Tasting Notes

Notes from winemaker Paul Draper: "Warm days at season's start and a short crop set the stage for the earliest harvest on record. Flavor and sugar developed in tandem; we started picking on August 18, and finished six days later. In a majority of tanks, the grapes were held submerged, completing natural yeast fermentation within eight days. After waiting two months for malolactic to begin, we lost patience, and put the wine in barrel. As expected, it finished in its own sweet time - the following spring. Aging took place in air-dried american oak barrels, a quarter of which were new. We taste for balance of fruit, oak, and structure; in keeping with the vintage, the 2004 Paso Robles was bottled early. Already rich and sensuous, it will develop fully over the next four to five years."
