Our 2016 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon is deep and inviting. The wine displays aromas of Black Cherry and dark plum resulting in a lovely hint of violet. Flavors of cherry cola and cocoa nib are rounded out by a note of pipe tobacco. Overall the wine features a firm tannin structured balanced by a smooth lingering finish.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a very savory and quite compelling Cabernet, starting with aromas of black pepper, tar, dried olive and yet also a bright fresh boysenberry kick. The palate is framed by lavish, silky tannins that envelop flavors of cassis, black cherry and baking spice, with continued layers of Sichuan peppercorn and plum arising into the finish.

Wine SpectatorRich and broad-shouldered, with ample minerality to the dried cherry and spiced cherry flavors. Lithe midpalate, with a savory push that extends into the firmly tannic finish. Drink now through 2022. 2,446 cases made.
