Promise Seeker Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Member Review by puhnner:

These are the tasting notes from Lot 18- Tasting Notes From the winery: "Ruby in color, with aromas of black cherry, plum and violet. Ripe flavors of blackberries and raspberries combine, and hints of savory spice and thin mint coat the palate. The tannins are well integrated with the fruit and create a saturated, balanced and long finish." ha, ha, overall, I found this one not there, as if opening the Book of Cabernet, 1/2 of the pages were missing. Just goes to show, it is not the wine, it is my undeveloped palate instead. I suppose it was pleasent enough, if I just had to have a glass of wine, though given the the choice to avoide disappointment, perhaps a drink from the garden hose would be better.

Our basic winemaking philosophy is to work with great grape growers to develop the best fruit in the vineyard. We pick the grapes at optimal ripeness and gently process the fruit. We are very experimental with yeast strains and use different cultures for each variety. Our whites are barrel fermented slowly and aged Sur Lies in small French Oak barrels. With our reds, skin contact is optimized by the use of small open top fermentors, hand punch downs and extended maceration before pressing. Our belief in the use of older French Oak barrels allows the varietal fruit of our wines to be expressed. We are committed to experimenting and learning new winemaking methods while preserving an old world approach. Read less
