Deep garnet in color, this cabernet sauvignon has vibrant aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, balanced with earthy pepper and eucalyptus. The mid-palate is full bodied and rich with flavors of dark fruit and dried herbs that finish slightly toasty with lean tannins. Enjoy this wine with grilled sirloin steak, and a wild mushroom reduction sauce.
Wine Profile
Ratings
90 Points. Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar. 80% cabernet sauvignon, 14% petit verdot, 4% malbec and 2% merlot; aged in a 50/50 combination of French and American oak, 30% of it new):  Inky ruby.  A fragrant bouquet displays scents of ripe cherry and blackberry, with an exotic lavender note in the background.  Silky and open-knit, offering sweet dark fruit flavors braced by juicy acidity.  The finish, shaped by smooth and fully integrated tannins, repeats the floral note.  Delicious right now, but this wine has the structure to age positively for at least a few more years.
Vineyard Notes
The 2011 year was wetter than average and spring frost affected many vineyards in the Paso Robles area. Yields were reduced by nearly 30%. One of the coolest summers on record resulted in long hang time and grapes with high natural acidity. The resulting wines balance refreshing acidity with concentrated flavors due to the low yields.
Winemaker Notes
80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, and 2% Merlot grapes

There were 5 of us taste testing and all 5 of us agreed this was the best Cab that night. Full bodied and lovely. Will continue to buy.
