Winestyr Review

A concentrated and intense Petite Sirah-based red wine, this wine has true aging potential and reveals beautiful fruit as it gets more air. This wine has layers of fruit and spice flavors and a voluptuous mouthfeel. I'd recommend at least an hour or two of decanting. This wine exemplifies the intensity and restraint of Templeton Gap AVA fruit. 56% Petite Sirah, 24% Zinfandel, 16% Syrah, 4% Grenache.

What We Love

  • Petite Sirah leads this concentrated blend
  • Templeton Gap AVA
  • Intense and concentrated - ready for the cellar

This is a wine for connoisseurs - ready for the cellar, yet drinkable now with proper decanting

Experience

The property that would eventually become St. Peter of Alcantara Vineyard, Guyomar’s estate vineyard, is located in the western part of Paso Robles AVA, known as the Templeton Gap. St. Peter of Alcantara benefits from ocean influence; the afternoon winds that cool the region during the growing season, as well as the increased rainfall that benefits the westside of Paso Robles. The St. Peter of Alcantara Vineyard is farmed on the philosophy that dry farming is king; that one should grow quality fruit with the least amount of water input as possible, to produce fruit with great character and depth. Because of its unique growing conditions along with meticulous vineyard practices, St. Peter of Alcantara Vineyard is blessed to have never required irrigation.

The vineyard was established in 1998, and Guyomar Wine Cellars' first wines, the 2010 vintage, were released at the end of 2013.
