Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 93
Vinous
Brilliant ruby-red. Smoky, expansive scents of dried cherry, incense, Indian spices and licorice candy, with a suggestion of vanilla building in the glass. Sweet, seamless, deeply pitched dark fruit flavors are sharpened by a peppery nuance, picking up a floral note on the back half. Closes sweet, smoky and spicy, with excellent persistence and subtle tannins. This wild, distinctive wine was made with 50% whole clusters and aged in new Hungarian oak for five years.

Villa Creek Winery Image
Cris and JoAnn Cherry moved to Paso Robles in 1996 to open a restaurant, partake in the burgeoning wine scene and raise their children in the country. In 2001, they purchased their first grapes to make wine for their restaurant. And so began Villa Creek Cellars, their best expression of west Paso Robles' Rhone grape varieties.

Today, they farm their own certified biodynamic and certified organic vineyard, the MAHA Estate in the hills west of Paso Robles. They continue to purchase grapes from the region's most esteemed vineyards and strive to create exciting wines that reflect the land from which they originated.

The MAHA Estate is 8 miles west of Paso Robles. Extreme topography of south and west facing slopes that climb to 1800 feet continue to captivate Cris and JoAnn with the dynamic views of the coastal mountain range. The winery was erected in 2003 to house the production of roughly 3000 cases of wine each year. Monterey shale and siliceous shale provide an ideal foundation for the Rhone grape varieties planted in 2012 and 2013. Sustaining the vibrancy and the health of the land by farming the grapes under organic and biodynamic principles will, in turn, make vibrant wines. The soil is abundant in micro organisms and is the perfect host to the vines, the family and their flock of 30 Dorper sheep that graze the vineyard in the winter and spring. The energy of this site is palpable.
