Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Oyster Ridge bursts out of the glass with aromas of plum, blackberry, lavender, black olive, and sarsaparilla. The mouthfeel is broad and viscous, cascading across the palate with, layers of boysenberry, black cherry, vanilla cream and polished oak. Trailing notes of caramel, graphite, and spice emerge on a long, pure finish. Through the end, the wine is impeccably balanced, with ample juiciness and intensity harnessed by its elegant structure. This wine will generously evolve in the bottle for years to come.

Blend: 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Syrah, 5% Malbec, 5% Petite Sirah

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Giving up classic cab notes of crème de cassis, licorice, leafy herbs and graphite, the 2013 Oyster Ridge Margarita Vineyard is medium to full-bodied, polished and pure, with fine tannin, good mid-palate depth and excellent overall purity and elegance. Drink it over the coming decade.
WW 90
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
The 2013 Ancient Peaks Oyster Ridge Red Wine appears to be the quintessential red wine from this region. Full-bodied and packed with black fruits and sweet oak, this wine does not hold back its regionality. The somewhat tannic finish suggests that a couple years of aging would bring the wine into better balance. (Tasted: March 24, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Ancient Peaks Winery Video

We are a family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast.

Just look at a map of Paso Robles wineries and at the very southern tip you will find our Vineyard. Here, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774.

Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast.

Ancient Peaks implements numerous sustainable viticultural practices to ensure natural quality in their wines while protecting the rich, native environment surrounding the Margarita Vineyard. Their practices have earned SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certification for Margarita Vineyard, the leading standard for viticultural sustainability.

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.
