Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon shows great depth and structure. The warm weather in June 2013 intensified color and tannin in grapes, resulting in purple hues and a rich texture of velvety tannin in the finish. There are aromas of cherry, blackberry, anise, cocoa and wood smoke, which continue on the palate with the flavor of black cherry.

Wine Enthusiast
Roasted beef and pork aromas are interspersed with cherry, blackberry, black currant, dried herbs and just enough cooked bell pepper to know it's a Cab. The palate is all about meaty fun, like cherry-crusted tenderloin topped with herbed béarnaise sauce, finishing on rustic elderberry, cigar and menthol flavors. Editor's Choice

Falcone, Paso Robles, Central Coast, California
Image of winery
The Falcone family focuses on producing high-quality Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah for various reasons. Perhaps the most important one is that our estate vineyard is ideal for growing Bordeaux and Rhône varietals. Cabernet Sauvignon is such a noble varietal that we could not pass up an opportunity to create a stellar Cabernet Sauvignon from the Central Coast. And our Mia’s Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is just that. We select it from special barrels of our estate fruit and age it for an additional 15 months for optimal flavor integration. With Syrah, we simply love the potential of this varietal and have tried to create a Syrah that is elegant, layered and mysterious, with aromatics that satisfy any drinker with some degree of patience and adventure. In addition to these primary varietals, we also produce a Chardonnay from Sierra Madre Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley as well as a limited-production, non-vintage blend called Annaté.

Falcone Family Vineyards wines are the result of winemaking careers, which led to the planting of this small estate vineyard in Paso Robles. Our farming methods combine with our winemaking techniques to produce distinctive wines that reflect the soils and climate of this vineyard. We continually reach for the highest level of quality.

Paso Robles

View all wine

Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of supple, powerful, fruit-driven wines wines. But with eleven smaller sub-AVAs, there is actually quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

Just east over the Santa Lucia Mountains from the chilly Pacific Ocean, lie the coolest in the region: Adelaida, Templeton Gap and (Paso Robles) Willow Creek Districts, as well as York Mountain AVA and Santa Margarita Ranch. These all experience more ocean fog, wind and precipitation compared to the rest of the Paso sub-appellations. The San Miguel, (Paso Robles) Estrella, (Paso Robles) Geneso, (Paso Robles) Highlands, El Pomar and Creston Districts, along with San Juan Creek, are the hotter, more western appellations of the greater Paso Robles AVA.

This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, Syrah, Grenache and Rhône blends, both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruit-driven, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

Cabernet Sauvignon

View all wine

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines.

In the Glass

High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

Perfect Pairings

Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

Sommelier Secrets

Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
