God Loves a Terroir

You expect to win Best in Show with that BLEND? Pshaw.

Up next in the Terroir group is the Paso Robles Syrah. Accompanied by "Big Rock" is his handler, Michael Gill. And what a beautiful vintage he is! You see how he demonstrates that deep color and full body? It takes years to master that perfect marriage of terroir and Rhone character. Truly a joy to see. It says here that before big shows like this, "Big Rock" often takes some quiet time to decant and breathe.

And here comes "Tantrum," also from Paso Robles. This vintage is two years old, and as you can see, has quite the nose of vanilla-flan aromas and boysenberry. It's a hearty little wine with a rich ruby color that hails from the steep slopes of the vineyard and OH DEAR, that's going to cost him. Well, folks, as its name "Tantrum" suggests, this wine can be a bit Tempranillo. As such, this wine isn't recommended for homes with small children, but is indeed very food-friendly.

Features

2010 Michael Gill "Big Rock" Syrah, Paso Robles 750ml

A deep color and full body – a beautiful marriage of terroir and Rhone character. This fruit bomb has aromas of cassis, dried cherries, cola, chocolate, and creamy vanilla hints of licorice, nutmeg and white pepper. There is an ever so slight teaser of smoke interspersed within its blackberry-bramble body.

Hearty stews, peppercorn steak, caramelized onion pizzas would all pair with this luscious wine. Best to be decanted and allowed to breathe prior to serving.


2012 Michael Gill "Tantrum" Tempranillo, Paso Robles 750ml

The Paso Robles terroir is the ideal growing environment for a hearty Tempranillo.  Harvested from the very steep slopes of our vineyard, the low yield offers highly extracted flavors and a rich ruby color.  The nose has profound vanilla-flan aromas with a delightful addition of boysenberry.  The finish has a subtle touch of mint. 

This is a limited production, food friendly wine.

2012 Michael Gill "Tantrum" Tempranillo, Paso Robles 750ml

Hints of blood orange and grenadine emerge in this bright wine. A subtle presence of milk chocolate evolves into a dried cocoa surprise. A pomegranate and berry compote nuance coupled with allspice shows as the wine opens up. One can almost detect a pfeffernusse cookie hint on the finish.  This wine drinks like velvet and has been said by some to be a Christmas wine. Enjoyable by itself or paired with any grilled foods or even some desserts.

Winery Details

Owner:
Michael Gill
Location:
Paso Robles

Nestled within a rolling landscape of oak trees, the vineyards are small, potent, and exquisite. The westside Paso Robles coastal estate takes full advantage of the excellent natural conditions: the mountainous terroir is known for its rocky, calcareous soil, and differing levels of hillside sun exposure allow vineyards to be specifically sited for each varietal.

This gives founding vintner, Michael Gill, the opportunity to cultivate luxurious wines unmatched in quality. Inspired by the historicism and beauty of illustrious French hunting lodges, the tasting room inspires images of time gone by. Nestled in the midst of surrounding vineyards and centuries-old oaks, it evokes a classicism and indulgence often unfound in Paso Robles.

Producing up to 1,000 cases when in full production, Michael Gill Cellars strives to stay at a smaller scale to keep as much consistency, control, and excellence in the wine as possible.
 
From the limestone-rich soils to the hot days and cool nights, Michael Gill Cellars has the perfect growing conditions to elegantly ripen such Rhone-style varietals as Syrah, Viognier, and Counoise. As a family vineyard, the vines receive the utmost care from founder Michael Gill, as well as other members of the family, to ensure both proper care and quality from the vine to the bottle.
