A new arrival to the NZ market, the Paso Robles region has been under vineyard since 1797 but has suddenly become one of the “hottest” appelations in California. Located midway between Santa Barbara and Monterey, this rolling countryside is synonymous with big, rich, high-character wines. This one was aged 18 months in barrel and delivers a medley of wild berry, anise, mocha and sweet spice aromas. The palate leads with intense flavours of blackberry and clove with a smokey undertone. Serious Zin satisfaction.

Its Origins

Located in the premier growing region of Paso Robles, the EOS Estate Winery has become a leading producer of award-winning varietal wines. The spectacular 104,000 square foot Romanesque facility is surrounded by 700 acres of beautiful estate vineyards. The winery is named after EOS, the "Goddess of the dawn” in Greek mythology. According to legend, every morning EOS lifted the sun over the horizon to start a new day. The production of EOS wines is unique in many ways. Prior to planting, each vineyard row is deep trenched to the depth of five feet to allow water and roots to effectively penetrate the compacted earth.Throughout the growing season, special attention is paid to leaf removal and crop thinning. Drip irrigation is employed for complete control of water intake by the vines. A 24,000 square foot, temperature and humidity-controlled barrel storage facility was built in 1999 to accommodate the winery’s growing number of French and American oak barrels, necessary for the production of world-class wines. All EOS Estate wines are handcrafted by Steve Felten, Director of Winemaking. Steve concentrates on producing food-friendly wines that emphasize balance, elegance, and pure fruit flavor.

What The Critics Say

Wine Enthusiast

"Bramble, wet slate, nori, red spice and a smoky, iodine-like element show on the nose of this bottling. The palate offers dried red fruit and a gamy quality, dashed with oregano, marjoram and a cigar-like spice."
