Winemaker Notes

Pure Paso Robles, this rich yet smooth Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with elegant aromas of blackberry, blueberry, pepper, and cassis which lead to flavors of dark red fruits with hints of cedar spice, cocoa powder and caramelized oak. These persistent flavors create a long lingering finish. While very accessible now, this wine will continue to evolve nicely for years to come.

TP 90
Tasting Panel
With an abundance of blue and black fruit to sweeten, the chalky tannins and earth "soil" play up the savory and mineral tones of this rustic red from the Niven Family of California's Central Coast. This wine over-delivers with serious big oak-caramel and black cherry coming in from the mid-palate to finish.
WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Smashed blueberries, black gravel, caramel and a touch of oak smoke show on the nose of this stylishly labeled, widely available bottling from the Niven family. Juicy blackberry fruit leads the palate, bolstered by roasted coffee and shaved-chocolate flavors and rounded out by chalky tannins and strong acidic energy. Editors' Choice.

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Ripe fruit and lots of wood are elements often found in many of the best red wines from Paso Robles, and indeed, the 2013 True Myth fulfills the role handsomely. This wine boasts of beautifully-ripened black fruit and is accented nicely with handsome oak. Serve it a grilled ribeye and enjoy the wine's synergy with the beef.

True Myth, Paso Robles, Central Coast, California
Image of winery

A specialty appellation winery, True Myth produces wines made of varietals from specific regions along California’s Central Coast. We grow the fruit for our brightly tropical Chardonnay in the Edna Valley, the coolest wine region in the state, and our gutsy bold Cabernet Sauvignon is from the distinctively warmer Paso Robles region only about 30 miles to the north. Both wines are rich and delicious, each speaking to the diversity of San Luis Obispo County.

Owned by the Niven family; pioneers of the Edna Valley AVA, farmers of the oldest continually harvested vines in the region, and previous owners of a Paso Robles Cab ranch. We have been a part of San Luis Obispo County’s farming history for more than four decades.

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.
