Available Now!

Alcohol: 14.5%

Grape(s): Zinfandel

Localization: Paso Robles, California, USA

Tasting Notes: Aromas of a raspberry fruit roll-up, cherry pie, acai, cranberry-blood orange relish, red licorice, star anise, cardamom, and tamarind. On the palate, Juicy, lush, generous, balancing fruit and warm, savory spices.

Food pairing: Zinfandel wine is big, brambly, and is often described as jammy, with notes of warm spices, pepper, and smoky tobacco. It pairs especially with barbeque, spicy foods, smoked cheeses, and tangy flavors, red meat, and other hearty dishes, especially those with a hit of smoked chili. This quick and easy Cheesy, Spicy Black Bean Bake by Ali Slagle is hearty and harmonious with this Zinfandel!

The Domain: “Over the last two decades, McPrice (Mac) Myers has been crafting wines of depth and balance that showcase the multiple terroirs and climates of the Central Coast – from Santa Barbara to Paso Robles. Mac produced his first vintage in 2002 with half a ton of grapes in a small cooperative in Paso Robles. From that humble beginning, Mac has developed a growing portfolio of wines with broad appeal. In 2014 Mac moved the winery to the current site nestled amidst the rolling hills of the Adelaida District. Over the years, McPrice Myers wines continue to garner increasing attention from wine lovers and critics alike.
On a cold December day, a wine enthusiast walked into the rustic McPrice Myers tasting room to try Mac’s wines for the first time. Immediately wowed by the depth and sophistication of the wines, Venus Lai signed up for the wine club. Little did anyone know that this would be the beginning of a journey that two years later would lead to a partnership to purchase the property - 84 acres of Adelaida District land that they named Belle Terre (a play on Beautiful Earth – one of Mac’s flagship wines), which was home to the winery, 20 acres of vineyards, and a house sitting atop the hill.
The property had good bones - rich terroir, excellent climate, and a top-notch production site, but there was so much more potential to be realized. Mac and Venus shared a vision to transform the property into an experience that would live up to the quality and breadth of the wines. In 2018 the Hilltop House was transformed into a luxurious modern vacation home. They plan to showcase both the wines and the property by increasing the vineyard acreage, creating a new hospitality & tasting facility (opening 2023), and elevating the experience for wine club members. Beginning in 2020 McPrice Myers will release wines from The Estate Vineyard, opening a new chapter in its growing list of diverse offerings. Above all else we will remain true to our roots in delivering the wines and experiences our loyal customers have come to expect!”
