Vino Vibes ✌🍷: Josh Cellars 

Enjoyed some 2013 Cabernet from Josh Cellars this week. The more it opened up the more of a berry bomb it was. Rich dark blackberry, plum, and boysenberry. Delicious maple notes towards the end of the pallet and silky smooth #yummy

If you are in Connecticut you can purchase it at Total Wine in Manchester, CT.  You can read more about the Paso Robles and see a fun wine grape video about the wine region below….

Paso Robles is one of California’s emerging AVA’s. It has grown from a sleepy town to a high end wine growing and wine producing region. Paso Robles Wine Country is ideally located along California’s Central Coast, conveniently between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Over the past decade the number of wineries has more than tripled, and Paso Robles is now home to nearly 200 wineries. Winemaking on the Central Coast began when the Franciscan Friars traveled through California establishing Missions. The Missionaries started planting grapes in 1790. You can still see these vines growing today. Since the original plantings of the Missionaries, Paso Robles has become a top destination for farmers to plant grapes. Many famous people have planted vineyards and started wineries in this region. For example, Ignace Paderewski, the Polish pianist purchased 2,000 acres in the 1920’s. He planted Petite Sirah and Zinfandel and eventually opened York Mountain Winery; which is still in existence today.

Paso Robles is comprised of 26,000 acres of wine grapes. It is one of the fastest growing wine regions in California and on the Central Coast. It has a diverse topography. There are rivers, roiling hills, flat lands, and mountains. The soil is comprised of bedrock, weather granite, marine sedimentary rocks, and volcanic rocks. Because of the many different soil components one vineyard block could contain several different soil types.

Cheers to delicious Paso Robles Vino! 🙂

  1. Nice article! I’ve been to Paso many times but tend to go to the same places (big mistake!). I’ve added Josh to our list of places to visit. Thanks for sharing! We live in Napa but feel very happy about the growth of other CA wine regions, including Paso. Since you love wine, you may like our wine country blog: http://www.topochinesvino.com.
