More about our Wines. . .

Located in the Paso Robles Region of California’s central coast lies Asuncion Ridge Vineyards and Inn. At an elevation of 2000 ft. and just a few miles from the sea, its cool climate is a perfect location to produce world class Pinot Noir and other grapes that prefer cooler weather. A boutique winery, producing about 2000 cases per year. Our award winning ultra premium wines include Estate Pinot Noir, and red blends made with Bordeaux and Rhone varietals.

Our philosophy is a simple one "wine is made in the vineyard." To this end, all care is given to the grape production every step of the way. We believe our steep, well drained hillsides with their proximity to the ocean make it a perfect place to grow Pinot Noir. We have several clones of Pinot Noir planted including HMR, 777, 667, 115, Pomard 4 and 5 with additional vineyards planned.

We use a cover crop between the vine rows. The cover crop reduces vigor, adds deficient nutrients naturally back into the soil and promotes beneficial bugs and micro organisms resulting in healthy and sustainable soils.  The ultimate result is a very fine wine!

 

Current Tasting notes:

2012 SAUVIGNON BLANC Aromas of Grapefruit, Passion Fruit, Pear and light spice. Beautiful mouth feel with balanced acids, long finish. Perfect summer sipper!
2009 PINOT NOIR Opens with aromas of Bing cherry and earth. Mostly sourced from our Asuncion Ridge home vineyard, this is a Silver Medal winner in the 2012 Sunset Magazine International Wine competition. 250 cases produced.


2010 ESTATE PINOT NOIR Winemaker Philip Krumal thinks this could be the best vintage so far, favorably comparing it with the outstanding 2006 vintage but with a bit more body and depth. 250 cases produced.


2010 BARREL SELECT PINOT NOIR Made from 100% free run juice with our favorite clones Pommard, 115 and 777, this Barrel Select Pinot gives an initial sense of violets and roses on the nose. 6 bottle limit. 75 cases produced.


2009 SALACIOUS A classic GSM with big juicy Grenache from the Eastside Navarrez Vineyard as 50% of the blend. The Syrah and Mourvedre come from the Westside Hastings Ranch Vineyard and complete the blend at 25% each. Enjoy Salacious with a grilled filet of beef or herb-encrusted rack of lamb. 100 cases produced.


2009 3 SUM This vintage marks the four year for this exciting blend! The magic happens with 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Syrah and 14% Zinfandel. The exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon in this blend came in really ripe with full clusters and very small berries from the Carmody McKnight Vineyard on the Westside. The Syrah is a blend of fruit from the Hastings Ranch Vineyard and Zenaida Vineyard “Hell Block.” The really nice ripe fruit in this year’s blend makes this wine excellent to enjoy on its own or with a variety of food. 125 cases produced.


2010 NEFARIOUS This is our first vintage of Nefarious, a blend of 90% Syrah and 10% Grenache. Fifty percent of the Syrah comes from the Asuncion Ridge home vineyard, with the remaining 40% from the Zenaida Vineyard “Hell Block.” We are particularly excited to feature the Asuncion Ridge home vineyard Syrah, as the cooler climate on the Ridge gives this wine an exciting spicy character with white pepper notes on the finish, and nice tannins that give the wine plenty of structure. The Grenache comes from the Navarrez vineyard perched on the Salinas River bank on the Eastside. 75 cases produced.


2008 LASCIVIOUS This is an opulent wine blended from 46% Mourvedre, 29% Syrah and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon. We sourced the Mourvedre and Syrah from Hastings Ranch Vineyard and the Cabernet Sauvignon from the 5-acre Westside Tucker Vineyard. Blackberry, Plum, Cassis with coffee and dark chocolate on the nose. A fruit-forward and juicy full mouth feel with a soft, lingering finish. A perfect choice with braised short ribs, grilled tri-tip or a luscious blue cheese. 200 cases made
