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
