The Wines of Calcareous
For over fifteen years, Calcare- ous has been producing award- winning, highly-rated wines. The unique soil and micro-climate are conducive to growing a wide range of grapes, including Syrah, Zinfan- del, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay.
In addition to their estate-grown grapes, Calcareous also sources a special Cabernet Sauvignon and Pi- not Noir from York Mountain. York Mountain, adjacent to the Paso Robles AVA, at a 1500-foot eleva- tion, produces exceptional fruit.
Since 2009, Calcareous con-
sistently has been recognized by industry publications, such as Wine Enthusiast, Wine Spectator, James Suckling, and Jeb Dunnuck for the quality of their wines. Some recent scores (James Suckling) include 2021 Lily Blanc (92), 2020 Lloyd, Estate Bordeaux Blend (93), and
2020 Estate Syrah (92). Consistent quality is a hallmark of Calcareous.
