An above average Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles, California. Enjoyable by itself or with food. Nicely balanced with mild complexity. Could wait a year or two, but already drinking nicely. A little tight still, but drinkable, nonetheless.

Paired nicely with ribs and baked potato.

Aged for 12 months in Oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
