While the fruit of a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon seems elegant, I prefer the rambunctious nature of the Cabs of Paso Robles. This one lives up to that expectation. The blueberry is a little brighter, more playful, the earth is a little heavier and the spice a little, well, spicier than its cousins from further north. The oak on the nose is pretty and punchy, while the baking spice aromas make me think of cherry pie. The palate offers ripe blackberry and plum flavors with a good whack of oak and firm, yet supple, tannins. The finish is a fruit/earth mixture that plays on your taste buds a good long while after the sip.

2013 Vintage. Decent value, lot's of concentration, but lacks depth of character. Good value, though.

Thought this was appropriate today. Some folks will understand the irony. Similar tasting notes. A lot of black cherry fruit. Currant and clove follow with a smoky finish. Medium-to-full bodied. Rich, but fun. High QPR.
