Winemaker's Notes:

Eberle's Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon displays 100% varietal characteristics blended from several distinguished Paso Robles vineyards, including Eberle Estate. Approachable and enjoyable in its youth, showing flavors of plum, bing cherry, blackberry with a hint of cedar and moderate tannins.

The rich dark fruit flavors and moderate tannins found in the 2010 Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon make it a complement to a variety of favorite dishes including braised lamb shanks with rosemary, roasted duck or a juicy rib-eye steak with a dollop of blue cheese. The Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is so approachable you can simply enjoy it by the glass as well.

My Notes:

About Eberle Winery:

Gary Eberle has been producing wines since 1973 and is considered a "founder father" of the Paso Robles appellation. Eberle's desire to produce small-production premium wines led him to establish his own winery and in the spring of 1984, the Eberle Winery opened its doors to the public, selling a 1979 Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon. Along with his passion for Cabernet Sauvignon, Eberle produced one of the first 100% varietal Syrahs in California and has taken advantage of the region's Zinfandel plantings. Though still a boutique-sized winery, Eberle's portfolio includes Chardonnay, Muscat Canelli, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sryah and Zinfandel. All of the wines are vineyards designated in an effort to truly express the regional terrior and personality of the vineyards in the Paso Robles appellation.

In 1994, Eberle was seeking additional space for the red wine program and decided to go underground, where today 16,000 square feet of underground caves wind themselves below the winery.
