Paso Robles wine country is centrally located between San Francisco and Los Angeles along California’s Central Coast. As one of California’s fastest growing wine regions and largest geographic appellation, the territory encompasses more than 26,000 vineyard acres and more than 200 wineries. With a greater day-to-night temperature swing than most other appellations in the golden state, distinct microclimates, diverse soils and a long growing season, Paso Robles is a unique wine region blessed with optimal growing conditions for producing premium and ultra-premium wines. Unlike other surrounding appellations with deep, rich fertile valley soils, over 45 soil types are found in the Paso Robles AVA. These are primarily bedrock derived soils from weathered granite, older marine sedimentary rocks, volcanic rocks and younger marine sedimentary rocks of the Miocene age Monterey Formation featuring calcareous shales, sandstone or mudstone. Between the combination of climate and diverse soils, wines from Paso Robles display vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic fl?avour pro?files. Our 2013 Gunsight Rock Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the east side of the Paso Robles appellation, just outside the town of Shandon. These vines get a lot of sunlight and good heat next to an abandoned river bed, the result is a rich balanced Cabernet Sauvignon. The thirteen percent Merlot in this wine adds a wonderful roundness to the palate, and is sourced from the vineyard next door.
