Winemaker Notes

The old vines of HMR form a unique vineyard mix lacking a source attribution, they are a ‘massal selection’ aka the ‘HMR clone’ having evolved from a multiplicity of original vines. The HMR designation indicates that the wine is based on our best vineyard sites and the oldest vines.

This maturation translates into a succulent wine that emanates aromas of rosehips, cherry, and boysenberry jam. The flavor continues on the palate with notes of smokey mushrooms, dark chocolate, and blackberry. This wine is drinking beautifully now and will develop with age. Drink through 2028.

The 2018 Pinot Noir HMR Vineyard comes from a vineyard in the Adelaida region of Paso and was fermented with 20% whole clusters and aged 15 months in 45% new oak. This medium ruby, translucent hued 2018 has a great nose of spiced red and black fruits, sappy herbs, decaying flowers, and forest floor. With medium-bodied richness, beautiful balance, plenty of fruit, and a terrific finish, it's a beautiful Pinot Noir that certainly stands up to top Pinot Noirs coming out of Santa Barbara County and the North Coast region of California.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Aged 15 months in 45% new French oak, the 2018 Pinot Noir HMR Estate Vineyard has a medium ruby color and bright, pretty cranberry and red berry aromas with notes of earth, dried flowers and potpourri. The medium-bodied palate is silky, uplifted and fresh with bright, juicy fruits and a long finish.

Adelaida Vineyards & Winery is located in Paso Robles and is the premier winery in the Adelaida District. Founded in 1981, Adelaida Vineyards is built on a vision of excellence and their goal is to produce the most distinct and compelling wines from their estate vineyards. The estate vineyards encompass 180 acres that span across distinct areas of mountainous terrain characterized by chalk-rock limestone soils, afternoon blasts of cool coastal air, and a daily 40 to 50 degree temperature swing. These unique and varied locations led to specifically designated grape varietals. By taking advantage of the unique soil, elevation, and microclimates on the property, Adelaida maximizes fruit quality. Through meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards, Adelaida is able to express the unique and diverse character of their soil and climate.

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
