Highly Recommended Paso Robles Cabernet for under $12 a bottle! Save over 40% with our 1 day Insider Deal on the Fossil Point Cabernet Sauvignon.
This one is sure to please both your palate and your wallet.
Paso Robles reds and Cabernet in particular usually come at a premium. One of the reasons for that is the area's unique calcareous soils full of marine fossils, much similar to renowned wine regions like Burgundy, Saint-Emilion and Chateauneuf du Pape.
Today's wine embraces that distinction, even reflecting it in the wine's name.
While it is made predominantly from Cabernet Sauvignon, it also has 19% Merlot to soften things up nicely. Add in 18 months in French oak (mostly used barrels I'm guessing as the wine doesn't show a lot of oaky notes when tasting) and this is a super smooth, easy drinking and quite satisfying wine.
Through today's Insider Deal you can get 6 bottles of this Highly Recommended Paso Cab for just $69.99 or $11.67 a bottle!
That's a savings of almost 42% off the typical $20 price not to mention the additional savings from our $5 shipping.

The Fossil Point Cabernet Sauvignon is 81% Cabernet Sauvignon and 19% Merlot from Paso Robles. It is fermented in stainless steel and then aged 18 months in French oak. Only 1,250 cases were produced.
From the bottle:
On California's Central Coast, our vines are never far from the influence of the sea. Sunny afternoons are tempered by brisk marine breezes, and our climate is directly shaped by the seasonal currents of the Pacific Ocean. Even our soils of calcareous shale and coarse sand were uplifted from the ancient sea floor and weathered into place over the millennia. Fossil Point pays tribute to this bond between sea and vine.
Produced & Bottled by Fossil Point Wines
The 2017 Fossil Point Cabernet Sauvignon begins with pleasing aromas of plum, pencil shavings, licorice and cola.
Taking a sip reveals a medium-bodied, tasty wine full of cola notes. Very smooth in the mouth the wine is not tannic at all and doesn't show a lot of overt oak notes. With the 19% Merlot it makes a great wine for those who prefer their Cabernet soft and smooth.
The wine ends dry and long. Overall, it's a bit on the simple side, but quite satisfying and almost too easy to drink.
