- Their vineyards lie approximately 11 miles from the Pacific at an elevation of 1,000 ft. The soil profile is a mix of clay and granite. 

Total production: 17 acres under vine, 8 wines, 7,500 cases

2018 Pagano - La Lomita

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    From the dry-farmed, estate-owned, old vine Pagano vineyard, this has more than once been named the best wine in Mexico. 100% Grenache, the nose unfolds in layers of stewed strawberries, grilled plum, leather, vanilla, violets and dried herbs. In the mouth, dark berries take over and blend with the vanilla in a composition that reminds one of freshly picked Himalayan black berry cobbler served with vanilla ice cream a al mode. Drinking perfectly upon release.
