Wine Critic Owen Bargreen Tasting June 2023

Wine Critic Owen Bargreen Tasting - June 2023

"It brings me great pleasure to share one of the outstanding producers of Paso Robles. Caliza, Spanish for 'limestone', connects the name to the 20-acre Caliza vineyard located on the west side of Paso Robles. The vineyard is predominantly comprised of hillsides with south-facing slopes which leads to maximum sun exposure. Set at 900-1200 feet above sea level in Templeton Gap area, the vineyard faces strong diurnal shifts which creates some nice tension in the wines. Having visited this spot last year, it is extremely windy which further stresses the vines, producing very concentrated grapes.

Proprietors Carl and Pam Bowker, purchased this land which is located near stalwarts L’Aventure and Booker. Bowker has a degree from Napa Valley College’s Viticulture and Enology associate program and his wines have improved with each year. I love the new Caliza ‘Kissin’ Cousins’ White Wine (OB, 93) which is smooth and viscous with fantastic flavor range. Here are the outstanding new wines by Caliza."

2022 Caliza ‘Kissin’ Cousins’ White Wine- This edition of the ‘Kissin’ Cousins’ includes 38% Viognier and 32% Grenache Blanc with smaller parts Picpoul and Roussanne. It is viscous and marvelously textured with bright underlying acidity and good weight. Kiwi, sweetened gooseberry and green melon flavors combine with copious minerals and salted nut undercurrents on the palate. Enjoy this complex white wine now and over the next seven years. Drink 2023-2030- 93

2021 Caliza ‘Kankret’ Grenache- This 2021 edition was aged entirely in concrete tanks and utilizes Grenache clonal selection 362. Deep and concentrated on the palate, this shows Mandarin orange rind flavors that mingle well with ripe strawberry, red currants, and shades of stony soils. Very juicy and delicious, this is already beautifully evolved stuff that will live on for at least another ten years. Drink 2023-2033- 94

2020 Caliza ‘Azimuth’ Red Wine- The 2020 ‘Azimuth’ combines mostly Mourvèdre (44%) with smaller portions Grenache and Syrah. Smoked meats, lavender and dense dark fruits mark the nose. The palate is fresh and beautifully textured with a rich mouthfeel. Loaded with boysenberry and black cherry cordial flavors, with smoky and herbal accents, this is delicious wine that has already hit its stride. Drink 2023-2033- 94

2020 Caliza Syrah- Aged in mostly new French oak (70%), the 2020 Caliza Syrah offers black olives, blackberry jam, cigar ash and shades of citrus blossom on the palate. Neatly textured and dense, with a killer mouthfeel, enjoy this beauty now and over the next eight plus years. Drink 2023-2031- 93

2019 Caliza ‘Cohort’ Red Wine- Always one of the unique wines of Paso Robles, this 2019 edition of ‘Cohort’ includes mostly Petite Sirah (65%) with smaller parts Mourvèdre and Syrah. Aged for 18 months in 50% new French oak, this delivers concentrated blueberry compote, mocha, tar and black licorice flavors, with salty and stony undertones. Very dense, yet showing bright underlying acidity, enjoy this beautiful wine now and over the next eight plus years. Drink 2023-2031- 94

2020 Caliza ‘Companion’ Red Wine- A wine inspired by Provençale reds, the 2020 ‘Companion’ is equal parts Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon that was stored for 18 months in new French oak before bottling. Rich dark currants collide with smoked brisket, black olive tapenade and copious minerals on the palate. Really fresh and lithe, with a smooth mouthfeel, this is outstanding to savor right now and over the next seven plus years. Drink 2023-2030- 93

These favorite summer recipes and suggested wine pairings will please any palate!



Summer Shrimp Boil 


  • Water, for boiling
  • 4 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 8 oz. baby potatoes, cut into halves
  • 2 ears corn on the cob, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 12 oz. smoked sausage, cut into pieces (Hillshire Smoke Sausage Rope)
  • 1 lb. shrimp, shelled, deveined, tail-in

  4. Add the smoked sausage and shrimp, boil for 1 minute, or until the shrimp turn pink. Remove the pot from heat and drain all the ingredients using a colander. You may need to do it in two batches if your colander is not big enough.
  5. Heat up a skillet on high heat. Add the Cajun Butter and all the shrimp boil ingredients together. Stir to combine well. Transfer the shrimp boil to a sheet pan or serving platter, garnish with chopped parsley and serve immediately with a chilled glass of Albariño.

