Winemaker Notes

Every good story needs a hero, a villain... and a monster. This savage beast hails from Paso Robles (California’s real wine county). Clocking in at 15% abv, rugged Paso possesses the largest diurnal temperature difference of all California wine-growing regions. Days can reach over 100 degrees and nights can be in the low 30s. Extreme heat forges fruit with dark, bold, monstrously brooding flavors and freezing nights retain a juicy, racing acidity. Slay It.

Blend: 76% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petite Verdot, 10% Petite Sirah

Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: The Big Red Monster Slay It Cabernet Sauvignon Lot: One is rambunctious and persistent. TASTING NOTES: This wine displays dramatic black fruit and pencil lead aromas and flavors. Pair it with a thick and rare slice of prime rib. (Tasted: June 7, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This widely available bottling, which includes small amounts of Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, is sure to please anyone seeking a powerful red wine. Clean lines of black currant, crushed slate, light cocoa, char and oregano hit the nose, while the palate amplifies that herbal edge, with rich milk-chocolate and black-fruit flavors. A solid grip adds to the complexity.

As Paso Robles, California has soared in number of wineries and gained in popularity, Cabernet Sauvignon has firmly taken root as the region’s number one varietal. Alone, it accounts for just over 40% of plantings and is grown throughout both the western and eastern sides of the appellation. Though viticulture here dates back to the 18th century, Cabernet Sauvignon didn’t emerge as a significant grape here until the 1970’s. But since then it has definitely made up for lost time.

Legendary winemaker and consultant Andre Tchelistcheff first recognized Paso’s potential with Cabernet Sauvignon in the early 1960’s. The calcareous soil and dramatic diurnal temperature changes of Paso’s westside particularly intrigued him. Today modern winemaking techniques and focused experimentation with various clones, rootstocks and vineyard strategies optimize the region's ideal combination of soil and climate to deliver the best fruit possible.

The results are evident in the glass. Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon can be mesmerizing, with rich aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, black cherry, graphite, toasty oak, vanilla and spice. The structure, balance and unbridled opulence of these wines impress from first sip to last. Not surprisingly, Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignons have steadily grown in reputation, not just in the U.S., but around the world.
