Our Wines

  • Chardonnay
    Tasting Notes:

    Fresh lemon, nectarine and a hint of vanilla bean create an enticing, aromatic nose. On the palate, flavors of yellow apple and pear, with a dash of orange zest, are backed by a subtle toasty quality. The rich, creamy mouthfeel and well integrated acidity bring the flavors through to a long, smooth finish.

    Region:

    Central Coast

    Vintage:

    2019

    Winemaking:

    The Truesdale grapes were in picked late September and fermented in a combination of barrels and tanks. The wines were allowed to undergo complete malolactic fermentation and aged sur lie to add a degree of richness to the wine. The Edna Valley component underwent fermentation and aging in stainless steel tanks sur lie, but with no malolactic fermentation to retain bright fruit aromas and crisp acidity.

  • Margarita Vineyard Merlot
    Tasting Notes:

    Color of a fresh, young Bordeaux. The nose is particularly complex with aromas of cocoa dust, cedar, tobacco, ripe boysenberry, and freshly cut herbs. Flavors are black cherry cola, rhubarb pie filling, with a little black pepper. The tannins are soft and supple as you'd expect with a cool-climate Merlot. Serious acidity keeps the flavors elevated for what seems like forever.

    Region:

    Santa Margarita Ranch, Paso Robles

    Vintage:

    2019

    Winemaking:

    2019 was a small harvest. The massive bounty from the 2018 vintage took a toll on the vines and consequently less fruit was produced. Higher acids and bright flavors are the predominant characteristics of this vintage.

    The grapes that were sourced for this wine came from the Margarita Vineyard, a SIP (Sustainability in Practice) certified vineyard.

  • Cabernet Sauvignon
    Tasting Notes:

    Pronounced aromas of blackberry, plum, cedar, and sexy toasted oak. A mélange of black fruits on the palate wrapped in a cherry pie filling core. Melting tannins leave the impression of bittersweet chocolate in the back of the mouth. There’s a solid seam of acidity that suspends the flavors well into the finish.

    Vintage:

    2018

    Winemaking:

    It can be argued that 2018 was the best quality year Paso Robles has ever experienced. The extra month of hang time (on average) allowed for some serious color and flavor development. This wine drinks great now but will only improve over the coming years.

  • Printer's Alley Red Blend
    Tasting Notes:

    An expressive nose of dark cherry, plum and cranberry notes that carry through on the palate along with herbal hints and a touch of sweet baking-spice. This is a juicy, rich, well-structured red blend, with flavors framed by grippy tannins and balanced acidity. A wine easily enjoyed today but with strong aging potential for years ahead.

  • Margarita Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon
    Tasting Notes:

    Spice-accented cherry and dark berry aromas show very good clarity and a subtle smoky nuance. Sappy and focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and black currant flavors that become sweeter with air. Shows very good energy and clarity on the finish, which is firmed by supple, slow-building tannins.

    The grapes that were sourced for this wine came from the Margarita Vineyard, a SIP (Sustainability in Practice) certified vineyard.

    Region:

    Santa Margarita Ranch, Paso Robles

    Vintage:

    2018

    Winemaking:

    After a hot summer, the weather pattern returned to normal leading up to harvest—which began 2-3 weeks later than usual. Vines saw smaller cluster sizes and berries, indicating intensity of flavor. This wine was matured for 12 months in French & American Oak.

  • Blackletter Cabernet Sauvignon
    Tasting Notes:

    Exceptionally complex nose with layers of leather, spice, black currant, nutmeg, and blackberry. Rich flavors of plum, black cherry, black olive, and Oolong tea. Dense and deep, this wine will continue to open up for hours, revealing complex aromas and flavors for those patient enough to decant. A serious wine that will evolve as the night goes on.

    Region:

    Paso Robles

    Vintage:

    2018

    Winemaking:

    The Margarita Vineyard and the Willow Creek Cabernet Sauvignon, along with the Petit Verdot, were kept in separate barrel lots for eighteen months, at which point the wines were racked out of barrel, blended, and put back to barrel for another six months to “marry”. We utilized around forty percent brand new French oak barrels comprised primarily of Nevers oak along with some Vosges/Tronçais blends. The barrels were three-year air dried with
    medium-plus toast along with untoasted heads for mouthfeel.

    Blend: 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot
