2013 Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon [THIRSTY THANKSGIVING]
2013 Estate Merlot
The gorgeous appearance showcases the appeal of a classic claret, with scarlet highlights. Seeped plum, black cherry, cassis, cocoa powder, and lead pencil are evident on the nose. Bright, juicy acidity is the first to impress on the palate, with refined tannins, along with hints of truffle and game. Impressively long on the noble finish, with zesty notes of rosemary and black pepper.
From start to finish, this wine shows not only class and refinement but also rich and intense fruit still. A hidden gem with impeccable balance, presenting a rarely seen side of restraint from Paso Robles, famous for its intense reds and a similarly unpredictably austere side of Merlot and how seriously good it can be.
2013 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
It is the Cab that we love the best - and we’ve got the newest one, a fruit-driven gem that we know you’ll love.This Paso Cab looks approachable in the glass with a bright crimson hue around the outer edge. The nose is evocative of the terroir with a rich straw and dusty bramble aroma that smoothly segues into notes of strawberry, cherry, and rhubarb red fruit.
On the palate, the ripe fruit flavor comes to the fore with dulcet tones of plum compote, cherry pie, and fruitcake with notes of leather, tobacco, and dates. Its powerful fruit forward flavor is evidence of Paso Robles’ hot days with nice, restrained tannin making for a Zinfandel lover’s Cabernet.
