TASTING True to Paso Robles’ signature style, this fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon has enticing aromas of dark fruit, fresh vanilla bean and hints of coffee. On the palette, the dark brooding fruit ﬂavors are balanced with savory notes of black pepper, baking spices along with a touch of tobacco to add warmth and dimension. Lovely notes of sweet oak, lively acidity & ﬁne dusty tannins complete this wine making it the perfect Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy daily.

MAKER'S NOTES: Our Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested and fermented individually by vineyard lots and then barreled into a combination of French and American oak barrels, 10% of which are new. Wines were matured in oak for an average of 20 months and racked twice during barrel-aging before an initial blend was assembled in September of 2020. Following another 4 months in 15% new French Oak, the blend was ﬁnalized in December 2020 and was racked a ﬁnal time before a gentle cross-ﬂow ﬁltration and bottling in late January 202
