A Gem in the Rough

This is a story of a restaurateur in Paso Robles (California’s “Rhone Valley”) that took on amazing dimmesions.  He sources from 95-100 point rated vineyards such as James Berry, Denner, Bassetti and Luna Matta.  This winery has been flying below the radar for some time, but not for much longer! Previous vintages have scored between 92 and 95 (Parker) and 92 and 94 WS), so a solid showing.

Willow Creek Cuvée is a wine, warm and friendly like your favorite cashmere sweater.  It makes you smile when you put it in your mouth.   The aromatics of this wine show sweet spice, fennel seed, cola, strawberries, and cured meats.  The palate is mouth coating with candied fruit gelée, cherry, black pepper, and very friendly tannins.  This one is in play right now though will reward those who have the self-discipline (I hate that) to cellar for a few years.  Hint:  stick it way in the back of your cellar hidden by those cases of Harlan and Sine Qua None you are afraid to touch.  BTW, drink those!  That’s why you bought them.
