Winemaker Notes

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon presents vivid varietal aromas of luscious black fruits with notes of cedar, pencil shaving and black olive. A deep, layered palate unfolds with heady flavors of black currant, blackberry and blueberry with suggestions of cherry, mint, vanilla, and toasted oak. Plump tannins and balanced acidity add length and structure to a richly integrated finish.

Enjoy the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon with richly textured dishes, including grilled pork chops, veal roast with mushrooms, stuffed eggplant, filet mignon with black olive sauce and Cabernet-braised short ribs.

Blend: Cabernet Sauvignon 79%, Merlot 8%, Petite Sirah 8%, Petit Verdot 3%, Cabernet Franc 2%

Wine Enthusiast
A deep blackberry aroma meets with licorice and mushrooms on the fresh and savor nose. The palate's black currant and blueberry core is partnered harmoniously with notes of chipped wood and toasted herbs as well as jubilant acidity. Editors' Choice.

Tasting Panel
The winery’s flagship grape, Cabernet Sauvignon, also leads the charge for the region itself as a world-class producer of Bordeaux varieties. This one is ripe and balanced, with intuitive acidity unlike that found in any of Paso’s other sub-AVAs. Cedar delivers subtle hints of cocoa and spice while dark cherry and cherry pith give way to a channel of calcareous minerality, black olive, and beetroot. Aged 20 months in French and American oak.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon shows up with plenty of fruit and persistence on the palate and in the finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine offers ripe red and black fruit aromas and flavors, with an added accent of oak. Pair it with grilled cheeseburgers. (Tasted: August 25, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Ancient Peaks Winery Video

We are a family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast.

Just look at a map of Paso Robles wineries and at the very southern tip you will find our Vineyard. Here, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774.

Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast.

Ancient Peaks implements numerous sustainable viticultural practices to ensure natural quality in their wines while protecting the rich, native environment surrounding the Margarita Vineyard. Their practices have earned SIP (Sustainability in Practice) Certification for Margarita Vineyard, the leading standard for viticultural sustainability.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
