About This Wine:
The Highlands is a relatively remote area where there are no fancy tasting rooms or bed-and-breakfast inns for which Paso Robles has become known in recent years. This is an area that’s all about farming, and wine grapes are the stars.
Syrah has proven to fare particularly well in the Highlands, as the weather and soil combine to produce fruit of true varietal character — and that means with a mild smoky quality that lends itself well to aging in oak barrels prior to bottling.
That smoky note makes Syrah an especially tasty pairing partner with the culinary specialty of the Central Coast region: Santa Maria-style tri-tip steak, grilled over oak chips. The 2019 Bodega Mariposa Syrah from the Paso Robles Highlands district is a benchmark wine that deliciously defines a region, a style and a winemaker’s talent.
