Wine Enthusiast Review
Dense in the glass, this top-tier Cabernet Sauvignon includes small additions of Saint-Macaire, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Elegant layers of black currant, black cherry, milk chocolate and cappuccino show on the nose. An expertly chiseled structure is immediately apparent on the palate, where rich and deep yet balanced flavors of black-cherry cream and mocha latte prove luxurious.
Tasting Panel Review
The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this rich and seductive red were sourced from Beck Vineyard, located in the Creston District at an elevation of 1,700 feet; small percentages of Cabernet Franc, Saint-Macaire, Petit Verdot, and Malbec were blended in. A nosing of cinnamon, wild berries, and heather leads to a sumptuous and concentrated palate of coffee-laden blackberry and notable phenolic maturity.
Trademark Paso Robles Cabernet flavors and structure: rich blackberry / black cherry / plum with notes of olive, charcoal, herbs, and spice. Silky, medium-weight tannins. Long spice box finish of vanillin-oak and creme brulee.
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Saint Macaire, 4% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec
