TASTING NOTE'S:

Further proof that Paso Robles has the ability to craft some of the world’s finest Cabernet Sauvignons, this is the third vintage of this wine. It’s a tribute to founder Jerry Lohr from esteemed blocks of Clone 337 in the high-elevation calcareous soils of the Beck Vineyard, located in the region’s Creston District. Blended with 11% Malbec and aged for 18 months in French oak, it was then transferred to a new set of barrels for a “flash” of two months to accentuate its ageworthiness. Rich, ripe plum accents the aromas and leads to a seamless palate of dry, dusty tannins and Old World acidity. Coffee bean and dark chocolate intertwine with dark summer berries and spiced tobacco. It’s a teeth gripper ’til the end.

-Tasting Panel, 98 pts

 

The nose on this luxury-level bottling is pure and refreshing, offering aromas of black cherry, loamy soil, dried mint and caramel-laced coffee. The palate is framed by upright tannins, yet is soft enough to enjoy now, showing deep flavors of black currant, dried herb, milk chocolate and toffee. Drink 2020–2040.

-Wine Enthusiast, 95 pts

 

Stunning concentration of blackcurrant and blackberry fruit balanced with toasty sweet oak. This wine has real elegance, finesse and a deliciously lingering rich finish.

WINEMAKER'S NOTE:

Beck Vineyard, in the Creston District of Paso Robles, is a unique site. It sits at 1,700 feet above the early morning fog. Its calcareous soils and cooling afternoon winds are perfect for growing Cabernet Sauvignon. The Cabernet from this vineyard ripens early with excellent color, purity of fruit, and phenolic maturity. Malbec is an ideal addition to the blend, as it complements the fruit component of the savory '15 Cabernet Sauvignon. It also supplies a gain in color without adding more tannins.

Blend: 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Malbec
