Joseph Carr Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the Central Coast's Paso Robles AVA, which has been enjoying a well-deserved explosion in popularity. Located near the Pacific Ocean, Paso Robles boasts the largest diurnal range of any wine region in CA. This swing between daytime and nighttime temperatures - up to 50 degrees Fahrenheit! - is due to cool marine air flowing east through the Templeton Gap and south along the Salinas River from the Monterey Bay. The result is Cabernet Sauvignon with rich fruit, full bodies, and silky tannins, but with a firm acid backbone.
The wine shows notes of black cherry, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavors of blackberry and sweet spice emerge on the palate, bolstered by a firm acidity, velvety tannin's, and a long finish.
