Chumeia Vineyards

1949 visitors

In 1999 Chumeia Vineyards was formed with the purchase of 20 acres of land eight miles east of the Central Coast city of Paso Robles, California. Lee Nesbitt’s dream of building a winery was coming to fruition. In June of 2000 ground was broken and construction was underway. It took just over 90 days to construct a 5,400 square foot facility with a capacity to produce over 7,500 cases. That fall, the winery was ready to receive its first load of fruit on the new crush pad just twenty minutes prior to receiving the temporary occupancy permit from the Fire Department.

2005 Barbera
Paso Robles

Blueberryville meets Strawberry street. If there were such a thing, this wine would live there! Zesty fruits of blueberry wrapped around lush strawberries. Layers of vanilla and co ... morecoa dust the mid palate. Snazzleberries—another great adjective for this wine!

2002 Cabernet Sauvignon, Basport Vineyard
Central Coast

Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are known for producing remarkably lush and rich wines, and thus this varietal is a staple in the Chumeia portfolio of wines. This wine has beautiful dark ... more purple and red colors. Deep notes of dark berries, plum, and cedar are followed by subtle hints of clove, spice and earthiness. Firm tannins and balanced acid add to the dense structure. Enjoyable now, this wine will also age well through the next eight to ten years. Try matching this wine with grilled Bleu cheese stuffed flank steak roll marinated in Olea Farm olive oil.

2005 Zinfandel Dante Dusi
Paso Robles

Balance is always the goal for any wine and winemaker. Forcing a wine to do something it’s not intended to do is a big no no! This wine is loaded with forward fruit of fresh rasp ... moreberries followed by silky tannins, balanced acids and a touch of spiciness. The 2005 in our opinion jumps rope on a razor blade—the perfect combination of power and finesse!

2005 Cabernet Sauvignon

Stout acids, firm tannins and a myriad of robust aromas of dark berry fruits, rose petals and bright cherries…what else do you need? This Cabernet will age well over the next few ... more years. The acids will integrate fruit and the tannins will soften over time, leaving the wine with a silky mouth feel. This wine will do great things!

Enjoy this wine: Enjoyable now or age this wine through the next 5 years. Try this Cabernet with a Cabernet and fresh herb marinated beef tri-tip, grilled to your liking.

2006 Chardonnay

“Pow! Bam! Smack! Same bat time same bat channel…This Chardonnay really kicks it up a few notches. Full throttle and drenched in tropical flavors of pineapple, and butter, it s ... moreounds crazy but wait until you taste this one. A tidal wave of tropical tones, soft butterscotch and then the butter hits you like a wave—pow! Mild acids and cushy oak tannins allow a long lush finish. Enjoy!” Winemaker, Lee Nesbitt

Pair this with crab cakes and Chardonnay cream sauce, grilled chicken with a tropical mango/lime salsa or grilled artichokes marinated in garlic and butter.

2005 Pinot Noir Argentina
Mendoza, Argentina

“As we all know, the popularity of Pinot Noir is hotter than the surface of the sun. The hard part about enjoying Pinot Noir is finding one that tastes great at a reasonable pric ... moree - well look no further! We scoured the southern hemisphere and located a fantastic Pinot Noir in Mendoza, Argentina. As we finalized the blend in Argentina, we knew we had something special.

This Pinot Noir is made in a fruit forward “California” style. The nose is filled with cherries, strawberries and a plethora of other mixed red fruits. The myriad of fruit aromas carry over to the palate and are charged up with a healthy dose of cedar, mint and a touch of sage. The palate is well-structured with balanced tannins and stout acids, giving the Pinot Noir a long and lingering finish. A very knowledgeable wine producer once explained that Pinot Noir should be an iron fist in a silk glove. Need we say more!” Winemaker Lee Nesbitt

2005 Silver Nectar

A truly aromatic wine, the Silver Nectar offers aromas of honey and apricots, followed by a soft hint of honeysuckle. On the palate, peaches, honey and lychee fruit dominate, balan ... moreced by a pleasant layer of acidity. This remarkably well balanced off-dry wine will complement a variety of cuisines from around the world and is also delightful to enjoy on its own. The moderate acidity and forward fruit flavors will complement spicy chicken satay, dim sum, Spanish Paella and beef or pork empanadas.

2006 Viognier

“This vintage is 100% Viognier, 100% stainless steel fermentation, no malolactic fermentation and no oak…just great Viognier! Take in big aromas of lush stone fruits like peach ... morees, apricots and nectarines and a hint of Lychee nut. The mouth feel and flavor begins with the stone fruit flavors followed by lush texture and a powerful finish. Enjoy!” Winemaker, Lee Nesbitt
