This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the Central Coast's Paso Robles AVA, which has been enjoying a well-deserved explosion in popularity. Located near the Pacific Ocean, Paso Robles boasts the largest diurnal range of any wine region in CA. This swing between daytime and nighttime temperatures - up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit! - is due to cool marine air flowing east through the Templeton Gap and south along the Salinas River from the Monterey Bay. The result is Cabernet Sauvignon with rich fruit, full bodies, and silky tannins, but with a firm acid backbone.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The wine shows notes of black cherry, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavors of blackberry and sweet spice emerge on the palate, bolstered by a firm acidity, velvety tannin's, and a long finish.
Production Notes
Hand-picked at the peak of flavor development, the grapes are crushed and cold-soaked for 24 hours. The cap is punched down three times daily to maximize flavor extraction during fermentation and maceration, which lasts 10 to 15 days. The wine is aged in French oak, 40% new, for 16 to 18 months.
Winemaker Notes
"The quality of the 2015 vintage for California statewide is excellent," declared Robert Koch, President and CEO of The Wine Institute. This is especially true in Paso Robles, where the ongoing drought resulted in low yields, but concentrated fruit of exceptional quality. Rain in July sustained the vines through the summer, while cool summer weather contributed to wines that are big in both flavor and structure.
