Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Oyster Ridge bursts from the glass with an abundant display of both red and black fruits, all underpinned by notes of violet, graphite, caramel and black olive. An impressively integrated palate reveals seamless flavors of black cherry, plum, red currant, and cassis. The mouthfeel is broad and deep, combining approachability with staying power. Hints of toasted oak, tobacco, mocha, and spice awaken toward the finish, while sleek, polished tannins and measured acidity carry the experience to a triumphant conclusion.

Blend: 72%, Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, 3% Merlot

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Ancient Peaks Oyster Ridge Red Blend is attractive and bright. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas of blue and black fruits, some oak, and a hint of chalk. Enjoy it with the first cut from a prime rib. (Tasted: December 20, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
This vintage's blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Petit Verdot, 9% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot rides a very savory line from the nose to the finish. Black plum and cranberry aromas are leveled by chiseled charcoal and wood on the nose, while the palate's tense frame slowly releases flavors of tart red fruit, leather and toasted herb.

Ancient Peaks Winery Video

We are a family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast.

Just look at a map of Paso Robles wineries and at the very southern tip you will find our Vineyard. Here, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774.

Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast.

Ancient Peaks implements numerous sustainable viticultural practices to ensure natural quality in their wines while protecting the rich, native environment surrounding the Margarita Vineyard. Their practices have earned SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certification for Margarita Vineyard, the leading standard for viticultural sustainability.

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
