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
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.

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
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. — 6 days ago
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
