Winemaker Notes

From start to finish it brims with pure, focused fruit; dried strawberries, olallieberry, and black raspberry. Always floral and tremendously aromatic, it features plenty of spicy notes of white pepper, licorice, and smoky oak along with a juicy, youthfully tannic finish.

Jeb Dunnuck
The 2015 Sand & Stone is another deeply colored effort and offers a Châteauneuf du Pape-like bouquet of blackberries, kirsch, game, garrigue, and peppery herbs. This full-bodied, flamboyant Grenache has no hard edges, offers sweet tannins, and is a complex, impossible to resist red to drink over the coming 4-6 years. The blend is 52% Grenache, 39% Petite Sirah, and the balance Syrah.

COMMENTARY: I often find the charms of Grenache hard to resist. The 2015 Aaron Sand & Stone, with 52% Grenache, is a beautiful and alluring wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows bright red fruit aromas and flavors. Pair it with a spit-roasted chicken. (Tasted: April 29, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Aaron began in 2002, inspired by a desire to produce powerful, age-worthy wines from the rugged hillsides of westside Paso Robles. Seeking to create wines that veered from the norm, we chose to focus our efforts around a variety we adored, yet had no international benchmark — Petite Sirah.

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

View all products

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
