Riding the Paso Robles Horse


Paso Robles is an up and coming vineyard region in california that (I think) makes excellent cabernets at a fraction of the price found in NAPA. This particular wine was a gift to my girlfriend from a good friend of hers from New York. Why "Wild Horse"? I said. "Because I was born in the year of the horse, and I'm wild", duh!, was the answer.

Anyway, their Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 turned out to be quite nice. Initially closed, it opened up nicely with time and shone with food. A tight, well structured effort with berry highlights hiding in the background.

The Verdict: A solid "Good". Value: Unknown since I don't know the purchase price, but if less than $20, it's a solid buy.

ps - notice all the food groups in the picture?...protein, carbos, a little lipid and, of course, a little flavoured ethanol!!!

Cheers!!

Good info on Paso Robles wines. If you want to hear interviews with wine makers from this area check out our podcasts at www.grapevineradio.net.

I think you'll enjoy the lively discussions about the wine, food and events in California's third largest and fastest growing wine regio
