Soul Searching


​I’ve resigned myself to never being invited to another Paso Robles cab event but seriously people the emperor has no clothes here. Despite the constant mantra to the contrary this is not world class cab this is not Napa class cab this isn’t even Paso class cab. Tarry and meager, no fruit What. So. Ever.  Odd nuances, bland and vapid. Just say no.

You have to understand–as locals–we get a constant and well-funded diatribe against Napa pounded into our skulls incessantly by this house. There’s just no there there.

You want REAL Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon?  Get J. Lohr Cuvee Series Pom, Pau, & St.E; Broadside EPHEMERA; Ancient Peaks White Label Cab.  There’s a few others which compel from time to time, but that’s pretty much my list.
