About this Wine

Vineyards

Located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles along the Central Coast, the Paso Robles AVA is California’s fastest growing wine region and largest geographic appellation.

With a greater day-to-night temperature swing than any other appellation in California, distinct microclimates, diverse soils and a long growing season, Paso Robles is a unique wine region blessed with optimal growing conditions for producing deep, complex Cabernet Sauvignon. Our vineyards are exposed to a combination of warm daytime temperatures, cool nights and granular calcareous soils which allow precious Cabernet grapes to maintain their natural acidity.

Winemaking

Stainless steel fermentation; 6 months barrel aging in 100% American oak.

Winemaker's Notes

Our robust Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon features ripe cherry aromas followed by licorice and sweet oak. The layered palate features bright red fruits with a bold framework of structured tannins. The depth of flavor is underscored by a long finish.

Pairings

Grilled meats served with hearty root vegetables or bold pasta dishes.

    "This eminently drinkable wine has some bite from its integrated tannins and moderate acid, but the main attraction is the bouncy red fruit. Paired with Greg’s steak, the spicy sweet melange of ripe cherry and licorice complements the allspice and cocoa elements in the rub. The char, the fat, the juicy, spicy, chewy meatiness of the dish would support a Bordeaux at ten times the price, but in this case Austerity is a good strategy– you could have it nine more times!"

    "This 100 percent Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles delivers powerful aromas of red berries, red licorice and hints of new oak and vanilla spice. Bright and juicy with sweet red raspberry and black cherry fruit. Good acidity on the finish, with just a hint of mocha."
