Hey check this out, awesome winery in the San Diegos North County. The cool Cedros District in Solana Beach is home to Carruth Winery. Adam Carruth has brought his wine making skill to his own location in Solana Beach. Before you ask the grapes do not come from San Diego. Adam brings grapes from some Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles and creates an incredible array of wines from a great Lake County Sauvignon Blanc to a Paso Robles Petite Sirah.

Nancy and found this place cruising the coast a few weeks ago and find ourselves going back. This Sunday we enjoyed not only a great wine tasting but Adam was dipping into the barrels with the Wine Theif. Nothing like a barrel tasting. We also did some blending that was a lot of fun.
The 2008 Petite Sirah was a big hit with me. Dark bold Sirah, not matter how you spell it. A real teeth stainer! Tannins are robust but just where you need them. Color and Appearance are great, Aroma could be a bit more balanced overall experience is great. This wine a 16 pointer on the scale
