This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon shows complex aromas of cassis, blackberry, pencil shavings, and sage. The mid-palate is medium bodied with flavors of spicy cranberry, and pistachios finishing with balanced delicate tannins and refreshing acidity. Enjoy it with grilled New York steak, or sharp cheese.
The 2008 growing season brought erratic weather in the inland valleys of the Central Coast with extreme summer heat followed by an early frost in mid October. Fortunately, the grapes were harvested without problem and the year produced wines with great concentration and finesse.
