Eberle Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles Reserve 2002

Member Review by sacwiners:

We were given a glass of this as we were starting a wine cave tour and said we wouldn't buy it for the $65 price. After sipping as we went through the tour, we changed our minds and bought a bottle. A very nice Cab for those who might otherwise not prefer Cabs

In 1973, Gary Eberle began his career in the wine industry by heading his family’s Estrella River Winery (currently Meridian Vineyards in Paso Robles) and produced 500,000 cases a year at its facility. Eberle’s pioneering spirit didn’t stop there. In 1980, he co-founded the Paso Robles Appellation and in 1983, Gary opened the doors to his own Eberle Winery with the premiere of Eberle’s 1979 Cabernet Sauvignon. Today, Eberle handcrafts 25,000 cases of wine each year from surrounding Estate vineyards. And, after more than 25 years since the release of the Eberle label, the winery consistently remains one of the highest award-winning wineries in the United States. The Boar The German name "Eberle" translates to "small boar." At Eberle Winery, a bronze boar greets every guest who visits the Tasting Room. The statue is the 93rd replica of the original bronze Porcellino cast by Tacca in 1620. And today, the original can be found in the straw market in Florence, Italy. It is considered good luck to rub the boar's nose and toss a coin in the water below. All money collected at the Eberle boar fountain is donated to local children's charities. The Tasting Room & Caves The redwood building that houses the Winery and Tasting Room was built to be a natural extension of the vineyard and surrounding countryside. But in 1994, Eberle was seeking additional space for the red wine program and decided to go underground. Today, 16,000 square feet of underground caves located below the winery create the perfect place to age every bottle of wine we make. In addition, the 100-seat Wild Boar Room serves as a romantic and beautiful backdrop for our monthly Guest Chef Dinner Series and Private Events. Read less

Nine years old. Not a classic cab. Big fruit forward but not a fruit bomb. Tannins have mellowed to add subtle complexities given the 24 months on American Oak this wine was aged in. We would agree with the previous reviewer, "A very nice cab for those who might otherwise not prefer Cabs" Red fruit, cherry, sour cherry with slighter hints of raspberry, black berry; vanilla and light cocoa. Complex enough to work with food, but may be better as a standalone wine. In our opinion, it's at it's peak now.
