To maintain the unique characteristics of the different lots from varying areas of the vineyard, Chief Winemaker Laurie Hook monitored each of the lots through vinification and aging. The wines were then aged in a combination of seasoned oak barrels with a small amount of new oak for 17 months to both round and soften the tannins and bring in some additional spice notes. The foundation of the Waymaker is Syrah, a varietal that demonstrates great richness and generosity from Camatta Hills. Cabernet Sauvignon comprises the majority of the balance of the blend, and lends great depth of fruit as well as lifted spice notes. Finally, a portion of Petite Sirah was blended in for its aromatics and rich, inky color.

Wine AdvocateThe red wines include a good value from Paso Robles, the 2013 Proprietary Red The Waymaker, a blend of 41% Syrah, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petite Sirah, 5% Malbec and the rest Grenache, Mourvèdre and Tannat. Aged 16 months in neutral wood, the wine is Beringer's Côte the Rhône-like offering, with tasty berry fruit, loamy soil undertones, pepper, meat and loads of strawberry and cherry fruit. Drink it over the next year or so.

Wine SpectatorSturdy if rather one-dimensional, with modest notes of cracked pepper, dark plum and graphite. The tannins are a bit gritty. Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Grenache, Mourvèdre and Tannat. Drink now through 2019. 6,473 cases made.
