Calcareous 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon York Mountain - Paso Robles

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Calcareous Vineyard's York Mountain property in Paso Robles, known for its distinctive cool-climate Cabernet with excellent natural acidity, superb structure, and wondrous aging potential. By adding a touch of Malbec and Petit Verdot (3% each) to the mix, the final blend sees a different dimension of fruit expression with a unique layered complexity on the nose. The Calcareous 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded 93 Points and a Gold Medal at the World Wine Championships, as well as a Gold Medal at the West Coast Wine Competition. This Cabernet is a pleasant surprise in that it retains the abundant dark red and purple vibrancy of youth, yet it enjoys the complex palette and integration of maturity. Mountain top Manzanita aromas lead to black currant, cherry and layered mocha chocolate flavors with a silky, soft texture and lingering finish. It is very rewarding now, but will age beautifully for many years to come. [+]
