Castoro Cellars [Organic] Cabernet Sauvignon (2018)
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.
