9.0

Perfect wine for a party with a halloween theme.

Dark garnet red core with a little bricking on the edges. A bit of acetone on the nose and a touch toasty with smoked berries. Medium plus tannins (6.5/10) and medium bodied. A little jammy on the palate but minimal with some layered dark berries, twigs, spices, bark and gravel. Dry medium plus to long finish. Drink till 2023.

Made up of 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot. Aged for 20 months in 40% new French oak, and then an additional 6 months in the bottle prior to release. Only 314 cases produced.|Sample provided by Winery, retail price is $85.00.

Central Coast Handcrafted Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This wine was wonderful. It started out with a tinny nose. But after opening up it was full, lush and dry. I enjoyed every drop. — 9 days ago

Hilltop Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

At first sip I noticed it’s dryness and tannins, then cherry, raspberry, cinnamon; by the end it’s minerality and earthiness came out along with the dry tannins again — 2 days ago

Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

It's time for my Friday's Cabernet fix. This week it's a nice one from Paso Robles.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Nice fruity nose with black currants, blackberries, cherries, vanilla, cedar, leather, licorice, earth and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, sweet cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, chocolates, tobacco, beef jerky, spices, coffee, herbs and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is drinking very nicely now. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with foods like BBQ Meats. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, and then it's just delicious.

Grapes are hand picked and aged for 18 months in oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Drinking the 2010 in 2017. Deep dark color. Thick long lasting legs. Bouquet rich with oak and dark fruit. Big flavor with a jammy sweet finish. Blackberry, cassis, chocolate and oak with very low tannins. Wonderful wine! — 4 days ago

Big Kahuna Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

The taste of this wine reminds me of how mother would force me to introduce myself to perfectly strange kids and make me play with them. Looking back on it now I thank her for the memories, as some became life long friends I still hold dear to this day. I just wish she would have also enforced this effort in socialization during my own childhood.
Approaching this wine was at first awkward and off-putting, whether the label or the AVA, or maybe the person I encountered the wine through...but I was immediately intrigued and it did indeed make for some mighty fine sipping after all.

Destiny Vineyards 'Mt. Christo Block' 'Cab-Ovation' Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Just started drinking a glass from the 2007 vint and it is amazing! Purchased at a fundraiser not knowing this vineyard and was very pleasantly surprised by how bold yet smooth and also slightly complex it is. Thought we would need to let it breathe longer but it was delicious almost immediately. Highly recommend! — 5 days ago
