Deodoro Cellars Open House

Monday, September 13 - 4:30pm to 7:30pm
Wed, 8th Sep 2010
By Jodi Breslow

Come by and enjoy some delicious hors d'oeuvre and taste some fun wines at this wonderful open house hosted by Deodoro Cellars!

Nestled in the rolling hills of western Paso Robles lies the home of Deodoro Cellars. At this intimate, cozy winery we handcraft wines in astonishingly small quantities, lavishing care and thoughtfulness in the creation of wines with expressive, distinctive varietal character.
Our aim is to deliver that elusive nectar which pairs well with your scrumptious cuisine, yet at the same time is gloriously savored without accompaniment.
In this we have succeeded, you are invited to revel in and relish our accomplishments with appreciative friends and family. Being wine aficionados you delight in discovering small, as yet unheralded labels. 
As such, Deodoro wines are not found via major distributors. Instead you are encouraged to visit our charming location on weekends in Paso Robles, or purchase through our sole San Diego-based partner.

More information on wines available by visiting, emailing or calling Steve Haskins at (619) 548-5236

Here is some info on the wines you'll be enjoying:

2008 Chardonnay
With grapes sourced from Santa Barbara County, leaping first out of the glass is pineapple upside-down cake. Wonderful full mouth feel. Long resinous, caramel finish. Barrel-fermented in new French oak. 15 months in barrel. A true, flawless delight for Chard lovers! 23 cases produced.   $26/bottle

2007 Nepenthe
Nepenthe, an ancient Greek word for a substance that makes you forget your troubles! Ripe cabernet sauvignon and petite sirah combine to achieve the above result. Brooding dark fruit mingles with forest floor. Active front-to-back on the palate. Pleasant, chalky tannins with a cocoa finish. 50% new French oak. 75 cases produced.  $18/bottle

2007 Cabernet Sauvignon
Cab from Paso's Westside, lovely mocha liqueur wafts upward, borne on vapors of ripe dark berries, joined by hints of chipotle. Massive in the nose and palate, yet soft on the tannins. Very long, lovely finish. 100% new oak, half French, half American. 41 cases produced. $28/bottle

2007 Syrah
Paso Robles ripeness allies with Monterey County structure. Perfumed fruit nestled in leather jacket, dusted with white pepper. Full, even mouthfeel with agreeable chalky tannins. 100% new French oak. 44 cases produced. $22/bottle
