Notes from the Winemaker:
From one of the greatest vintages Paso Robles has seen comes this captivating and impressive Cabernet Sauvignon. The bouquet is a profusion of black cherry and Oregon blackberry aromas, laced with cigar box, desert sage and peppermint. A multitude of layers unfold revealing blueberry, cassis, leather, black plum and crushed stone with highlights of wild mushroom, bay leaf and white pepper. Voluptuous and voluminous on the palate, the formidable fruit is accentuated with earthy undertones. The marvelous mouthfeel with firm, mature tannins results in a weighty yet velvety texture that gently surrenders to an elegant, powerful finish.



Ratings & Reviews
94 Points & Cellar Selection - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Inky in the glass, this rich and structured bottling offers a plump black-currant aroma, along with pinches of pepper and tightly woven oak. The palate lands softly and then the tannins rise up, offering savory flavors of charred beef, dark chocolate and black cherry. Drink 2020–2036." - Matt Kettmann (3/1/2019)

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Moving to the 2016s, almost all of which have been bottled, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a larger production release that spent 19 months in 50% new French oak. It’s a big, rich, sexy wine that’s loaded with notions of smoked black fruits, tobacco, road tar, and wood smoke. With plenty of power, solid finesse and elegance, fine tannins, and beautiful acidity, it’s a terrific Cabernet Sauvignon that will keep for a decade." - Jeb Dunnuck (11/29/2018)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(50% new French oak) Opaque ruby. Smoke- and spice-accented dark fruit, rose pastille, vanilla and cola aromas, along with smoky oak and cola overtones. Palate-staining cherry, black currant and spicecake flavors are lifted and sharpened by a spine of juicy acidity. Gains flesh and weight with air and finishes appealingly sweet and very long, displaying persistent dark berry and spice notes and smooth, slow-mounting tannins." - Josh Raynolds (Sep 2018)

91-93+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Tasted from barrel, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve reveals lavish aromas of black plums, incense and asphalt, followed by a full-bodied, layered and richly tannic palate, with an abundance of ripe, fine-grained tannins and a deep, concentrated core of fruit. This has all the elements to show very well indeed from bottle." - William Kelley (31st May 2018)
