Winemaker Notes

Terry Hoage's flagship Syrah, The Hedge, remains one of the most popular and sought after wines in our lineup. It was the first wine produced by Terry Hoage Vineyards, and the name pays homage to the famed hedges of UGA, where Terry got his football start playing for Coach Vince Dooley. The 2002 and 2003 vintages were made by Justin Smith, of Saxum, who mentored the Hoages in the beginning. The fruit he used came from a part of our vineyard that was planted under the guidance of John Alban. This small block of Estrella clone Syrah was the only fruit growing on the property when the Hoages acquired it in 2002.

Critical Acclaim

RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A quintessential Paso Robles Syrah that delivers the goods, the 2010 Syrah The Hedge is a lush, decadently styled red that stays beautifully fresh, clean and oh so drinkable. Offering up notions of smoked black fruits, flowers, chocolate, sweet spice and mineral on the nose, it hits the palate with a full-bodied, seamless texture that has no hard edges, gorgeous fruit and clean, integrated acidity. Already approachable and hard to resist, it will shine for 8-10 years. Drink now-2022.
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Broad and expressive, offering complex spice, wild berry and crushed rock flavors, with a supple texture that softens the tannins a bit. Slow to unfold, but does so beautifully. Drink now through 2023.

Terry Hoage, California
Focusing solely on Rhone-style wines, Terry Hoage Vineyards is a 100% organically-farmed estate in the acclaimed Westside of Paso Robles, California. Just off Highway 46, the special climate and unique terroir of Terry Hoage Vineyards produces exceptional fruit that is forward and focused. Their unique approach to winemaking and sustainable practices has Robert Parker saying: "This is the kind of wine the Central Coast should be producing more."

The wines are created using a minimalist philosophy. Using 100% French oak, the Hoages craft their wines without racking, fining or filtering. The only time the wines are moved is during the bottling process. With extremely minimal processing, the wines deliver intense fruit flavors and showcase Terry Hoage Vineyard's dedication to winemaking.

Paso Robles Wine

Central Coast, California

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 Rhône Blends of the south, 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.”
