Pinot Noir 

This fine Burgundian varietal thrives on the calcareous-shale soil and cool breezes of the Templeton Gap. Long hang-time to ripeness produces vibrant cherry flavors, fresh and bright depth and complexity to the mid-palate.


Syrah is perfectly suited to the sunny warm days and cool nights of the West side of Paso Robles. Our Syrah is big wine, exceptionally dark with deep rich tannins and flavors of dark cherry and blueberry. Bold and intense, it will age gracefully in the bottle for several years to come and will turn heads with its exceptional balance of complexity and finesse.

Zinfandel Primi 

On this austere site, planted with much-sought-after Primitivo clone of Zinfandel, vines struggle but manage to maintain a naturally perfect balance between foliage and clusters. The resulting wine displays a marked sophistication often lacking in Zinfandel. Rich, spicy flavors and deep intense pigmentation are a sure sign of fully ripened fruit. Classically structured, the 2003 drinks well now, but will age gracefully for several years.


Vibrantly perfumed and aromatic, Orchid Hill Viognier is rich and supple textured, and offers up fresh flavors of peach, mango and fruit cocktail.
