The fruit for our 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was selected from two of our estate vineyards in Paso Robles – Huerhuero and Creston Valley. Huerhuero Vineyard, in the hilly terrain between the El Pomar and Geneseo Districts, benefits from the moderating Pacific breezes that blow through the Templeton Gap in the afternoon as well as its limiting calcareous subsoils. Creston Valley Vineyard has picture perfect high terrain, southern exposure and shallow soils with noticeable granulated limestone. Both of these vineyards produce Cabernet Sauvignon with an overall balance of expressive flavors and structure.
Garnet in color with a very fragrant nose. Aromas of cassis, blueberry, cedar and anise jump out at first and are then followed with hints of black olives and juniper berry. The palate is full-bodied with flavors of cassis, blueberry and notes of licorice. The tannins are big and chewy. -Winemaker’s Notes
Wine Enthusiast (WE)
This bottling exhibits the richness that’s made Paso Robles famous, yet at a price point that’s great for frequent indulgence. Inky in the glass, the bottling’s lush nose offers concentrated black cherry, caramel, cocoa and coffee. It’s soft and smooth on the palate, where the black-cherry compote flavors are lifted by star anise and clove.

Youthful violet. Smoke-tinged cassis, cherry and licorice aromas show good clarity and pick up peppery spice, vanilla and pipe tobacco nuances with aeration. Sweet and expansive on the palate, offering warm dark berry and licorice flavors and a suggestion of mocha. Supple and broad on the youthfully tannic finish, which features a hint of vanilla and repeating smokiness.
