    Winemaker Notes

    Vibrant notes of raspberry, violet and sweet cake batter lift from the glass. The palate bursts with flavors of black raspberry jam, cocoa. The 2016 vintage sports a lush mouthfeel with great texture beckoning this wine to accompany a variety of cuisine. Youthful acidity and chalky minerality are the backbone of this wine, while sweet oak tannins round out the finish.

    Rabble /'rab?l/a disorderly mob, fueled by passion, pushing the public to think differently?

    These are single varietal wines, uncorrupted and pure. These wines embrace characteristics of the grape (Tempranillo that tastes like Tempranillo), the place (wind and frosts of Santa Maria; extreme diurnal shifts of Paso Robles) and the mindset (how sad to think that nature speaks and mankind doesn’t listen). Labels are renditions of historical wood block prints, textured and tactile, depicting nature’s wrath. Nature is ruthless when it goes ignored.

    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.

    Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
