Ancient Peaks Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Member Review by jtryka:

Today I tried a nice bottle of 2007 Anceint Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. Now normally, I really like the Zins from Paso Robles, and seldom have I tried the Cabs, but this one was very nice. It was quite fruity, with a nose of blackberry, cherry and black currant, and a taste that reminded me of some of the finer cabs from Napa Valley. The taste was refined, with hints of berry, leather and tobacco, and a long, smooth finish. Overall, a very pleasant wine, particularly given the price at just $14. I had this one tonight with a halibut steak (it's amazing how little halibut resembles fish!), baked potato and some fresh steamed asparagus. Such a wonderful meal, and a wine that I continue to enjoy even after the meal. Overall, I would rate this one a solid 3.5, it's not spectacular, but for the price it's a nice everyday wine.

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
