Product Overview

The 2015 Villa Creek James Berry Vineyard High Road is a blend of the best barrels off James Berry Vineyard, a benchmark property located in Paso Robles' most esteemed micro-climate. The limestone soils and multiple aspects of the blocks from this vineyard produce perfect conditions for crafting wines of length and balance. This year's High Road is classically proportioned; the core of pure fruit is enveloped by a sublime fineness of texture. This very well could be the best High Road to date. Drink 2017-2027.

Varietal Composition: 60% Syrah, 20% Mourvèdre, 20% Grenache
Appellation: Willow Creek District, Paso Robles AVA

94 Points - Vinous
"Dark purple. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet displays aromas of ripe black and blue fruits, vanilla, potpourri and cracked pepper, and an exotic Indian spice nuance emerges with air. Impressively concentrated yet energetic on the palate, offering appealingly sweet boysenberry, blackberry and candied violet flavors sharpened by a suggestion of cracked pepper. Spreads out impressively on a wonderfully long, supple finish that shows just a hint of velvety tannins." -JR, Nov/2017

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The 2015 High Road James Berry Vineyard reveals a sweet, sun-kissed nose of blackberries, crème de cassis, licorice and cracked pepper. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and layered, with a bombastic core of ripe fruit, youthfully chewy tannins and a warm, generous personality. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years." -WK, 5/31/18

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"Zesty black currant, rich milk chocolate, hints of caramel and a flash of dried sage show on the nose of this blend of 60% Syrah, 20% Grenache and 20% Mourvèdre. It's thick and a bit chunky on the palate at this early age, carrying flavors of loamy soil and black currant syrup, set against a very chalky texture." -MK, 5/1/18
