Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles 2009
This wine in simply awsome. Let it decant for a good 20 mins before drinking... it opens up nicely. I won't type too much... it's simple, great tasting and goes for ny occassion... sure crowd pleaser,,, or a pleaser for one! :)
Opens with a ton of eucalyptus on the nose and palate, mixed with menthol. A bit off-putting. After 45 minutes, the standard cab fruit shows up: dark fruit, black cherry, bit of cola. Tannins and acidity are a bit out of balance.
Very good - full body
External Reviews for Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles
Deep garnet with crimson hues. Effusive black cherry, Dutch chocolate and currant complement the spicy, peppery notes and hints of toasted sweet oak. Opulent dark fruit, soft velvety tannins, followed with a long, rich finish.
At Estancia, long-term contracts, and over 2000 acres of vineyard lands ensure that they have direct control over how grapes are farmed and managed. This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from their Keyes Canyon Ranches in Paso Robles. Growing conditions in Paso Robles are extreme—temperature swings are greater than in any other California appellation. The rugged landscape, unique microclimate and infertile soils at Keyes Canyon Vineyard produce Bordeaux varietals with low yields, small clusters, tiny berries and high skin-to-juice ratios for concentrated wines with intense varietal character. Aged 14 months in American oak and French oak, 25% new, this Cab shows intensity and style that go way beyond its modest price tag.
