Popular Rosé Joins Their Award-Winning Ranks
Paso Robles, CA – After the 2015 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition awarded Mystic Hills Vineyard’s 2011 Unforgiven red blend a Gold Medal and both their 2011 Sequel red blend and 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon received Silver Medals, they didn’t slowed down. Their newly released Rosé has received nothing but praise, including a Silver Medal at the 2015 Rosé Competition. All of these wines are from the winery’s first vintage.
Bob Ecker, Director, The Rosé Competition 2015 wrote, “Congratulations! Your wine was awarded a Silver Medal in the Dry Category at The 2015 Rosé Competition at SIMI Winery. Your Rosé was selected as Silver from a field of 192 wines submitted from 19 states…quite a statement to the quality of your wine. The competition was judged by distinguished wine judges including Christopher Sawyer, Denise Gill, Debra Del Fiorentino, Rick Fraga, Sue Straight, Debra Parker Wong and Ray Johnson. Congratulations again on producing an excellent Rosé! We look forward to your participation in the 2016 competition.”
While Mystic Hills Vineyard owner Joel Cox, and Clint Eastwood’s award-winning editor, was on location his wife Judy hosted a private tasting in the Stevenson Ranch home owned by Sam and Carol Russell. “They transformed our backyard into a setting fit for a wedding reception let alone the lovely wine party that we hosted,” Carol said. “Their wine is awesome and we particularly enjoyed the rosé which they were featuring.”
Guest Debora Wright added, “We had a great time…Food, music, and friends mixed with the magic of Mystic Hills Vineyard equals a special great time.”
Michele Buttelman and Dennis Poore spent Saturday, April 25 at the Sierra Pelona Valley Wine Festival pouring wine for Mystic Hill Vineyard. Hundreds of festival guests lined up to sample the vineyard’s signature Unforgiven five grape blend. “Despite the pouring rain that started midway through the festival we had many guests return to our table to tell us that Unforgiven was their favorite wine at the festival,” said Buttelman. “We had many people ask to purchase the wine on the spot. It was so popular we poured all the wine we had and ran out of wine (as well as order forms) shortly before the end of the festival. I know we made many new wine friends for Mystic Hills Vineyard.”
And, just one more, this time Murray Wood, the Chief Development Officer of the College of the Canyons Foundation chimed in, “Judy and Joel, last night Lynda and I drank a whole bottle (yes, the whole bottle) of Mystic Hills Vineyard Rosé with dinner. It was great… loved it. We had an unfinished bottle of a different Rosé left over in the fridge. We tasted them side-by-side. The comparison was stark. Hands down, the Mystic Hills Vineyard was 100 times better, and one of the best we have tasted in years.”
