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.

Producer Old Potrero

Region: California

When it comes to New World wine regions, it is widely agreed that many of the finest wines are grown and produced in California. The long stretches of coastline and the valleys and mountainsides which come off them are ideal areas for vine cultivation, and for over a century now, wineries have found a perfect home in the hot, dry state, with many of the wines produced here going on to reach world class status. The state is greatly helped by the brisk oceanic winds which cool the otherwise hot and dry vineyards, which hold mineral rich soils covering vast areas and featuring many established wineries. The state is split into four main regions, the largest by far being the central valley which stretches over three hundred miles in length.

Country: United States

Whilst there are several strains of native grape varietals in the United States, it was the introduction of the European species which prompted the country to begin producing wines on a large scale. Over the past few centuries, experimentation and cross-breeding has produced great successes in regards to the quality and suitability of the fruit grown in states such as California, Oregon, Washington and New York, and the past few decades have seen New World wines from the United States reach much higher standards. Arguably the finest United States wines have always come out of California, where the climate and terrroir is most suitable for fine wine production. The masterful blending of classic grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, amongst others including Syrah and Chardonnay, have had world beating results in recent years, prompting many to suggest that there has never been a better time for buying and drinking United States wines.

Appellation: Central Coast

The Central Coast of California is a hugely important wine producing region, which makes an impressive amount of wine each year. As with many of the Californian wine regions, Central Coast benefits hugely from the hot Californian sunshine, and the superb soil types which typify the area. Central Coast itself is an impressive stretch of land, covering over two hundred and fifty miles of Pacific coastline, within which there are over 90,000 acres of vineyards. The region mainly cultivates French and Italian grape varietals, used for the production of both red and white wines of high quality and superb character. The wineries of Central Coast are dedicated to experimentation and innovation in viticulture, and as such, the region is home to many of the New World's most interesting and enticing wines.
