This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is always enjoyable. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes and wood, licorice, vanilla and peppercorn.

Fruit forward and spicy.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Nice, and easy drinking with mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Nice length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

I've had multiple vintages of this Cabernet, and this 2017 vintage seems to be a little better.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$22

Very happy to try the new vintage. 17 doesn’t disappoint, 90 points out the gate with fruit and vanilla and tannins nicely balanced. I think some age will greatly help, but as always this wine shines, and it’s a great value too.

This is turning out to be a great vintage for Justin. Let it open up a little bit and it’s extraordinary for the price point. Coming out of a half bottle, because the winery hasn’t released the 750’s yet. Shows wonderful complex fruit with ample tannic structure. Not much acidity going on, but will be a great vintage to drink now. Haven’t seen as good as a vintage as the 2017, since the 2013 vintage.

Subtle dark berry and spice notes. Mineral stands out.

Aroma has notes of soy sauce, currant, and blackberries. Medium light body with a moderate finish. Fruity beginning without a strong bias towards a specific fruit. Sweet start with a slightly bitter finish with low acidity. Very well balanced.

Case alert. Very fruit forward. Finish isn’t as strong as id like but this is definitely a crowd pleaser.

Solid cab as always, this vintage was a little more fruit forward then I last remembered. Tons of blackcurrant.
