Winemaker Notes

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon shows great depth and structure with purple hues and a rich texture of velvety tannin. There are aromas of dust, blackberry, anise, cocoa and wood smoke which continue on the palate with the lingering flavor of black cherry.

Folcone's vines were farmed meticulously maintaining the proper amount of clusters for each individual shoot. This technique produces a very intense wine that captures the flavors of our site.

Vinous
Brilliant violet. Mineral-laced dark berry, cherry and licorice scents are complemented by hints of cola, cedary oak and candied flowers. Fleshy and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black currant, cherry-vanilla and mocha flavors underscored by a vein of smoky minerality. Displays very good depth, finishing with strong, dark-fruit-driven persistence and smooth, harmonious tannins.

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, fruity, and powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

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, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, 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 is sometimes referred to as the “king” of red grapes. It can be somewhat unapproachable early in its youth but has the potential to age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more at its best. Small berries and tough skins provide its trademark firm tannic grip, while high acidity helps to keep the wine fresh for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region (and in St-Emillion and Pomerol, where it plays a supporting role to Merlot). The top Médoc producers use Cabernet Sauvignon for their wine’s backbone, blending it with Merlot and smaller amounts of Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot. On its own, Cabernet Sauvignon has enjoyed great success throughout the world, particularly in the Napa Valley, and is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious 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's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California 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 revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
