Wine Review: I enjoyed this all around pleasing inky colored full bodied Cabernet Sauvignon. It started with a very appealing fruity, musty black cherry bouquet which included some light cedar, black pepper and milk chocolate. This inviting Cab continued to impress on the palate with slightly dry black cherry flavors that were fruity. I also detected hints of blueberries, dark chocolate and herbal notes. An engaging wine with a dry, balanced tannins that lead to an extended finish. This Cab should easily cellar for quite a few more years. I would pair this Cab from Paso Robles with an herb encrusted rack of lamb. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: Color: Garnet Aroma: Dried cherries and cassis with hints of anise liqueur and fine tobacco Taste: Full-bodied with cherries and hints of licorice; juicy, sweet and textured tannins linger into the finish

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
