Festival Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast 1934

Winemaker's Notes:

In 2006 the winter rainy season started slowly with well-timed storms from January through May. Budbreak began a couple of weeks later than average, and the plentiful soil moisture promoted healthy vine growth. Spring and early summer were on the cool side of normal, followed by a very hot July, with many triple digit days and some all time heat records falling. This meant that even on the coast there were some rare summer days in the mid-nineties. When crafting this wine, our winemaking team selected luscious fruit from Monterey and Paso Robles Vineyards, two highly regarded wine growing regions. The majority of the wine was aged for over a year in French and American small oak barrels to add layers of complexity and to mellow the tannins. The winemaker blended in small amounts of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Sirah to create a wine boasting with rich aromas and flavors. This wine is rich and satisfying, with raspberry and plum aromas and flavors with hints of cedar, mint and cassis. A structured mid-palate carries the fruit into the long finish.

Blackberry and raspberry aromas with a hint of milk chocolate, fading quickly. Cedar and cassis fruit in the midpalate, with a bright lift. Bright finish. Not bad for $13, especially if you like your Cabs fruity.

Very nice for the price! Extra smooth, with a long finish. Good depth. I will buy this one again.
