Winemaker Notes

Flush with ripe, dark fruit, and rich baking spices, the 2015 Westside is a bold and varietally true Zinfandel. The bottle opens with aromas of blackberry, clove, and a cabinet’s worth of anise, allspice, nutmeg, and cocoa. On the palate, look for strawberry, huckleberry, and dessert spices like vanilla and clove. Lush fruit and supple tannins lend structure to this delectable Zin.

Blend: 79% Zinfandel, 8% Petite Sirah, 7% Primitivo, 6% Alicante Bouschet

COMMENTARY: With a solid performance of more than three decades, Peachy Canyon has become one of the respected Zinfandel produces in Paso Robles. The 2015 Westside Zinfandel shows is a good example of why this winery is highly regarded. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers loads of ripe berries and wood in its aromas and flavors. Its rich and layered palate make it an excellent choice with a savory lamb stew. (Tasted: June 6, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

Peachy Canyon, Paso Robles, Central Coast, California
Image of winery
Peachy Canyon is a small, family owned winery that has gained a reputation for their highly acclaimed Zinfandels, Cabernets and Merlots. Nestled in the Santa Lucia Mountains just six miles west of Paso Robles and 14 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean, the winery exemplifies the contrasts of a region which is ideally suited for growing a premium red wine grape. Pastoral and peaceful on the one hand, the vines grown in this area must struggle to succeed in meager soils stressed by daytime temperatures that soar into the hundreds and nighttime temperatures that plunge into the forties. This results in small yields of intensely flavored grapes.

California

Red Wine

View all wine

A major force on the global playing field, California is the world’s fourth largest wine-producing region on the planet and the majority of land under vine here is devoted to red varieties—they cover nearly double the vineyard acreage compared to whites.

While the state’s incredibly diverse terrain and microclimates allow for countless red wine styles, the one factor unifying all California red wine is the abundance of sunshine and a long, consistent growing season, which leads to well-developed and fully ripened fruit.

The most famous region today, of course, is the acclaimed Napa Valley, where Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bordeaux Blends garner global attention and in some cases, cult status.

Sonoma County, nestled between Napa Valley and the Pacific Ocean, claims great variability in geography and microclimates with vineyards climbing up mountains, reaching far into valleys and stretching along some the state’s most dramatic coastlines. Here world-class Pinot Noir is possible from Sonoma’s cooler sites while Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon do well in its warmer locations.

The Central Coast, Lodi and the Sierra Foothills also excel in the production of Zinfandel, and remain active new frontiers for Rhône and Spanish varieties.

Mendocino in California’s cool North Coast region is a fantastic source of Pinot noir.

Winemaking in California dates back to the 18th century when Spanish missionaries planted the first wine grapes. But the industry experienced its first boom with the Gold Rush in the last half of the 19th century when miners brought vines to the Sierra Foothills.
