Artisan in Paso Robles in California: Dining Posted October 17, 2008 Yes, we need to stock up on some Zin to go with our Venison my husband and son got when they were hunting in Oregon a couple of weeks ago. My husband made a Venison Spinach Linguine with an Alfredo sauce last week that was really good. We are also interested in picking up some great Merlot in the area for the cooler months ahead. ←SG~I don't think I've ever tasted merlot in Paso. What do you buy?
