Paso Robles July 2010 Zinfandel Tasting

Paso Robles July 2010 Zinfandel Tasting

Paso Robles is an up and coming region for quality Zinfandels.  Located midway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, the area includes a great variety of microclimates that yields a tremendous range of Zinfandel styles.  Quality continues to improve.

Our next Zinfanatic tasting features these five Paso Robles Zinfandels:

1.  Estancia Estates Keyes Canyon Ranches Zinfandel Paso Robles (2007)

2.  Paso Creek Zinfandel Paso Robles (2007)

3.  Peachy Canyon Incredible Red Zinfandel Paso Robles (2007)

4.  Rabbit Ridge Estate Grown Zinfandel Paso Robles (2007)

5.  Ridge Zinfandel Paso Robles (2006)

This tasting marks a change in our Zinfanatic tastings.  To date, tastings have featured 10 wines from a specific region.  Moving forward, our Zinfanatic blind tastings will feature five wines.  This reduced number will enable us t provide more frequent reviews and allow our Zinfanatic tasters to provide  more thoughtful, better quality evaluations.

Watch for the Zinfanatic favorites and ratings in the next few days.
