Justin 2006 Reserve Cabernet (Paso Robles)

  1. $45

Although this Cab is quite tannic, it’s really good now. Shows impeccable balance in a New World style that oozes black and red currants, dark chocolate, licorice, cedar and plums, with a note of raw, bloody meat. Very high quality, an excellent rendition of western Paso Robles hillside Cabernet. Good through 2015, with proper cellaring.

EOS 2006 Tears of Dew Late Harvest Moscato (Paso Robles)

  1. $22

With 21% residual sugar, this is an enormously sweet wine, one of the most honeyed of the vintage. A little sugar goes a long way, of course, but this wine also charms with rich, powerful apricot, peach and vanilla custard flavors, perfectly balanced with crisp acidity. With consistently high scores over the years, Tears of Dew has taken a place in the front ranks…

Epoch Estate Wines 2011 Veracity Paderewski Vineyard Grenache Blend (Paso Robles)

  • Editors' Choice
  • Online Exclusive
  1. $65

Remarkably inky in color for a Grenache-based blend, it features strong aromas of cedar, meat and deeply purple fruit. The soft, rich mouthfeel coats the palate like a luxurious lacquer, and features flavors of blackberry jam, macerated cherry and vanilla-spiced plums. The blend of florals, herbals, fruit and oak-driven tannins is masterful. Drink now by itself or…

Saxum 2005 James Berry Vineyard Red (Paso Robles)

  1. $55

Solidly in the Saxum style, which is to say a high alcohol (15.5%), massively flavored wine of enormous concentration and power. The blackberry, cherry, cassis and chocolate flavors have all kind of overtones, ranging from licorice and vanilla to gingerbread and candied violets. Saxum has become a cult favorite, one of the highest-priced brands from Paso Robles…

EOS 2004 Tears of Dew Late Harvest Moscato (Paso Robles)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $22

This dessert wine has pushed itself to the front of the line of California sweeties, and the ’04 is a great bottling. It’s enormously sweet in late-harvest character, with apricot liqueur, pineapple tart and vanilla cream flavors that are brightened and boosted with cleansing acidity. So addictively delicious you just can’t help yourself.

Tablas Creek 2003 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc White (Paso Robles)

  1. $35

A fabulous white Rhone blend of enormous complexity and charm. Fills the mouth with butterscotch, creme brulee, pineapple, stony mineral, vanilla, impossibly ripe white peach and creamy hazelnut flavors, and as sweet as that sounds, the wine is dry and crisp. The greatest Esprit Blanc ever. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier.

Saxum 2002 Bone Rock James Berry Vineyard Syrah (Paso Robles)

  1. $52

This is awesome Syrah. It starts with wonderfully rich and inviting aromas of Provencal herbs, such as thyme, bay leaf and rosemary, and a note of lavender. The fruit is all cherries and blackberries, sweet and pure, seasoned with smoky oak. Fresh in acids, backed with firm but soft and complex tannins, this is a dramatic and beautiful wine. What a long, rich finish.

Novella 2003 Muscat Canelli (Paso Robles)

  • Best Buy
  1. $10

Paso Robles is making a play for the most congenial home in California to sweet Muscat, under any name, and this wine shows why. It’s crisp and acidic, sweet but not cloying, and offers wonderful flavors of mangoes, papayas and honey-sweetened peach pie. Addictively good, and the alcohol is only 11.5%.
