Glass-staining under $45, 94-Point Rated Red

Chris and his wife JoAnn Cherry moved to Paso Robles in 1996 to open a restaurant, partake in the burgeoning wine scene and raise their children in the country. In 2001 they purchased their first grapes to make wine for their restaurant. And so began Villa Creek Cellars, a real expression of west Paso Robles’ Rhone grape varieties. A sort of “farm-to-table” i.e farm-to-bottle venture.

Vinous 94 Points: “Glass-staining ruby. Highly fragrant scents of black raspberry, boysenberry, Indian spices, baking spices and candied flowers, along with a smoky element that builds in the glass. Smooth and seamless in texture, offering palate-coating red/blue fruit, spice-cake and floral pastille flavors that deliver an appealing marriage of depth and energy. Closes spicy, gently tannic and very long, leaving repeating spice and floral notes behind. This is the wine formerly known as Willow Creek Cuvée.“

Winemaker Notes:
    Aromatics – Brambly red berries dominate with braised lamb, Provençall herbs and green tea ice cream. Pure, clean.
    Palate Impression – Medium plus weight with grippy tannins; red fruit going brighter on the palate. Sweet cream on the finish.
    Acidity – Classic Westside Paso Robles snap!
    Oak Impression – Moderate with some Xmas spice and cream.
    Blend of 75% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre, 5% Carignan
