Eberle Winery has showcased the history and diversity of the Paso Robles Appellation since 1979. Eberle Winery continues to be family owned and operated. Some oak and vanilla, but not excessive, from 22 months in 100% French oak barrels. Tech notes do not say so, but many of those barrels must have been second-third-plus use. One third of the juice fermented with a submerged cap to deliver additional color and flavors. Remaining juice fermented in stainless steel with twice-daily pump overs to deliver expressive, 100% cabernet sauvignon Paso Robles fruit from Eberle’s 25-year-old vines.
Plenty of texture on the initial attack, then black plum, dark fruits, Paso Robles dust take over on the mid-palate and finish. Black pepper on the end of the finish. Smooth overall, especially for a big-fruit cab. Avoids jammy. Benefits from decanting.
The lush qualities of this wine combined with its velvety tannins make it a perfect wine to pair with rich red meats; grilled steaks; filet mignon with balsamic glaze; slow-cooked beef stew; short ribs braised with mushrooms and tomatoes; rosemary braised lamb shanks; lamb tagine; blue cheese burgers.

This wine is crafted in a rich, California style that provides a pleasing body and a lingering finish. The ripe fruit flavors include passion fruit and guava accented by a hint of minerality.
White meats including Chicken, Pork Chop and Turkey with green herbs including parsley, basil, mint, tarragon, thyme, fennel, dill, chives and rosemary. For cheese, look for softer more briny and sour cheeses like goat's milk cheese, yogurt, and crème fraîche.
