Chateau La Paws was created by veterinarian turned winemaker Kent Rosenblum to be well crafted wines, approachable and easy on the wallet. When they first appeared, it was agreed that they were great examples of Rosenblum wines at every-day table wine prices...well, sort of. Most were in the $15-$20 price range which is cheaper than their Rosenblum label but still a little much when going after the value-conscious market.
Now, that is no longer the case. They've dropped their prices!
They currently offer 7 wines ranging from $10 to the most expensive at $13. Now those are better numbers that agree with my wallet. The "Cote du Bone Blanc" is a playful white while "Cote du Bone Roan" is the sibling red version based on French Rhone styles. A Mourvedre, Syrah, Petite Syrah and 2 Zinfandels fill out the line up.
I tasted these a while back but unfortunately don't have copious notes on each. From what I concluded however, was they were all very good. Don't expect the transcending-effects that Rosenblum single vineyard wines deliver but if you've got chicken or burgers on the menu after a shitty Tuesday at the office and need a glass or two to accompany the far-from-gourmet dinner you've prepared, these won't fail you and could quite possibly lift your spirits in the process.
