Production

Viticulture

The fruit for Westside is mainly from Peachy Canyon’s estate vineyards with some additional fruit sourced from premium neighboring vineyards on the west side of Paso Robles.

Vinification

The fruit is carefully hand-sorted prior to fermentation, where the cap is then managed by hand punch-downs and gentle pump-overs. After pressing, the wine is racked in to a blend of French, Hungarian, and American oak barrels where it is aged for 16 months.

Composition: 77% Zinfandel, 8% Primitivo, 8% Alicante Bousquet, 7% Petite Sirah

 

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Pale garnet, bordering on brick. Extremely balanced, with light grainy tannins, nice length and a full body. A spicy nose of bay leaves, rose petals, white pepper, coriander and anise opens up to a mouth full of raspberry brambles and strawberry-rhubarb pie. Accented with hints of ripe stone- fruit, red currants, and vanilla.

Winery Description

Zinfandel Specialists of Paso Robles

When Doug and Nancy Beckett, a couple of school teachers looking for a better life, moved to Paso Robles in 1982 with their two sons, Joshua and Jacob, they never knew the life they would lead today. The label's start came in 1988, thanks to a load of Zinfandel grapes from Benito Dusi's vineyard. Though only amounting to a couple of hundred cases, the premiere release centered the label's reputation for premium red wines.

In order to secure premium fruit, Peachy Canyon sources grapes from over twenty local growers in the Paso Robles AVA and 100 acres of their own vineyards. The winery is still headed by founding vintners Doug and Nancy, as well as the family's second generation. After years away from home, both Josh and Jake returned to Paso Robles and Peachy Canyon to work for the family business. Josh has been with the winery for nine years and has been the winemaker since 2003. Combining his varied experiences with different winemakers and regions, Josh keeps an open mind in order to create the most exciting wines possible. Jake wasn't able to resist the lure of the family business either. For years, Jake worked as the vineyard manager over-seeing the four Peachy Canyon Vineyards and working with local growers to ensure fruit quality is kept at their high standard. In 2005, Jake wanted to learn other aspects of the business and joined the sales team. Jake now is the General Sales Manager and travels the country promoting the family brand.

Zinfandels dominate the Peachy Canyon portfolio of wines. Each wine poses unique characteristics with distinguished qualities and is why the whole Peachy Canyon team works so hard to pick only the best Paso Robles fruit while supporting the local growers.
