This is our sixth vintage making Cabernet Sauvignon from Margarita Vineyard in southern Paso Robles.  Margarita Vineyard is a beautiful, off-the-beaten path jewel in Paso. It is located at
1,000 ft. elevation and 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean. Some people may consider this area in California to be “too cool” to fully ripen Cabernet, but we believe it to be the opposite! The
maritime climate affords us a longer growing season to help ripen the Cabernet without it being overly ripe.  This is a very delicate expression of California Cabernet, with mild tannins in
the background from the small berries.  There is also a mineral core to this wine, a common thread that you’ll find in many of the wines from this vineyard making it unique.  The uplifted seabed and calcareous nature of this vineyard helps to maintain a good balanced acidity in the wine.
