Adelaida's Recent Wine Scores

A wine score is the quickest, simplest way for a wine critic to communicate their opinion about the quality of a wine. Here are our latest:


Vinous. Antonio Galloni -  September 2015
"Jeremy Weintraub is the newly installed winemaker at Adelaida, a winery that has been a consistent performer over the last decade..."  Josh Raynolds.

2013chard 2
Chardonnay HMR Vineyard 2013
90 points.
Light gold. Musky pear skin, Meyer lemon and toasted bread on the fragrant nose. Chewy orchard and pit fruit flavors become more energetic as the wine opens up and pick up a hint of tarragon. Finishes with firm grip, an echo of juicy citrus fruits and very good persistence.

Viognier Anna's Vineyard 2013
90 points.

Pale, green-tinged gold. Potent, mineral-tinged aromas of fresh citrus and orchard fruits, honeysuckle and ginger. Smooth and expansive on the palate, offering juicy melon and tangerine flavors and a refreshingly bitter touch of pear skin. Expands and deepens nicely on the lingering fruity finish.

12-Viking Syrah

Syrah Viking Vineyard Reserve 2012
91 points.

Inky purple. Smoke- and spice-accented aromas of blackcurrant, menthol and licorice. Spicy, fleshy, deeply pitched dark berry and floral pastille flavors are lifted by a peppery note, with a floral pastille nuance building on the back half. The long fruit-driven finish features smooth tannins and a candied licorice quality.

Zinfandel Michael's Vineyard 2013
90 points

Glass-staining ruby. Fresh blueberry, boysenberry and mocha on the perfumed nose, with a floral topnote and a hint of black pepper. Gently sweet, sappy and concentrated, with dark fruit flavors complemented by peppery spices and anise. Finishes spicy and very long, with an echo of cracked pepper and chewy tannins that come in slowly.

Robert Parker
Wine Advocate. Robert Parker Jr.- August 2015 
"Located on the northwestern edge of Paso Robles, not far from Tablas Creek, Adelaida Cellars is a large, family owned estate that covers 168 acres. Made by Jeremy Weintraub, the wines are always classic Paso Robles in style and beautifully made." Jeb Dunnuck.

2013chard 3

Chardonnay HMR Vineyard 2013
90 points.

Coming from the Adelaida District in Paso, the 2013 Chardonnay HMR Vineyard is a ripe, well-made and thoroughly enjoyable Chardonnay that offers classic orchard fruits, brioche and spice in a medium to full-bodied, supple, forward and easy-drinking style. Aged 10 months in 26% new French oak (a small part was in stainless, with the balance in neutral oak), drink it anytime over the coming 2-3 years.

version white 2013

Version White Anna's Vineyard 2013
90 points.

Paso's take on a Rhone blend, Adelaida's 2013 Version White is a terrific blend of 42% Roussanne, 42% Viognier and 16% Grenache Blanc that spent 10 months on lees in 37% new French oak. It gives up beautiful richness in its white peach, toasted spice, white flowers and brioche-scented bouquet. This gives way to a medium to full-bodied, ripe, textured white that has loads of fruit without ever seeming heavy or cumbersome. Drink it over the coming 2-3 years.

12-Viking Syrah 2

Syrah Viking Vineyard Reserve 2012
91 points.

An outstanding Syrah that comes from the calcareous shale soils of their estate vineyard, the 2012 Syrah Viking Vineyard has lots of spice and cedar qualities in its blackcurrant, pepper and menthol-scented bouquet. Full-bodied, pure, layered and nicely focused, it should have a decade of overall longevity. Jeremy aged this 20 months in 67% new French oak. It's a classic Paso Robles Syrah that has both textural richness and elegance.
