Friday Wine Tasting… Broadside Paso Robles Margarita!

February 6, 2015


Wine Of the Week:

Broadside Paso Robles Margarita Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2011


 Winemakers Notes:

Fine California cabernet sauvignon is not restricted to Napa Valley. I’ve had wonderful cabernets from Sonoma and the Santa Cruz Mountains, and this one from one of the cooler areas in Paso Robles. I’ve enjoyed Broadside’s classically structured cabernet for several vintages now, and the ’11 is especially good: dry, rich and slightly tannic, with snappy red fruit and an herbal tinge.
