Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon offers warm aromas of dusty black cherry and plum with hints of cocoa and anise. Dense, layered flavors of black currant and blackberry are accented by notes of vanilla, tobacco and spice. Plush tannins glide into a lengthy, luscious finish." -Winery

It is family-owned winery specializing in estate-grown wines from Margarita Vineyard, the southernmost vineyard in the Paso Robles appellation on California’s Central Coast. There, amid the rugged Santa Lucia mountain range just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in its vicinity, and thus the only vineyard to benefit from the extraordinary growing conditions of the area. Margarita Vineyard resides in the historic Santa Margarita Ranch, which was first planted to vines by Franciscan missionaries in 1774. Ancient Peaks and Margarita Vineyard are owned by three longtime local winegrowing families—the Filipponis, Rossis and Wittstroms—who are actively involved in the daily operations of the vineyard and winery. Ancient Peaks wines are crafted under the guidance of Mike Sinor, a local winemaking veteran and one of the highest-rated winemakers on the Central Coast. Read less

Very perfumed with plenty of toasty oak on the nose laid over spicy black fruit that shows a touch of a baked character like blackberry pie filling. Smooth and rather well focused in the mouth. Attractive and fresh blueberry and blackberry fruit flavors glide across the palate backed up by subtle green herb tones and spicy, cedary oak. The tannins are a bit angular today, adding mouth grab to the medium plus bodied wine that end with refreshing austerity on the moderately long fresh fruited finish. This is clear on the palate and bright, and while it's a bit simple it's also varietal correct and shows a fine judicious use of oak. 87pts
