External Reviews for Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon

Appearance: Deep crimson Aroma: Intense dark cherry, blackberry, chocolate, and black currant Flavor: Generous mid-palate silky tannins; hints of blackberry and chocolate with a nice lingering finish VINEYARDS: We’re convinced that in the world’s best wines can be found the true essence of the place from which they came. We grew the fruit for this Cabernet Sauvignon in our Keyes Canyon Vineyard in Paso Robles. Hot days and cool nights, thin soils, and stressed vines—these are the hallmarks of Keyes Canyon. Vines struggle to produce fruit here, resulting in tiny clusters with high skin-to-juice ratios, which create deeply concentrated wines with intense flavors. This southwest benchland vineyard, planted at 450 feet in elevation, boasts a half-dozen soil types, including sandy clay loam. It has proven to be a perfect vineyard for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. - Winery Varietal Composition: 81% Cabernet Sauvignon 10% Petite Sirah 3% Zinfandel 3% Syrah 3% Petit Verdot Aging: 14 months in new oak barrels; 35% new Total Acidity: 6.3 g/L pH: 3.63 Alcohol: 13.5%
