Here's a new wine from The Wine Group who make Cupcake wines but also own Concannon as well as Benziger Vineyards. Their focus is producing wines from the best regions for the particular varietal and bringing them out at a great price, and no region is hotter right now for Cabernet than Paso Robles. A past winner of the Wine Enthusiast Region of the Year Wine Star Award, Paso Robles Cabs are garnering lots of attention and plenty accolades. This wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon macerated for 14 days in stainless steel and and here's where the Slow Press comes in. After maceration the wine is pressed off the skins gently and slowly so as not to extract excess tannins. The wine was then aged 11 months in American oak barrels. It's classic Cab with bright cassis, blackberry and black cherry notes. Hints of toasty oak add to the flavor profile and the tannins are velvety and soft. The wine finishes dry and smooth with a lingering notes of black cherry. Hard to find a cab this good for the price.
