Grey Wolf Cellars – Joe Barton

Grey Wolf - Lone Wolf

http://www.greywolfcellars.com – 2174 Highway 46 West – Paso Robles, California

I love this wine – I really wanted to write a specific review on my favorite varietals but I found that impossible because I PRETTY MUCH LOVE THEM ALL! My New Hubby and I stumbled upon this winery about 3 years ago (we just started dating then) & (literally stumbled) and just fell in love with every wine that hit our lips. One wine really struck us not only because of how wonderful and smooth it tasted but because of the name, “SOULMATE” (new couple thing – I know oh how cute!!) Side note we bought more cases than our trunk could hold but we saved until our Wedding night the very last bottle of Soulmate that we bought on that first trip in 2005.

This is a family winery and the young, adorable and award winning hotshot wine maker “Joe Barton Jr” is amazing – They have an Old World Wine Making Philosophy – They are very hands on and use only French Oak Wine Barrels and American Oak Wine Barrels. All their wines are crushed, barreled and bottled on the estate.

Here is a list of all the wines here that I have personally had the pleasure of swirling and swallowing!!!
LONE WOLF – Red Table Wine – We bought cases of this “everyday drinker”
2005 SOULMATE – Red Rhone Blend – Wedding Night Wine – That says something about how great this is and in 2007 we went back for more!!!
2006 ZINFANDEL – The Jackal – This Zin does have attitude
2005 CABERNET SAUVIGNON – Alpha – YUM
2005 ZINFANDEL – Barton Family Reserve – Oh Yea – So great
2003 BARTON ESTATE – Red Estate Blend – Thumbs Up
2004 BARTON ESTATE GROWN CABERNET SAUVIGNON – Yummy
2005 ZINFANDEL – Big Bad Wolf – The after party after drinking this was amazing – Ha
2004 Petite Verdot – Silky and smooth like the website says -

All the wines here are excellent and if you get to Paso Robles (Highway 46 West) do not pass Grey Wolf Cellars up!!!

Cheers

Cathy

    Must Try!! We purchased a bottle of Grey Wolf from Paso Robles, decided to try something new with family and friends and WOW! It was a success everyone enjoyed “The Wolf” as we now refer to it. Love to find the treasures that are right in your backyard. Looking forward to tasting more from the “pack”. hehe
