“The No-Napa Guide to California Cabernet”
“Everyone knows Napa Valley makes great Cabernet Sauvignon. But now exciting cabs are arriving from the ‘other’ California, like Santa Barbara’s Happy Canyon region and Lake County’s obsidian-strewn hills. Here, a guide to the state's lesser-known wine regions.”
Paso Robles
“Paso Robles is famous as a source for big, bold, rich Zinfandels, wines supercharged by the region’s seemingly inexhaustible warmth and sunlight. But the truth is that Paso Robles, which is located between Monterey and Santa Barbara, inland from the Pacific Coast, has more Cabernet Sauvignon planted than any other wine grape variety. These aren’t shy wines: Paso Robles Cabernets exemplify richness, often showing notes of ripe blackberry and plum, soft tannins and plenty of concentration.”

“This bottling is a great introduction to the Paso style—dark, plummy and lush—and, despite the name, it isn’t overly oaky either.”

“This co-mingling holds 80% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Petit Verdot. Juicy blackberry and cassis make up the wine’s fruit component, accompanied by solid structure and tannins, and an unusual sprinkling of coconut macaroon.”

“Cracked pepper and sagebrush aromas give a sense of importance to the more hedonistic scents of buttered blueberries on this top-end bottling from the longtime producer. Black cherries and elderberries arise on the otherwise minty palate, and the tannins prove quite gripping. They will unwind and be best 2018–2022.”

“Sumptuous black cherry notes and a good deal of oak. The palate is juicy and velvety with dark and red fruit tones and a touch of cinnamon and vanilla. Tannins might need to soften, but it’s still a plush, opulent wine to approach now. Drink 2016-2030.”

“The nose brings notes of chocolate and toffee as well as a hint of tar and graphite. Full bodied, rich and concentrated with firm tannins – quite chocolatey. A very plush and well-made wine. Drink 2015-2035.”

“My Top Three” 
2011 J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon  
“A fabulous, complex wine. The mix of red and dark fruit, sweet spices and notes of coffee, leather, cedar and tobacco finished by integrated tannins was a nice surprise. One of the best Cabs I have tasted from Paso Robles.”
