Harvey & Harriet Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Born from the roots of My Favorite Neigbor, you can taste the pedigree from beginning to end in this second label. Almost bombastic as it explodes on the palate, but just stops short. The components of this blend are not quite fully integrated - something sharpish is protruding, which could be the petit verdot? Nothing that a year or two in the bottle wouldn’t sort out. Huge concentration of dark fruits, are laced with sweetness and loamy soil. Full-throttle tannins let you know that this wine isn’t going anywhere for a good few years. — 6 days ago

Had one of these recently and had exactly the same impression. I think it’s a winner after a little nap.

Booker Vineyard

My Favorite Neighbor Cabernet Sauvignon

I enjoyed this wine as a celebration for acceptance into a program. It was a great way to celebrate with my wife over some lebanese food. I have to say after drinking a lot of other Californian cabs that this wine differs. The wine definitely opens up with decanting and letting it breathe for about thirty minutes. It is smooth and light with minimal initial fruit flavors and good legs with no lingering aftertaste. Its a delicious change from heavier cabs at this price point of 65 to 90 dollars. I definitely think it grows on you as you drink it but initially it does not have the immediate body that other wines like duckhorn or venge vineyards has. If you're in the mood for something a little lighter but still satisfying I would recommend. Cheers. — a month ago

Lots of forest floor and mushroom on the nose. Getting some sweet rhubarb and plum. First time with what was described as a cousin to Malbec - Jurancon Noir. Enjoyed this rare find. Hope to discover more! — 7 days ago
