Paso Robles is one of California’s most pastoral domains. Its name roughly translates to “Passageway of Oaks,” and indeed, majestic trees mark the landscape. Amongst the rolling hills and native habitat lie manicured vineyards, where ideal soil exists for farming Cabernet. Dry, warm conditions are typical, yet evenings are chilled by a breeze from the Pacific just 18 miles to the west, allowing fruit to ripen into luxurious richness. At nearly 1,000 feet, soils are elevated sea beds where shell fossils are often found.
Fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon with aromas of dark fruit, fresh vanilla bean, and hints of coffee. On the palette, dark fruit flavors are balanced with savory notes black pepper, and a touch of tobacco.
