Rather intense and slightly hot on the nose with aromas of oak, roasted herbs, dried plum, dried cherry and coffee. Soft, slightly opaque, and low in the mouth, this creeps over the palate blanketing it with layers of spicy oak, roasted herbs, black cherries and something vaguely resembling dried apricots. The tannins build on the back end and turn slightly aggressive on the finish which has a tactile, extracted feel to it and lingering alcoholic heat accompanying the jammy black cherry fruit. A bit monolithic and extracted for my tastes, but this will be immensely appealing to those who enjoy more powerful wines. 87pts

Sandy soil tone with fine herbal elements. A bit of burnt rubber and some dried citrus peel notes. This does smell a bit alcoholic though it has a nice black cherry jam note on the nose. Lots of fruit up front with red cherry, red currant and dried strawberry fruit. Some nice mineral notes offer contrast and cut on the palate of this rather large scaled wine. This leans towards being a bit sweet and jammy though it has enough tannin and minerality to cut through the fruit particularly on the finish, which shows some dusty mineral notes, slightly drying tannins and a touch of heat 91pts

If you want a good bang for your buck, liberty school cab is it. It definitely tastes like a much higher priced wine. I buy this by the case

wonderfully complex, yet unified flavor. currant, pepper, oak, chocolate. balanced throughout, long on the tongue, fabulous finish. from the moment it's opened to the last drop it retains its tone and pitch. wow.

A wine with soft and silky tannins and very pretty fruit with delicate milk chocolate and currants. Full body, with fine tannins. Made mostly from Cabernet Sauvignon. Better in 2012

You get a lot of pleasure from this affordable Cab. Itandrsquo;s dry, moderate in alcohol which gives it a light mouthfeel, and quite pleasant in classic flavors of blackberries, currants and herbs, touched with smoky oak. Elegantly constructed, itandrsquo;s one of the best Cabernets of the vintage at this price.

This wine admirably represents the place where it was grown, displaying the gentle texture often associated with Paso Robles cabernet. The fruit is soft and plummy, trimmed by a savory dried herb character and bittersweet tannins. Its measured richness would play well with pork chops off the grill.

1996 was the first release of Treana. The Hope Family created this winery to produce this special blend of Rhone and California varietals. Since its inception it has been a major success, displaying the richness and character of these grapes and how well the flavors meld together. This latest release is all from their vineyards in Paso Robles and blends 70% Cabernet Sauvignon with 30% Syrah. The varietals were aged separately in French oak barrels half of which were new for 9 months. After the blend was made the wine aged an additional 5 months in oak and is bottled unfiltered. The bold intensity is what you expect but what's unexpected is the supple, mouth-filling ripeness of this 2009. 90+ scores came from both James Suckling and Steve Tanzer who said "Deep ruby. Intense aromas of cherry-cola, woodsmoke and dried flowers, accented by peppery spice. Juicy and focused, with very good clarity to its bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors. Shows impressive vivacity on the finish, which clings with serious spicy tenacity." On Sale!

displays up-front aromas of ripe, dark fruit and exotic spice. Depth and power come from the Cabernet, while a Syrah component lends inviting fleshiness. The wine s full mouthfeel leads to a silky, lasting finish.

This Cabernet Sauvignon offers up-front aromas of ripe red fruit, followed by similar vibrant and rich berry flavors. Silky but firm tannins lend excellent structure, while maintaining a soft approachability reflective of Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine has a ripe finish with good length.

The 2004 Liberty School Cabernet Sauvignon offers upfront aromas of ripe blackberry, chocolate and cassis, with hints of vanillin. Similar deep berry flavors are enhanced by elegant tannins and a rich, full finish. A diversity of porous soils and microclimates among our various vineyards contributes to excellent depth and complexity of flavors in the glass.
