Professional Wine Reviews for Old Potrero Hotaling's Single Malt Rye 11yr

Rated 90 by Whisky Advocate
Soft and subtle aromas, but bolder on the palate. A base of creamy caramel is peppered with cinnamon heat, vanilla, brittle mint, and dried fruit. Firm oak grip on the finish balances the sweetness. Very enjoyable.

Additional Information on Old Potrero Hotaling's Single Malt Rye 11yr

Producer Old Potrero

Region: California

California has long been the New World's most important and prodigious wine producing regions, with a history which stretches back to the 18th century and the Spanish pioneers who settled here. Today, California produces vast quantities of wine, and if it were a country, it would be the fourth largest producer of wine on earth. Despite experiencing many problems in the mid 20th century, including a very serious blight which almost crippled the state's wine industry, the ideal terroir and excellent climate ensured that Californian wines soon became the envy of the New World once again. California produces a vast range of wines, and utilizes a long list of fine grape varietals, with many wineries and their produce more closely resembling those of France and other Old World countries in regards to character, practices and flavors

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.

Appellation: Central Coast

The Central Coast of California is one of the New World's most important and sizable wine producing regions, with over 90,000 acres of land under vine. The region itself is a long and narrow one, stretching over two hundred and fifty miles down the Pacific coast of the state of California, and rarely exceeding twenty five miles in width. However, it features hundreds of wineries, each of which are keen to show the world just how good their terroir is for cultivating high quality French and Italian grape varietals, which thrive under the hot Californian sunshine and in the superb soil types found in the region. Central Coast is also an important center of experimentation and innovation in viticulture, and is definitely a region to watch out for should you wish to sample some of the best wines to come out of the United States.
