Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Margarita Vineyard 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon offers a complex bouquet of blackberry, leather, clove and roast coffee. Juicy flavors of plum, cassis and cocoa unfold with accents of mint. A smoothly integrated texture finishes with fine-grained tannins that will reward careful cellaring.

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 solid Cab. A bit young and tight out of the gate, but after a couple of hours in the decanter it opened up very nicely. Very well balanced, with a nice nose and tannins. Had this with a nice grilled fillet and it was outstanding.
