Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points - Purple fruits and lavender are paired with vanilla bean, white pepper and spicy oak. Pronounced blackberry flavors with earth and tobacco work well with rich tannins and a juiciness that lasts onto the finish where it is joined by a subtle spiciness. (Jul 2015)
Beautiful, dark purple hue with intense smoky vanilla, ripe cherries, white pepper, all spice, nutmeg, and cinnamon on the nose. Super rich tastes of ripe, juicy cherries and strawberries, chocolate, mocha, leather and marzipan! Mild tannins and balanced acidity.
|The concept of Chronic Cellars came about in the midst of harvest in 2004. We had used the term “The Chronic” to describe likable objects before, but we had never considered it a suitable descriptor for wine. We sat alongside the crush pad one evening in our wine stained clothes and wet boots laughing about the idea of a wine that targeted a casual lifestyle.
Jake and I were raised in the heart of Paso Robles wine country. Wine and the art of wine making have been apart of our lives since the early 80’s. After graduating from college we both returned to Paso Robles and joined the team at Peachy Canyon Winery. After a decade each of immersing ourselves in all aspects of the wine industry we decided to do our own project. We wanted to try something new and put the tools we have gathered to work on our dream. We had a vision and a desire to make our statement in the wine industry that we could not deny. After four years we took our first step toward Chronic Cellars.
