Marketing Description:

Our 2001 Los Robles Viejos white wine is a blend of Roussanne (50%), Viognier (25%), and Marsanne (25%) from an exceptional new vineyard in the west-side area of Paso Robles. I've always enjoyed the varietal wines made from these grapes in California, but felt there were ways that combining them might create something finer and more interesting, particularly if they were grown by the same hand, in the same place, and if that place was especially well-suited to the varieties. The area west of Highway 101 in Paso Robles is a glorious, archetypally "old-California" landscape: tall rounded hills, crowned by magnificent old oaks (hence the name: Los Robles Viejos), and features calcareous soils akin to those found throughout southern Europe, where that continent's great wines grow. Los Robles Viejos is really a kind of culmination of the project I began in 1985, when the first Les Cotês Sauvages wine was produced, where the aim was to generate California wines from the same varieties grown in the South of France, that would exhibit a similar kind of equilibrium and spirit -- generous wines with abundant perfume, yet finely balanced, so that despite the weight of ripeness, they could dance across the palate, angels on the head of the pin
