Minassian-Young 2011 Grenache-Cinsault Rosé (Paso Robles)

California rosé is awfully hard to get right. It’s usually too sweet, too heavy or both. With this Grenache-Cinsault blend, Minassian-Young knocks it out of the park. The wine is dry, delicate, modest in alcohol, and complex, with subtle peach, rosehip tea, orange zest, watermelon and spice flavors. A great bargain…  — S.H.   Published 7/1/2013

Minassian-Young 2011 White Roussanne-Grenache Blanc (Paso Robles)

An interesting wine that’s far more subtle than the price suggests. Blended from Roussanne and Grenache Blanc, it displays a complex balance of fresh fruits, herbs, cashews, smoked meats and vanilla, while remaining lively in acidity and fundamentally dry. Easily the best white wine yet from Minassian-Young.  — S.H.   Published 7/1/2013

Minassian-Young 2004 Red (Paso Robles)

Just delicious, a blend of Syrah, Mourvedre and Grenache that shows how well Paso Robles can make these Rhône reds. The wine is soft and voluptuous, with complex flavors of blackberries, cherries, raspberries, milk chocolate, licorice and cinnamon spice. Finishes long and rewardingly dry.  — S.H.   Published 12/31/2007

Minassian-Young 2005 Estate Zinfandel (Paso Robles)

What a great Zinfandel this is. It’s lusty and hearty, just the way you want a Zin to wash down barbecue, but it also has balance and even elegance, despite the high alcohol. The ripe blackberry and cherry flavors are jammy, complexed with spicy tobacco and chocolate, and a pure finish of cassis.  — S.H.   Published 12/31/2007

Minassian-Young 2010 Tannat (Paso Robles)

This variety hails from the Madiran region of France. The name suggests the wine’s most pronounced feature, its tannins. They’re tough, but sweet and ripe, and will play well now against rich barbecue. The flavors themselves are spicy, suggesting raspberries, black pepper and grilled meat. A good, sound, interesting…  — S.H.   Published 7/1/2013

Minassian-Young 2005 Syrah (Paso Robles)

Does a good job of making a Syrah in a distinctly Paso Robles style. The wine is very soft and velvety, but dry, with forward black raspberry pie filling, mocha and cinnamon spice flavors.  — S.H.   Published 12/15/2008
