flowers, sweet herbs, mint and spices. Exotic spiced notes linger on the finish. The 2009 boasts serious intensity, richness and depth, but it remains quite tannic and in need of further bottle age. The vintage saw both frost and drought, two conditions that are a little unusual in the same year. Now that it is in bottle, the 2009 meets all of the expectations I had when I tasted it from barrel l...


90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Opaque ruby. Spicy redcurrant, raspberry, licorice and pipe tobacco on the nose. Lively, precise and juicy on the palate, with flavors of red fruits, peppery spices and herbs. Gains weight and sweetness with air while maintaining vivacity, finishing with supple tannins and repeating red fruit and spice elements. (JR)" (11/2013) Wine Spectator: "Pure and juicy, with dark berry fruit, licorice and subtle tea and spice notes. Full-bodied and persistent, with tannins marked by a loamy earth edge. Caber...







91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and burly, with a good backbone of loamy acidity and tannins, this shows accents of smoky raspberry, grilled herb, licorice and peppered beef. Drink now through 2025. 492 cases made. " (03/2016) K&L Notes: Russell From is the man behind Herman Story Wines, a Central Coast phenomenon since 2001. Unpretentious, unmanipulated, and undeniably good wines. 93 points Antonio Galloni for the 2011 vintage of Late Bloomer: "Bright ruby-red. Fresh red fruit and floral pastille scents are complicated by hints of smoky minerals, alls...


92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A new blend, the 2013 Milk & Honey checks in as 35% Tempranillo, 32% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, 6% Mourvedre and a splash of Grenache, all of which saw 16 months in 70% new French oak. It's another sensational blockbuster from Russell that offers lots of black raspberry and cassis fruit to go with notes of vanilla, cedar, Asian spice and dry-aged beef. Full-bodied, rich, structured and downright tannic, I like its mid-palate and concentration level, but it needs a year in the bottle to let the tannin mellow. ...

80% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting notes from the winery: "Rich, with full ripe black fruit, spice, with smoky meaty elements, it’s a wine that lovers of bold wines will love, while still being classy enough to display exquisite table manners, pairing well with a wide variety of food."
Price: $44.99

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Seeing 18 months in mostly new French oak, the 2015 Milk & Honey (with close to equal amounts each of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah) is another deep ruby/black colored effort that offers lots of leafy herbs, pepper, bay leaf, smoke tobacco and black fruits. Rich, concentrated, chewy and moderately tannin, it's another serious mouthful of fruit to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years. (JebDunnuck.com)" (08/2017) 92 points Vinous: "Inky ruby. Primary black and blue fruits, potpourri, peppery spices and a subtle hint of vani...

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Grenache (92% Grenache, 4% Syrah and 4% Mourvedre) has classic black cherry, peppery spice and background meatiness to go with a full-bodied, concentrated feel on the palate. I actually like this more than the 2012, and it should drink nicely on release and evolve for 12-15 years on its balance and purity. (JD)" (08/2014) 91-94 points Vinous: "The 2013 Grenache is laced with black cherry, kirsch and expressive floral notes. Here the use of 95% whole clusters add gorgeous sweetness and perfume. This ...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Milk & Honey checks in as an interesting blend of 30% Tempranillo, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Syrah and the rest Grenache, Mourvedre and Petit Verdot. It offers lots of sweet black currant fruit, cedar, toasted bread, leather and dried herbs in a savory, forward and nicely textured style. There's a firm edge to the tannin (no doubt from the Tempranillo), so give it a year, and drink bottles over the following 5-6. One of my favorite estates in the Central Coast is Russell From's Herman Story, who makes...

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Esprit Blanc de Tablas is very promising, revealing aromas of peaches, honeycomb, paraffin and spice, followed by a full-bodied, gourmand palate that avoids any excess. It’s a blend of 68% Roussanne, 17% Grenache Blanc, 7% Picpoul Blanc, 4% Picardan and 4% Clairette Blanche that will be bottled in December. (EB)" (05/2018) 93-94 points Vinous: "Light green-tinged gold. Mineral-accented tangerine, melon and pear scents on the highly perfumed nose; a floral nuance gains strength as the wine opens up. ...

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "I always love this cuvée from Cris and his 2015 Garnacha is another textbook Grenache from these limestone hillsides on the westside of Paso Robles. Light ruby in color and reminiscent of Châteauneuf du Pape from Domaine de Marcoux, it offers beautiful kirsch liqueur, framboise, dried herbs and hints of incense on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, silky and textured on the palate, drink this beauty anytime over the coming 5-7 years. (JebDunnuck.com)" (08/2017)
