About the Wine
The Cabernet Sauvignon wines from the Paso Robles appellation have an intense fruit flavor profile, powerful tannin, and bright acidity levels. Cabernet Sauvignon grape vines were planted in the 1970s, and soon after, the Paso Robles Cabernet wine gained popularity worldwide. The Name “The Insider” comes from the confidentiality agreement they had to sign in order to purchase the grapes from the vines of a well known winery producing world class wines.
The color of this fine Cabernet is medium plum with brick red edges. The aromas are deep with supple bing cherry and dried cherry notes and backed by integrated vanilla and toasted oak. The palate enters with silky tannins and is wrapped generously with ripe cherry and cassis. The palate is multi-layered with cherry and boysenberry with layers of integrated French oak tannins and lactone which brace the fruit and provide a matrix on which the fruit presents itself in elegant fashion.
This Cab pairs perfectly with richer flavors like a classic baked ham or even prime rib, for those who want to create their own Thanksgiving traditions.
The Wine Down
This cab, whose pedigree would normally call for a much higher price tag would be a fabulous choice for your Thanksgiving dinner.
