Fruity, oaky. We’ll see if it makes an acceptable sauce

This is the type of cab you find in restaurants without a wine list but a slew of wines by the glass. It's the kind of cab that costs $10 a glass but you think it's drinks for more than that so you think you got yourself a deal and never realize the restaurant made its money back on that glass and everything else is profit. This cab is bright and smells like oak and makes me think there is no oak aging at all, much like Axe body spray smells nice but you know it's all chemicals.

It's fine. I'm being too harsh, but it is a fine cab for cheap. Very drinkable and forgettable.

This is an interesting Cali Cab: the red fruit on the nose is potent maraschino cherry with a touch of pomegranate, and the cedar bite is more perfumey, like green pepper potpourri. Acid is nice and crisp, body isn't heavy, and though the tannins are grabby and present, it's not jammy and fruity on the palate, it's bracing and tart. Interesting for its differentness, and definitely a solid buy for ~$15.

Tasty, but over-extracted. Very pure fruit but not subtle.

Inky indigo, the wine has a beautiful nose of cassis and blueberry. Cedar, leather and pipe tobacco play large supporting roles. The fruit is as dark on the palate as it is on the nose. A sense of forest floor comes through as well, darkening things further. Just a shade of graphite shows up. The wine reminds me more of the Rhône than of Bordeaux.

Really great value cab from Paso. Full bodied, smooth, and opens up nicely.
