The 2016 The Maven (93% Grenache and 7% Mourvèdre) offers a medium ruby color as well as a big bouquet of blackberries, ground pepper, roasted herbs, licorice, and graphite. It's rich, full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, and has fine tannins. Drink this sexy Grenache any time over the coming decade.

COMMENTARY: The Maven 2016 is an impressive wine, and makes me want to look into the Willow Creek District. TASTING NOTES: This wine is powerful, yet it stays balanced and soundly-structured. Pair its aromas and flavors of red and black fruit should pair famously with a grilled ribeye topped with diced shallots. Just don't overcook the steak. (Tasted: April 29, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Spectator

Plump and lively, featuring expressive blackberry and smoky peppered beef notes that balance a plush texture with snappy acidity. Grenache and Mourvèdre. Drink now through 2024.

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.

Grenache thrives in any warm, Mediterranean climate where ample sunlight allows its clusters to achieve full phenolic ripeness. While Grenache's birthplace is Spain (there called Garnacha), today it is more recognized as the key player in the red blends of the Southern Rhône, namely Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône and its villages. Somm Secret—The Italian island of Sardinia produces bold, rustic, single varietal Grenache (there called Cannonau). California, Washington and Australia have achieved found success with Grenache, both flying solo and in blends.
