Clayhouse Wines Red Cedar Vinyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Paso Robles, California 

My Rating 85 Points.   

Price $15. 
A nice ruby color with a wide purplish rim.

A light California Cabernet nose of blackberries, plums, cherries, licorice, oak, light vanilla, chocolates, herbes, medium roasted coffee and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Fruity on the palate with plums, cherries, strawberries, currants, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates and spices.

Medium finish with soft tannins and tart cranberries.

An easy drinking red wine from Paso Robles, California. Simple and enjoyable by itself, or with food.

This Single Vineyard is not fully balanced and not one for aging, so drink now. Nice acidity at the ending for some interesting finish.

Grapes are grown on clay soil, fermented for 2 weeks, and aged for 9 months in steel and oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
