From the bottle:
“We made this wine with Cabernet grapes from Paso Robles in San Luis Obispo County, where a long, dry growing season and substantial fluctuations in day-to-night temperatures translate to intense flavors on the vine. The result is a wine with abundant dark jam flavors and a touch of caramel.
Paso Robles, “The Pass of the Oaks”, is one of the more popular Central Coast growing regions in California currently, but it is by no means new. In fact, winemaking started here in the 1790s with the Franciscan Friars. Today the area grows over 40 different varieties, but it may be best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2009 Bridlewood Estate Winery Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon begins with aromas of blackberry, spice and cedar. The wine tastes of jammy fruit, molasses and mocha and has very light tannins. The finish is dry and slightly sweet. Overall a simple and easy to drink red wine that will please a lot of different palates.
