Cruising around Morro Bay last week, I wanted a case of York Mountain blended red, but they're closed for 'renovation.' My first fake ID got it's test at York Mountain when it was one of only 3 wineries in SLO county, and they sold just 3 varietals that they actually grew there. Then York got sold to Weyrich, and Weyrich went bust, and I hear Epoch bought it. Who knows what Epoch will do with the label. Maybe they'll get rid of that tacky double wide and restore the old brick building. Anyhow, we drove back down to Morro Bay and hit the Albertsons. Many central coast supermarkets and big drugstores have large wine departments featuring the local growers, and the prices are well below what you pay driveway hopping off 46. More wineries are calling their blends 'meritage.' I suppose it sounds classier, and commands a higher price than if they call blends a 'meritage' instead of just "Rock Solid Red" or "ZCS." Talley, Grey Wolf, Rodney Strong, lot's of blends, meritage if you prefer, and some prices/quality are quite attractive compared to straight varietal labels.
