Mission Point Winery is rooted in the laid-back lifestyle of California’s Central Coast. Sourcing grapes from small, family-owned vineyards located on the back roads of Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and Monterey counties, the wines of Mission Point are approachable, bold and unique.
Each micro-batch of wine is carefully designed to appeal to today’s wine drinker, not some collector who will be outlived by his cellar. These wines are fruit-driven but are aged in premium French and American oak barrels that give them a rounded edge, making the wines a robust accompaniment to all sorts of cuisine.
Our winery favors the rustic style, where we take our time producing the wines for your enjoyment. Whenever we can, we use old fashioned man-power rather than electric-powered equipment. We only buy grapes from vineyards that practice sustainable farming, and our commitment to the future of our pristine Central Coast environment is apparent throughout the facility.2007 Mission Point Chardonnay – Satiny, ultrarich and deeply complex, with layers of floral, butterscotch, fig, apricot and pear flavors that are impeccably balanced; while the flavors are bold and concentrated on the entry, this wine turns amazingly elegant and sophisticated on the finish. Goes great with summer’s bounty on the grill.
2006 Mission Point Red – Central Coast: This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Zinfandel and Barbera. The wine is bursting with wild berry and mountain blackberry, followed by allspice and white pepper. Berry flavors are persistent throughout the palate leading to a ripe but evident tannin that lingers. The aroma is of raspberry, ripe plum and cedar followed by white pepper with vanilla and caramel. The mid-palate offers jammy raspberry fruit that leads into round, chewy tannins which linger through the finish.
Mission Point Pinot Noir
– Central Coast: This is a tight, firm, concentrated
Pinot, with chewy tannins but also a rich, detailed array of ripe
plum, blueberry and blackberry. There's a minerally pebble edge under
the fruit and a finish that has firm tannins and a hint of cedar and
citrus. Ready to drink now, but can benefit from cellaring through
2009 or so.
