2021 La Guera
  • Vision

    I started making wine on my own back in 2007 in Paso Robles under the label, “Bodega de Edgar’ ... prior to that, I'd worked my ass off in cellars and wineries for years, saving what I’d earned, with an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and experience. I'd work seven days a week and | never turned down an opportunity to grow as a winemaker.

    By 2007, I was able to afford four barrels and could embark on my lifelong dream of making my own wine, my way. I've come a long way since making those first 1,200 bottles, and I'm indebted to those in my family, and in my industry, who helped me grow to the point where I can finally return to my roots.

    Straight Out of Paso is my tribute to the wine region that took a chance on a young man and his dream. I am showcasing the grapes and vineyards that I believe possess the mystical ability to touch your soul the way they've touched mine. I’m honored that you've chosen to join me and invest in our journey together.

  • Vintage Notes

    Overall, thanks to a relatively temperate growing season, the timing of the 2021 harvest is about a week or two later than in recent years, with most growers pulling the first of the core white wine grapes in late August. While the region has seen smoke from wildfires up north, it didn't affect the vineyards in Paso Robles.

    The ongoing drought conditions are presenting growers with a double-edged sword of sorts. The good news is the dry conditions this vintage created smaller, more concentrated grapes, which is ideal for winemaking. While yields are lower, it produces more flavors, bolder colors, strong acidity, and manageable tannins. These conditions have winemakers feeling it's an epic vintage for quality.

  • Tasting Notes

    La Guera is a solid, yet easy drinking wine. It offers a birght nose of honeysuckle, white flowers and sweet melon. Pure, clean and compelling, it is crisp and balanced, with a clean mineral and lemon hazelnut finish.
