If I look back in my relationship with Paso, I see first and foremost Cabernet Sauvignon, in particular the Estate wines that Eberle produced in the early 1990s. They were pretty much all one could want from California Cabernet at their price. Rich ripe fruit was married to creamy spicy oak in a round, lush but not flabby style.
Of course, Zinfandel and even Barbera from Paso Robles impressed me, but the truth is that Eberle, the 1994 in particular, is one of the wines that taught me to stop over paying for wine! So how are things going with Paso Cabernet today? Let's take a look and see what the wines from seven popular producers have to say.