Spring 2022 Wine Club Releases

2021 Kissin' Cousins

37% Viognier, 37% Roussanne, 26% Grenache Blanc

A magnificent bouquet of young spring blossoms, nectarine, and bruised pear exude the freshness of this jovial blend. With equal parts Viognier and Roussanne finished off with a barrel of Grenache Blanc the 2021 version of our Rhone white blend is sure to excite. With a luscious mouthfeel and mouthwatering acidity, the wine ignites on the palate with flavors of baked pears, canned mandarins, and lime zest. As the saying goes, “Only the good die young” drink this one early and often for prime enjoyment! Pair it with grilled halibut tacos with a cilantro lime crema slaw or indulge in the dual-textured bacon-wrapped scallops, either will surely delight!

2019 Grenache

100% Grenache

Draped in a crimson robe, this alluring temptress seduces you with aromas of ripe cherry, strawberries, and anise before laying her grasps on you with powerful notes of raspberry compote, plum, white pepper, and bouquet garni. Silky across the palate, her sculpted tannins and rich fruit flavors gently massage your tongue into eternal bliss. Drink her in all her youthfulness for maximum enjoyment.

Jeb Dunnuck says, "The 2019 Grenache is certainly outstanding and a terrific example of the variety, which can be more difficult in California. Deep ruby/plum-hued, with a lifted bouquet of kirsch, candied violets, ground pepper, and herbes de Provence, it’s medium to full-bodied, has ripe, polished tannins, and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 5-7 years." 93-Points

2019 Azimuth

40% Mourvèdre, 40% Grenache, 20% Syrah

Intriguing. Sultry. Captivating all audiences with an intense bouquet of red fruits frolicking through rose gardens at sunset on a warm summer day. Savory notes of smoked meats and dried herbs couple with ripe black fruits to produce a wine so aromatically intense that you think you’ll smell it for days! The wine glides across the palate showing off its velvety textures and complex character. Ripe tannins and firm acidity, it is graceful in all its power and will drink well over the next decade. 

Jeb Dunnuck says, "The ruby purple-hued 2019 Azimuth reveals notes of dried flowers, rose petals, and red and black fruits as well as leather, spice, dried herbs, and cured meat. Medium to full-bodied, supple, and elegant on the palate, with ripe tannins, this complex, balanced red is elegant and seamless. I love the tannins, and it has good acidity and freshness, staying light on its feet." 95-Points

2019 Primitivo

85% Primitivo, 10% Petite Sirah, 5% Mourvèdre

Give this wine a swirl and sniff and imagine yourself on a warm spring morning enjoying a fresh out of the oven croissant with raspberry compote drizzle whilst surrounded by blossoming plum trees and violets. Now open your eyes and take a sip of all the wonders this wine embodies. Ripe red fruit, dark cocoa powerberries, and cinnamon-dusted buttercream coat the palate and leave you with subtle hints of clove and star anise. Traditionally a powerhouse wine, the 2019 is subdued with sleek elegance and sophistication. Enjoy now or cellar for 8-10 years.

2019 Sympatico

80% Tempranillo, 14% Grenache, 6% Mourvèdre

The Tempranillo-dominated cuvée finished off with a pop of Grenache and a gentle splash of Mourvèdre showcases aromas of cherry cola, chili powder, rosemary, vanilla, and excelsior. Bright fruit characters dance along with Mexican spices, mole, and ground black pepper. A very structured wine with muscular tannins the wine lingers on the finish with great length and a desire for more! 

2019 Mourvèdre

100% Mourvèdre / 60% Whole Cluster Fermentation

The second coming, and by popular demand, another staple in the lineup is this beautiful expression of Mourvèdre fermented with 60% whole cluster. Raw, savage aromas of blackened beef, leather, and damp forest floor couple with sweet notes of vanilla and dark roast coffee. The palate is filled with rugged spice, chocolate-covered fruits, wet stone, and lively acidity. The stem inclusion and native ferment provide a gentle chewiness to the tannin as the wine finishes with great length and freshness.
