Project Paso 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml Our Project Paso Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent example of high quality Paso Robles Cabernet. The nose is multi-layered, with wild, dusty blackberry, hints of jalapeño, leather, and dried mushrooms from Paso's rich, red soils. On the palate, flavors of black cherry, dark plum, and cinnamon-spiked strawberry preserves come together with integrated, mouth-watering acidity. Small amounts of Petite Sirah and Grenache, two other full-bodied red varietals that thrive in Paso Robles, are blended into this wine, adding to the rustic body and earthy flavors. Medium-bodied with moderate tannins, the finish lingers with cherry, tobacco leaf and cedar notes. Our 2009 Project Paso Cabernet is sourced from several vineyards throughout Paso Robles, creating a collective profile of the region. Aged on 50% French and 50% American oak, this wine is a steakhouse Cab, and pairs well with a classic American Ribeye and baked potatoes with bacon and chives. For lunch or a casual dinner, open up a bottle with a tri-tip sandwich with grilled onions and peppers.
