Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
My favorite in the lineup was the 100% Syrah 2013 Walking Boss, which comes from the Shadow Canyon and Terra Bella vineyards in Paso Robles. Fermented with 25% stems and aged 22 months in 70% new French oak, it's a beautiful Syrah that offers textbook notes of spice, black raspberries, bacon fat and hints of cassis in its full-bodied, layered and elegant style. It's impeccably balanced and has fine tannin on the finish, all suggesting it should evolve gracefully through 2023.

Lost Blues Winery Image
I began working with wine as a teenager at Meridian Vineyards as a seasonal laborer. I operated the crushpad, dumping truckloads of fruit all day long with a 7-ton hoist and pulley. It was about the coolest thing I had ever done. I was instantly hooked, both on wine and the work involved in making it. I stayed there for a few years, learning everything I could, operating every piece of equipment, and gaining a true love for forklifts. I then went on to work for a few smaller wine producers, continuing to learn on the job and constantly furthering my wine education through drinking, reading, and taking classes and seminars.

Many harvests and wineries later, I crossed paths with Russell From of Herman Story Wines and we became friends. In 2011 I began working for him, and am now his Assistant Winemaker. Working for Russell and being a part of Herman Story helped me realize that my dream of making my own wines was attainable. And in 2012 Lost Blues was born.

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.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Blends of Southern Rhône, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
