The Adams Ranch is in the Willow Creek region on the west side of Paso Robles and rests on a plateau with the Santa Lucia Mountains as a backdrop, with a steep drop to Vineyard Drive in the foreground. The vineyard is almost entirely Syrah, with some Grenache and Mourvedre peppered in. The vines are own rooted and reared in the home nursery after pruning each year. Once established, the vines are dry farmed, field-blended and co-fermented using only native yeasts and are aged in neutral oak barrels. Mark Adams has been the longtime assistant and right-hand man at the Saxum winery, where he also crafts his own wines!

This wine (90% Syrah, 5% each Grenache and Mourvedre) tickled more than my fancy. I was blown away by amazing quality of this 150 case production! The wine offers and amazing deep, dark ruby hue with lively dark stone berry notes jumping out of the glass with a touch of dust and spice. Well-integrated and complex wine loaded with a lush palate of black berries and black raspberries and a touch of pepper and bacon fat. The wine rolls over the palate with ease and finishes with a gorgeous and long finish. Only 150 cases produced!
