Wine Review: The Tasting Panel loved this good value gem from Eberle. It is a steal at $23. This wine beat out several other wines that cost close to twice its price. It is dark ruby colored and opens with a fragrant black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of mint and rosemary. On the palate, this wine is medium to full bodied, balanced and juicy. The flavor profile is a plum and mineral blend with notes of black tea, dark chocolate and oak. The finish is dry and its bold dusty tannins are sticky and last forever. The panel suggested pairing this great value Cab with a cowboy ribeye steak. Enjoy – KWGTP
Winemaker Notes: Eberle's "Vineyard Selection" Cabernet Sauvignon displays 100% varietal characteristics blended from several distinguished Paso Robles vineyards, including Eberle Estate. A perfect by the glass Cabernet to be enjoyed with or without food. Approachable and enjoyable in its youth, showing rich flavors of plum, black cherry, with a hint of cedar and friendly tannins. This Cab will complement to a variety of dishes including braised lamb shanks with rosemary, roasted duck or a juicy rib-eye steak with a dollop of blue cheese.
