Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Margarita Vineyard 2009
2009 Broadside "Margarita Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon is our fourth release for this wine. It's made without the use of yeasts, bacteria, or acid during it's fermentation and aging. They do this in order to craft natural wine. Aged in 100% French oak, with only 2% of which is new. Efforts focus on the vineyard, letting the natural expression of the grape variety shine through. Petite Verdot sourced exclusively from the Margarita Vineyard from vines planted in 1999. This location results in perfect conditions for growing cabernet Sauvignon with warm days and cool nights. *The resulting wine has an abundant intensity of fruit, but still maintains balance and freshness*. The wine was produced and bottled by Broadside a few miles east of the vineyard in the town of Creston.
On the nose, a well balanced wine with with tones of dark red cherries, cassis, oak, and dark red fruit. One the palate, full bodied with a nice plush feel and tones of dark red cherries and dark red fruit. The wine has a nice tannic core that supports the structure. Overall, this is a really nice cab, well balanced wonderful depth.
This is silky, floral, slam dunk Cabernet grown in the cool, southern part of Paso Robles in California's Central Coast. Made with organically grown grapes and fermented with native yeasts, this is supremely fresh and super pretty Cab that shows off the softer, sexier, more feminine side of this typically brawny variety. Perfectly ripe with clean notes of cassis, blackberry, and flowers, and not a touch oaky.

Incredible value for the money...deep purple wine with a richness normally seen in $35+ dollar bottles. Expected average for the price and greatly exceeded my expectations.
