|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Slightly dried-fruit notes of fig and cherry, notes of leather, cracked black pepper and some mouth-coating tannin. This one could last another couple of years in the cellar, or drink now with a game meat.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
wow, what a great value for a paso robles cab at $21!! Not over oaky and vanilla! just the right amount of mint, freshness on the aroma. juicy, medium structure, and medium finish on the palate. This can be go-to california cab without breaking the bank!
|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Big and rich beyond it's price, this Cali CS is for the hedonists who like the power of Cali but in the $20 range. A sweet core and full flavour with balanced fruit and oak. Softly structured. Great buy.
|Colette Martin rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby in color with aromas of dark cooked fruit, eucalyptus and a hint of vanilla. The palate has big juicy dark fruit flavors, balance with oak and leather with vanilla. Great value, love Cab Sauvignon from Paso Robles
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Really nice balance here. Aromas of red currant, berry, dried herbs, leather and smoky spice. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with soft tannins, some medium+ acidity, bright red fruit and berry notes, and some soft smoky and leathery notes on the finish. Enjoy with a grilled steak.
|Wine grapes for Concannon Vineyard 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from the Paso Robles. However, in 1965, John Concannon partnered with UC Davis to propagate the Concannon Cabernet clones 7, 8 and 11 taken from Château Margaux cuttings in the Bordeaux. Rich and lush on the palate with ripe dark cherry, cassis, savoury spice with a lingering flinty and smoky vanilla finish. Pair with venison stew. - Community Wine Reviews|
