Edward Sellers Vineyards & Wines

Edward Sellers Vineyards & Wines Edward Sellers grows and handpicks most of our grapes from the calcareous-rich hillsides found on the west side of Paso Robles. All of the vineyards with which we work have been strategically planted in small blocks to make the most of the vineyards' own unique character. It is Paso Robles’s climate, soils and vineyard diversity that makes Paso Robles ideally suited for growing the Rhône varieties of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre, Cinsault, Counoise, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier and Grenache Blanc.

  Blanc du Rhône
A slight variation from the 2005 Blanc du Rhône, the 2006 features the addition of Grenache Blanc, which helps maintain the crispness of this soft, silky wine. These four varietals marry beautifully, mingling their characteristics to show fruity, spicy, and mineral aromas on the nose, and coming together in the mouth, along with a small amount of new French oak, to form an incredibly full, creamy, vanilla-laced palate. Aromas of apple blossom, mango, and honey continue through the flavors, balancing the richness with a long, persistent finish. Blend: 46% Marsanne, 27% Viognier, 15% Roussanne & 12% Grenache Blanc
In the Cognito, we blend our signature Rhone style with another Paso Robles all-star, old vine Zinfandel. Bursting with powerful, ripe aromas, the 2005 Cognito piles the best of all four varietals into one very approachable package. The nose offers brambly black fruit, plenty of spice and smoke, and hints of licorice and cocoa. The full-bodied and smooth palate leads to a lingering finish of pepper, vanilla, and tart cherry. Youthfully exuberant now and drinking beautifully, Cognito promises to improve over the next 2-3 years. Blend: 55% Mourvèdre, 22% Syrah, 12% Zinfandel & 11% Grenache
  Cuvée Des Cinq
This blend begins by hand picking the finest fruit from the most meticulously farmed vineyards found on the limestone rich hillsides of Paso Robles. Each of the five varietals contributes its own distinct character and flavor to this carefully crafted Rhone blend. After aging in French oak barrels for eighteen months, the blend comes together to create a whole much greater than the sum of its parts. Dark, plush, and inviting, the cuvee displays aromas of unending complexity. Red and black fruits are complimented by rich aromas of coffee, spices, and charred meat. The mouth is well-structured with a sweet core of ripe, cherry-like fruit. Ample tannins and balanced acidity speak to the wine’s ability to age for at least another 5-10 years. Blend: 29% Mourvèdre, 26% Grenache, 26% Syrah, 10% Counoise & 9% Cinsault
After reviewing our first release of our 2004 Grenache, Robert Parker writes, “From the Halter Ranch and Vista Creek Vineyard, the 2004 Grenache reveals raspberry and strawberry aromas and flavors in its medium-bodied personality. With plenty of volume, texture, and length, it is a good New World Grenache to consume over the next 2-3 years.” The initial perfume of bright red cherries gives way to subtler layers of crushed herb and tea rose. Lush fruit continues into the mouth, giving the wine a pleasing, round texture. This Grenache is exceptionally structured on the palate with young tannins and vibrant acidity that make it a fine complement to food.
  Grenache Rosé
The 2006 Grenache Rose is a dry, French-style Rose that complements all types of food as well as being a delicious aperitif or afternoon poolside quaff. The wine shows complex, fruit-driven aromas of heirloom melon, citron, and fresh peach. In the mouth, crisp acidity sets off flavors of sweet cherry and pomegranate. A small addition of Syrah perfects the light salmon color and adds an interesting note of exotic passion fruit to the nose.
  Le Thief
Le Thief is the other new blend for 2005. The idea was to showcase, in a blend, how the dominant variety, Syrah, could be enhanced by the addition of small amounts of Grenache and Mourvèdre. We began with a stellar selection of fruit-driven Syrahs made even richer with the addition of sturdy, smoky Mourvèdre and bright, succulent Grenache. The wine starts out with bold aromatics of jammy berry fruit, vanilla-scented oak, and saddle leather. Brambly and earthy flavors follow an explosive burst of ripe currants. Chewy in texture, the early tannin gives way to a long, velvety finish. Blend: 59% Syrah, 23% Grenache, 13% Mourvèdre & 5% Cinsault
This Roussanne is blended from fresh, citrusy grapes picked at the Denner Vineyard along with sweet, honey-like fruit from Halter Ranch. Morning fog at both vineyard sites helped the fruit to maintain exceptional balance and essential acidity, while sunny afternoons throughout the long growing season allowed for optimal development of mature varietal flavors. Grapes were whole-cluster pressed in small batches and fermented in neutral barrels for the purest expression of character. The resulting wine is one reminiscent of orange blossom, lemon zest, and ripe melon. In the mouth the wine is at once firmly structured and full-bodied. The finish is long and quenching, carrying the initial citrus notes seamlessly through to the end.
  Syrah Sélectionné
Each year we make Syrah from some of the finest vineyards on Paso Robles’ famed Westside. To create this wine, we selected the very best barrels from six different vineyard lots, blending them to showcase the finer points of each vineyard. The resulting Syrah is intensely concentrated yet elegant, with remarkable balance and a long, firm finish. Showing a concentrated garnet color, the Syrah Sélectionné truly embodies the best of Paso Robles Syrah. Bursting with jam-like fruit, the nose is reminiscent of perfectly ripened red currant and blackberry balanced by a loamy, woodsy quality. Soft yet well-structured on the palate, this wine can easily be enjoyed upon release, but will stand up to cellar aging for at least another decade.
Vertigo is one of a pair of new blends for 2005. Grenache-dominant, the wine is enhanced with earthy, woodsy Syrah and smoky Mourvèdre to create a European-styled wine with plenty of elegance and refinement. A firm, structured wine of exceptional aromatic clarity, the Vertigo shows off cherry, fresh grape, and wild berry characters in the nose, underscored by the heady scent of forest floor. In the mouth, the flavors unite with a dense and silky texture that leads into a lingering finish. Blend: 70% Grenache, 17% Mourvèdre & 13% Syrah
Dealing with fluctuating temperatures and sometimes exasperating weather patterns of the 2006 harvest definitely paid off in the Templeton Gap. Hot enough to develop the ripe, honeyed aromas of apricot preserves and star jasmine, yet cool enough to maintain the white’s bracing acidity, the 2006 season may have created the perfect Viognier. The fresh, floral nose is complemented by the full, lush feel of barrel fermentation and lees stirring. Seamless in structure all the way through the palate, the wine finishes long, clean, and with a hint of crisp melon.
