Overview of the Wine
McPrice "Mac" Myers became a complete food and wine geek in his early twenties. This led him to frequent sojourns to the Central Coast, where he became a quick study of the burgeoning wine scene. Mac’s first vintage was 2002. His enthusiasm for the local vineyards in Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County was matched only by the lure of the Rhone Valley. Mac’s own wines received overnight praise from the wine press-at-large. With a keen eye on the future of California vineyards and a respectful nod to the Old World, Mac continues to impress as one of the most progressive and even-handed winemakers on the Central Coast.

91 Points - Vinous
Opaque maroon. Expressive blackberry and cherry liqueur scents take on a suble vanilla accent as the wine opens up. Juicy and seamless in texture, offering plush dark fruit and spice-cake flavors and a musky, sweetening touch of chewing tobacco. Finishes long and velvety, with well-knit, polished tannins making a late appearance.
