In Paso Robles Wine Country, CAB is king. Temperate days, cool nights and well-drained soil echo the growing conditions of Bordeaux, France, inspiring local winemakers to produce world class Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec across the region’s bucolic vineyard terrain in Paso Robles. Today, Cabernet Sauvignon — with its rich mouth feel, deep complexity and velvety finish — reigns supreme among Paso’s Bordeaux bounty. The varietal makes up almost half of all grapes grown across the 614,000-acre Paso Robles AVA (American Viticultural Area), of which 40,000 acres are in wine grape vines. Elegant, robust and age-worthy, award-winning Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon has garnered extensive acclaim across the region and around the world.

A smooth, supple palate shows layered flavors of blackberry, blueberry, and plum. Grainy tannins add depth and structure to a long, integrated finish
