While the crop was tiny due to the cool bloom in the Spring, the 2015 vintage rewarded us with beautiful, elegant fruit that had earlier flavor development than in years past.  This allowed us to pick sooner at Jada and to keep the alcohol percentages down.  The results were nuanced, textured wines more reminiscent of the Rhone Valley & Bordeaux rather than the big, fruit bombs for which Paso is typically known.  While still dense, rich, and flavorful, the 2015s are more subtle & complex than in years past and they underscore the adage that "less really is more".  The 2015s should go a long way in dispelling the myth that Paso can only produce big, fat, over-ripe wines that lack complexity, differentiation, and age-ability.  

If being awarded "Wine Region of the Year" several years back by Wine Enthusiast wasn't enough, the 2015s are another reminder why Paso Robles is today considered one of the great wine regions of the world.

"Paso Robles: Taming the Beast"

Paso Robles: Taming the Beast

BY JOSH RAYNOLDS | SEPTEMBER 29, 2016

 

“Paso Robles is currently one of the hottest regions in California, and it’s not just the weather. While there were just a relative handful of highly ambitious wineries here at the turn of the century, that number has been growing steadily, with new producers like Clos Solene, DAOU, Desparada, Ledge, Aaron, The Farm, Law and Turtle Rock recently making their mark. In addition, established producers such as Adelaida, Lone Madrone, Halter Ranch and Jada have significantly stepped up their games and must now be counted among the Central Coast’s best wineries. The region’s burgeoning wine scene can only mean increased pressure on all producers in the area to keep up with a growing number of leaders, which is excellent news for everybody, especially consumers.”
