We had a lot of fun at Venteux Vineyards. The wineries in Paso Robles are very low key where you usually get to meet with the owners in the tasting room. Venteux is a perfect example. We visited during the Paso Robles wine festival and we were treated to free tri-tip sandwiches which was a nice touch. Plus we had a lot of fun with the servers who were very friendly. The vineyard also has a B&B if you feel like spending the night!! The wines are good so definitely worth calling by

2004 Syrah, Paso Robles ($38)Rating: B-C
May 18th, 2008
Definitely drinking better than the 2005 Syrah and has much better balance. The extra year in the bottle shows the difference. Still has a big finish. Described in the winery as "If this wine were an actor it would be Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean". Not sure what that is supposed to mean!!

The description in the winery states "muscular, dark and handsome like Denzel Washington in Malcolm X". Interesting description for a wine. It is very chewy with a big finish. Could do with more time in the bottle
2006 Petite Syrah, Paso Robles ($38)Rating: B
May 18th, 2008
Way too early. Big fruit and long finish. Big tannins. This should improve with time and I'd like to come back to it in a few years

An ok every day drinker but you would definitely get bored of it if you drank too much. Very light. Little fruit and finish
