This Cabernet Sauvignon comes from prized vineyards in the heart of the Paso Robles appellation, valued for their high mineral content. The rich soil produces structured wines of vibrant colors such as this one, with its rich aromas and flavors of currant and dried cherry. Serve this exceptional red with rich stews, well-marbled cuts of meat, or a variety of hard cheeses.

Many people credit Italian immigrants for bringing Zinfandel with them to California. It actually arrived in New York, first, via Austria; in the 1820s, Zinfandel was used as a table grape and for raisins. Gold rushers brought Zinfandel cuttings wtih them to California about 25 to 30 years later, and planted them to make wine.
