Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Dark red berries, cocoa and new leather aromas show on the nose of this reliable bottling from a regional icon. There is a hefty feeling to the chalky, sandy tannins, zippy acidity and familiar flavors of dark red fruit, herbs and turned earth.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Castoro Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon is smooth on the palate and drinks easily. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows up with aromas and flavors of black fruit, dried herbs, and licorice. Enjoy with grilled short ribs. (Tasted: May 17, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
Winemaker Notes
Garnet red color. Aromas of blackberry and black currant, toasted marshmallow, and vanilla spice. On the palate, notes of black plum, raspberry, and blackberry, medium tannins, and lean acid.

The Paso Rob­les grow­ing region is per­fect for grow­ing Caber­net Sauvi­gnon. The fruit loves the warm days and cool nights that run through the grow­ing sea­son. Our Caber­net Sauvi­gnon is packed with black fruit and rasp­ber­ry fla­vors framed by vanil­la spice nuances from both Amer­i­can and French oak. This broad-shoul­dered Caber­net Sauvi­gnon is ready to drink now, but also has for­mi­da­ble aging potential.

Notes from our Winemaker

I was for­tu­nate enough to be able to con­struct 80% of this wine from our prized Whale Rock vine­yard. The bal­ance is from our east­side estate vines. To mit­i­gate the hefty tan­nins inher­ent in the Whale Rock Cab I incor­po­rat­ed some Mal­bec and Syrah into the blend. A long 18 months in oak bar­rel also aid­ed the soft­en­ing but you will still find enough tan­nin to reward a year or two of bot­tle age.
