About This Wine:
Located along California’s famed Central Coast, the Paso Robles wine grape growing region’s climate is ideal for the production of award-winning premium wines. A long growing season of warm days and cool evenings gives rise to vibrantly ripened fruit with dynamic flavor profiles that translate beautifully in your glass.
Wine grape growing in California began with the Spanish Missions. In 1787, Mission San Miguel Archangel was established, bringing wine grapes to what eventually would be the Paso Robles wine region. Years later, after the Gold Rush did not pan out, many immigrants moved south to pursue agricultural endeavors and brought along their cultural traditions — including wine.
Today, the region is home to more than 40,000 acres of vineyards, including well-placed plantings of Malbec. Iron Rock Cellars’ Paso Robles Malbec is a beautifully balanced wine that deliciously demonstrates why the region has become so acclaimed.
