About This Wine:
It serves as something of a dividing line between two winegrowing areas that have come to be known as Paso’s west side and east side. The east side offers visitors expansive views of vineyards and the adjacent countryside, not to mention a number of unique wineries.
It also has become a hub of Cabernet Sauvignon growing because, generally speaking, the east side experiences warmer weather than the west side (with some variations from north to south), and the Cabernet variety prefers warmer climes.
For its 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon, Allston Estates utilized grapes from the east side, and blended in a small portion of Petite Sirah to intensify the color and lend complexity. The cuvee showcases lots of ripe fruit flavor, joined by a hint of sage and a kiss of dark chocolate — a decadent taste of Paso’s east side.
