Viticulture

Between the pandemic and smoke from the Northern California wildfires, 2020 was an interesting year to say the least. The growing season started with budbreak in March leading into a warmer than normal summer. In July, the vines were healthy, producing ample canopy growth, and uniform clusters. Record heat in August and September hastened ripening; however atmospheric smoke blocking the sun, protected the fruit from damage. Micro-ferment testing for smoke effect on the wine found low to zero traces. Wines from 2020 exhibit a fruitier nose and will be a bit lighter in style; overall quality is excellent.

Vinification

The fruit was sorted, de-stemmed, and transferred to tank. After a two-hour cold soak, the fruit was pressed, racked, and inoculated with yeast to start a long cool fermentation. After optimum sugar and acid levels were reached, fermentation was halted by chilling the wine down to 30 ̊ Fahrenheit. The wine was kept chilled for two months to maintain the aromas, phenols, and a natural effervescence. After a final filtration, the wine was bottled and released.

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

The Muscat Canelli reveals enticing aromas of Jasmine blossoms and Mandarin zest intermingled with flavors of white peach, Meyer lemon, ginger, with bursts of guava.

Driving Force Behind the Wine Industry in Paso Robles

Gary Eberle is one of the pioneers of the wine industry in Paso Robles. He was part of a small group of early winemakers that lead the charge to get Paso Robles certified as an appellation, while at the same time establishing his own winery. Gary was fascinated by Syrah, which was not yet planted in California. Based on the seedlings of California State University, Davis owned that had been grown in Chapoutier, Gary began planting clonal lines of Syrah in the field of 20 acres. The wine released in 1978 was the very first 100% Syrah in the United States. Wineries from all around became aware and gradually his new attempt, as a premium wine-producing area of the Rhone-based blend, Paso Robles has established its position today.
"For me, making wine is about elegance. I pay attention to detail. As I like to say, my science background gets me through harvest, but it's my artistic side that helps me in blending and creating beautiful wines." - Ben Mayo, which is also the winemaker. We regard wines as a work in progress never-ending winemaking.
