Estancia Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
This wine is a nice one to spruce up any evening. I think it's a little more expensive than what I'd consider table wine, and so I normally like to think of it as a treat. As for flavor? well the review is pretty accurate, it's certainly got that wonderful hint of oak that I love in a good Cabernet, and it strays from being too fruity or acidic. Since it lacks sweetness it is easier to sip and relax with.
Really enjoyed this wine. I am not an expert or a wine connoisseur by any means so read this review with that in mind. I look for something that is easy to drink--smooth and not too strong. I prefer a cab and this wine has now become my favorite.

External Reviews for Estancia Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon
Exhibits a rich intensity and dark fruit character framed by sweet oak and hints of spice.
A pleasantly stylish wine (and a solid value, too), with black currant, plum and blackberry flavors that dance with salty mineral and cedary oak notes. Cocoa and mocha tones slide through a harmonious finish. Drink now through 2008.
Black currant and herb notes weave together with plenty of toasty oak and modest tannin. Drink now through 2004.
This wine's warm plum, black currant and vanilla flavors are round and easy to like. Best from 2004 through 2006.
Estancia Cabernet Sauvignon displays dense black currant, lush chocolate, and dark cherry fruit flavors followed by a long, supple finish.
Exhibiting classic cabernet sauvignon characteristics, Estancia's 2001 vintage is full-bodied with a firm structure. Rich and strong, presenting ripe cherry flavors and ending in a clean finish.
Smooth and harmonious, with ripe, supple plum and blackberry flavors, supported by round, fleshy tannins. Drink now through 2008.
