Chronic Cellars 'Dead Nuts' 2015
Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast. The concept of Chronic Cellars came about in the midst of harvest in 2004. They had used the term "The Chronic" to describe likable objects before, but had never considered it a suitable descriptor for wine. They sat alongside the crush pad one evening in our wine stained clothes and wet boots laughing about the idea of a wine that targeted a casual lifestyle.
