    Villa Creek's "Willow Creek" Cuvee is a resounding example of just how good Paso Rhone Blends can be. The warm, dry climate of California's central coast has plenty of similarities to the southern Rhone Valley meaning Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre etc tend to thrive here. This particular bottling come from some of the finest vineyard sites in the region including Saxum's legendary James Berry Vineyard, celebrated by many as the absolute pinnacle of Rhone varietals in California. The blend is dominated by Grenache with its lush, exotic, brambly red fruit. Syrah provides some darker edges, smoke, and more robust structure. Mourvedre and Carignan add extra dimensions adding wild, savory, dried herb and earth nuances. This is the complete package - bursting with up front fruit but following it up with powerful structure, bright acidity and beautiful umami salted meat and earthy elements. Great now but I can't wait to check in on this in 3-5 years...I just need to "lose" a few bottles in the back of the cellar.

    The Villa Creek label is the brainchild of sommelier Cris Cherry, who sources fruit from his certified biodynamic and organic MAHA Estate in Paso Robles, but also purchases fruit from the finest vineyards in the region. The 2014 Villa Creek Cuvée is a standout wine in his portfolio, with crunchy, bright aromas of tart cherry, pomegranate, cranberry and goji berry. The GSM blend is strikingly lush on the palate, with silty, sandy tannins and a serious burst of saline minerality that prolongs the finish, begging to be savored.
