The talk among critics, connoisseurs and Cab-lovers is that Paso Robles is the new Cabernet Country. Rolling hills are covered in vines that bask in afternoon sun and chill out when nighttime temperatures drop nearly 40 degrees—one of the widest diurnal temperature swings in any wine region anywhere. This phenomenon sounds extreme, but it’s ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon. In fact, Paso’s grapes hang out on the vine for a nice long time, allowing the flavors to reach their full, lush potential. Velvety smooth with superb structure and bursting with juicy berry flavors, our Paso Cab more than lives up to the hype, and it’s destined to become your every-day-is-a-special-occasion wine.
Four Vines Cabernet Sauvignon hails from vineyards on Paso’s east side. This region, marked by a combination of warm temperatures, cool nights and gravelly well-draining soils, allows Bordeaux varietals to maintain their natural acidity yet offer ripe, smooth tannins. During fermentation, the juice was pumped over two to three times daily to extract color, flavor and tannin from the fruit. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was gently pressed and racked into French and American oak for 14 months of aging.
Serve with braised short ribs, grilled rib-eye steak or carne asada.
