Visiting Paso Robles, CA
How is the weather where you are? Even though the calendar says it’s still fall it looks more like winter outside my window. The temperatures feel more like winter too. That’s why I was happy to get a way to Paso Robles, CA.
Paso Robles is on the central coast of California and it’s beautiful! The temperatures were in the 6o’s and 70’s during the day and dropped to about the 50’s at night. The landscape was breathtaking. You can drive up and down Highway 101 through the mountains overlooking the coast.
There are also wineries as far as the eye can see. Most all of them have tasting rooms where you can sample their multiple varieties.
One of the wineries that I spent a bit of time at was Wild Horse Winery. They have a vast variety of wine. Two of my favorites were the Verdelho and the Malbec.
Wine Profiles & Tasting Notes
2012 Wild Horse Verdelho Paso Robles
This is an extremely tasty wine with aromas of lemon, melon, peach, and apricot. Slightly off dry, the mouthfeel is full and intense but also light at the same time. Hard to explain so you’ll have to partake. With a lot to gain from tasting this wine, enjoy as an aperitif or with a light meal such as Caesar salad or a rustic cheese plate.

Looks like an amazing trip. I especially like the feeding the llamas. I’ve heard they can have strong personalities. Ha ha. And horse back riding is so fun.
They do have personalities! Their ears go back when they’re annoyed like my cat’s.
