This 30 Degree wine will serve as a great companion to a meal or as a wine to be enjoyed on its own. 30 Degree wines are great examples of quality wine at a great value. These California appellation wines are sophisticated blends from quality California growing regions, like Monterey, Paso Robles, Clarksburg, and Lodi.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon is slowly fermented to maintain the aroma of currants and dried cherries, while extracting the colors and flavors associated with the Paso Robles region. The wine was aged in a combination of American and French oak to add complexity and to allow the wine to soften prior to bottling. This wine will accompany grilled meats, hearty stews, and a variety of cheeses.
In 2014, proposals to create specific sub-AVAs in Paso Robles were ratified and the region was divided into 11 new designated appellations. Previously, Paso Robles had been the largest AVA in California to remain un-subdivided; in contrast, it is three times the size of the Napa Valley viticultural area, which has 16 individual designated sub-appelations. The sub-division recognizes the diverse growing regions in Paso Robles, with elevations ranging from 700 to 2400 feet, a range of soils, and varying degrees of regional influence of the marine effects of the Pacific Ocean.
