Winemaker's Notes

Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Malbec, 2%Blaufrankisch, 1% Syrah

Distinctive for its bold, fruit-forward character, Wild Horse 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from well-established vineyards sites in Paso Robles. Individual vineyard lots were aged separately, and then blended to create this well balanced wine. Malbec, the largest blender, enhanced the anise spice while adding richness to the mid-palate. The Blaufrankisch, an Austrian varietal from Wild Horse Estate Vineyard adds a soft roundness to the palate while adding bright fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry. Syrah, the final blender, was added to smooth out aggressive tannins on the finish while enhancing the fresh fruit characteristics.

The result of this blending alchemy is a well structured Cabernet with rich aromas and flavors of blackberry, cocoa and clove, coupled with a rich mouth feel yielding smooth tannins. The vibrant acidity found in this wine makes a perfect match for a wide range of foods, including prime rib, rack of lamb, and aged cheeses.
