This Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep, dark, inky purple color. The aromas are comprised of concentrated blue fruit such as wild huckleberry and blueberries. The mid-palate is mouth coating with ripe cassis and juicy plum with spicy cinnamon-clove spice and generous blackberry flavor. The finish is silky smooth with balanced acidity, soft medium vanilla tannins and long boysenberry textured aria.
The Insider is carefully crafted from grapes grown within 4 subdistricts within the Paso Robles AVA: Adelaida, Templeton Gap, Creston and Santa
Margarita Ranch. We vinify each of these vineyards separately and process and ferment each independently to bring the best out of each vineyard. After a 3-4 day cold soak we ferment each Cabernet lot over 3 daily pumpovers prolonging the skin contact until 14 days have elapsed. We then rack each onto French oak and put the wines through MaloLactic fermentation. Once the wines are racked and sulfured and laid to rest in 2 year old French oak for a period of 18 months and finished for the final 3 months in new French oak. During its life in the cellar it is racked 4 times. Once the final blend has been made the final (5th rack) combines our selection of each vineyard which is clearly expressed in the bottle.
The name “The Insider” comes from the confidentiality agreement we had to sign in order to purchase the grapes from the vines of a well known winery producing world class wines. With our insider connections and knowledge we are able to offer you a wine of exceptional quality and pedigree at a price that will amaze.
