Austin Cabernet Sauvignon Lot 19
True to Paso Robles’ signature style, this fruit forward Cabernet Sauvignon has enticing aromas of dark fruit, fresh vanilla bean and hints of coffee. On the palette, the dark brooding fruit flavors are balanced with savory notes of black pepper, baking spices along with a touch of tobacco to add warmth and dimension. Lovely notes of sweet oak, lively acidity & fine dusty tannins complete this wine, making it the perfect Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy daily.
We searched the Paso Robles AVA that tell the story of Paso, sourcing from reputable vineyards and growers located in some of our favorite soil sites that drive structure, tannin development and rich color. These vineyards are both well-established and newer plantings; a blend of traditional Paso style Cabernet and new, exciting clones that are proving to be the next generation of Paso. We sourced from four Paso Robles districts, each with a unique terroir and all with our desired ancient seabed, calcareous soils.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested and fermented individually by vineyard lots and then barreled into a combination of French and American oak barrels, 10% of which are new. Wines were matured in oak for an average of 20 months and racked twice during barrel-aging before an initial blend was assembled in September of 2020. Following another 4 months in 15% new French Oak, the blend was fi nalized in December 2020 and was racked a fi nal time before a gentle cross-fl ow fi ltration and bottling in late January 2021.
