2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles RESERVE
Breathe in the aromatic ripeness of black cherry, cassis and boysenberry. This full-bodied wine integrates an ample amount of ripe black fruit with vanilla, cinnamon spice, sweet tobacco and savory notes of leather with hints of cedar. The 2018 Cabernet Reserve is rich and complex wine supported by velvety soft smooth tannins, making this wine easy to drink upon release but will offer even more rewards after a few years in your cellar.
Winereviewonline: Lightpost Winery, Paso Robles (Central Coast, California) Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Winemaker Christian Roguenant knows a thing or two about Paso Robles fruit after years on California’s Central Coast. Don’t let his affinity for Burgundian varieties deter you from giving this Cabernet a look – he brings us what Paso does best here, with rich ripe fruit tempered by balanced oak toast, vanilla and brown spice. There’s a rustic edge that works well, making it suitable for bold beef preparations. A Platinum Award winner at the 2021 San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge.
