Viticulture

For the first time in years Westside is primarily an estate wine. Made from a combination of excess wines from vineyard designate programs and from the tart, dark Dupratt Zinfandel grown on about 60% of the Old Schoolhouse Vineyard, we feel that this wine over delivers. This delightful wine was put together in late April of 2021.

Vinification

The bulk of this wine spent close to 18 months in barrel and is an impressive testament to what Peachy Canyon's five vineyards across the west side of Paso Robles are capable of in great years.

Composition: 96% Zinfandel, 4% Petite Sirah

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Aromas of mixed berry pie, graham crackers and vanilla, give way to flavors of red currants, strawberries and pomegranates. This delicious wine has medium tannins and a long, silky finish.

Pairing

Enjoy it with brisket, roast chicken and tomato based pastas.

Producer Description

Zinfandel Specialists of Paso Robles

Peachy Canyon Winery is a family-owned and operated winery in Paso Robles, on California’s Central Coast.  Founded by Doug and Nancy Beckett in 1988, and considered one of Paso Robles’ earliest 10 wineries, Peachy Canyon has long been praised as a producer of award-winning California wines that epitomize respect for terroir and dedicated winemaking.  With our exemplary Zinfandels, Peachy Canyon was instrumental in establishing Paso Robles’ reputation as a key California wine region.

 
Today, Peachy Canyon Winery is managed by 2nd-generation owners, Josh and Jake Beckett, who spent their childhood in the vineyard and winery alongside their parents, Doug and Nancy.  During their decades long career path in the industry, the brothers recognized an opportunity for more unorthodox brands in the market.  In 2004, they took a leave from Peachy Canyon to create their own brand, Chronic Cellars.  Through shrewd marketing and remarkable quality wines, they built Chronic Cellars to 17,000 cases before selling to Winery Exchange in 2014 and subsequently completing the five-year buyout agreement in early 2019.  Promptly thereafter, Josh and Jake returned to Peachy Canyon Winery to relieve their parents of the daily operations and responsibilities of the family business.
 
Although Peachy Canyon has historically been known as a Zinfandel house, a full 40% of what is planted today is Rhone and Bordeaux variety based.  Josh and Jake recently acquired some new vineyards. The family now cultivates 102 acres planted on Paso’s westside, all within the 3 most coveted sub Ava’s:  Willow Creek, Adelaida and the Templeton Gap.  Future plantings will include Zinfandel, Rhone and Bordeaux varieties as the brothers are interested in continuing to develop their production of Estate wines and blends.  Beginning with the 2019 vintage, Peachy Canyon will use fruit exclusively from its 102 acres of family-owned, estate vineyards in Paso Robles.
