Tobin James again shows they’re for making great wines and great times. We stopped in there on our way to Monterey and visited on New Year’s Day. Thankfully they were open and we sampled a wide variety of great wines from,  Sangiovese (Primo) to Zinfandel (Ballistic) to their Petite Sarah (Black Magic – formerly known as Bodacious.) As well, we gave a Star ++ to their Zin Fat Boy and as well their Barbera – Bella Bella. We continue to enjoy most of their wines, and their wine tasting facility. You should too, it’s a must visit on any Paso Robles trip.
