Medium ruby; medium intensity aromas; cherry and blackberry, slight herbaceous greenness, olive brine, opens up to some vanilla; dry, but with very ripe fruit that reads as sweetness, high acid, strong mid palate tannins, cooked fruit notes, stewed plum, slight stemminess at finish

4/3/20. An excellent cab. Great with steak. Rich and layered. Perfect tannins.

One of my favorite experiences in Paso and this great value Cab is now at the store! More lively than my general impression of Paso Cabernet.

Pretty smooth for a young cabernet yet a tangy acidic liveliness

One day I’ll find a cab that doesn’t taste too bitter, but tonight wasn’t it.

Super Jammie. Paired great with grilled New York strip and asparagus. Rich, smooth and full of dark stone fruit flavor.
