About This Wine:
As such, Cabernet Sauvignon is often referred to as the king of red winegrapes. This certainly is true in California, where Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet-based blends rank among the state’s most prized bottlings. And while the Napa Valley leads the way in Cabernet vineyard acreage, San Luis Obispo County has surpassed Sonoma County for the runner-up position.
SLO County is where you’ll find the Paso Robles wine region, a place where Cabernet has exploded in popularity among growers, winemakers and wine drinkers alike. Iron Rock Cellars sources its Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from this area, which receives just the right amount of sunshine to ensure perfectly ripened fruit.
The 2018 vintage produced a beautifully balanced wine that seamlessly melds red fruit and spice nuances. It’s a delicious example of why San Luis Obispo County has ascended to California’s No. 2 region for Cabernet.
