No, not what you’re thinking, stay with us here! I was performing some parental duties and in the process took the opportunity to catch up with an old friend as I was driving thru Paso Robles. A nice tasting while sitting in the sun sounded good. The weather was way too nice to miss this chance. Sometimes we forget just how amazing winter weather in California can be, sunny and 70deg.
The chosen location? “Grey Wolf Cellars" This winery and tasting room is located on Highway 46 West, 2.5 miles off of Highway 101 in Paso Robles, California. Family owned and operated, the winery facility and tasting room lie on approximately 12 acres of land overlooking rolling hills, pastures, and oak studded meadows, formerly known as Green Valley.”
As they caught up a little tasting was in order. The young lady was quick to get us setup and started with what we wanted off the list. First off a little “Roumours” Varietal: 50% Marsanne 50% Roussanne. A light fresh crisp wine with nice floral nose. Next up “The Dance” This savory, medium/full bodied Bordeaux blend is very interesting with good dark fruit and subtle oak notes. Last was “Innuendo” A Pinot Noir that is smooth and subtle with nice balance and easy drinking. This by the way is what they did. After the taste, two glasses of the Innuendo were purchased, and me and me m8 went outside and enjoyed the wine and conversation in the lovely picnic area with the calm company of a yellow lab and a small dog that probably had ‘C’ size batteries inside. There were two other wines for tasting on the list and all the wines but one were **** and the other was *** so all are great value and well worth the stop. We 'Recommend" it.
Happy Travel Adventures,
