Caparone Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles French Camp Vineyard 2004
Our cabernet comes from the well-known Bien Nacido Vineyard, located in Sisquoc, in the Santa Maria Valley. Our cab from this vineyard is classic cool-climate cabernet - dark, intense, with a slight smokiness that is unique to Bien Nacido. The grapes were grown in sandy soil next to the Sisquoc River. This wine is capable of aging for many years - Dave's 1974 cabernet, from the same valley, is still aging gracefully today. We have used this particular block since 1984, and the wines from it have demonstrated great longevity and consistent quality. We avoid excessive oak and alcohol; our cabernet is an unembellished expression of this exceptional vineyard.
Very earthy, dark plum scent. Taste lingers. Amazing for the price
Single vineyard- "French Camp" in Paso Robles. The wines are picked very ripe, fairly late into the season. Unfined and unfiltered. Black and green olive profile- Smells wild, brambly with a slight hint of barnyard (like an aged Rioja). Very exciting style! Black cherry front with a very light touch; silky flavors of anise-seed, red licorice, cedar, vanilla on the finish- yet the wine remains very light and finishes cleanly at the end like a pinot noir. A pretty wine that anyone who likes to experiment with wine will appreciate!
