2007 Adelaida Version

To me, this is the most special wine that Adelaida produces. It’s a Paso Robles Rhône style blend that we’ve been enjoying for several years over a few vintages. It sells out quickly, according to their web site, so I guess the secret is starting to become common knowledge.

Paso Robles is about a four-hour car ride from San Francisco, so doable but not really a day-trip kind of event. We’re lucky to have great friends whose parents retired to Cambria, a quaint coastal town just over the mountains from Paso. The folks have a very large, elegant home with extra guest rooms. We just stayed with them for the Paso Robles Zinfandel Festival last weekend. Thanks again, Linda and Ken! That was an incredible time, so more to come.

Today, I’m pouring Version to get your taste buds stimulated for more Paso-liciousness:

This is an opaque purple with a nose of red fruit, tar, coffee, dried herbs and blood. Luxurious, in a bold, take-no-prisoners-style with a long exciting finish; this is chock-full of jammy red and black fruit, chocolate, and leather. It has classic Paso Robles terroir. If you’re unfamiliar with the region, or an old hand, this is worth seeking out.

Paso Robles brings back memories (and Cambria too) ; I lived in San Luis Obispo not too far and had friends in Paso. A sleepy old town in those days, not much going on, never heard of wine growers until recently! Love the design on that bottle!

I had no idea that you lived in San Luis Obispo! You’ve been everywhere! Too bad that you missed out on the great Paso Robles wineries. Santa Barbara County is really good, too. Was that popular when you lived there?
