2015 Eos Algunas Dias Zinfandel, Paso Robles
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The fruit for our 2015 Algunas Dias Zinfandel comes from a special vineyard tucked into a tiny canyon in northeast Paso Robles. Mulberry, blackberry and black pepper aromas dominate the nose followed by dark fruits and a hint of toasted oak on the palate.
2015 was another dry year in Paso Robles. An extremely mild winter led to an early bud break. There were very few frost days as our warm and mild weather defined the rest of the growing season. The fruit was harvested during September through October which was a couple weeks ahead of schedule; however, quality was high across the board.
For a region that has been growing grapes since 1797, Paso Robles has all of a sudden become one of the “hottest” AVAs in California. Located midway between Santa Barbara and Monterey, this rolling countryside is synonymous with big, rich, high-character wines. The west portion of Paso Robles enjoys a moderately cool climate thanks to the influence of the nearby Pacific Ocean. This is great ground for Chardonnay. The inland east side is warm and sunny and perfect for Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Syrah, Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
