Ancient Peaks Cabernet

Home > Shop > Ancient Peaks Cabernet

The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon comes primarily from blocks 49 and 50 at Margarita Vineyard, where rocky sedimentary and shale soils promote naturally low vigor for the development of intensely flavored fruit. The remainder of the Cabernet Sauvignon comes from block 15, where ancient sea bed soils and cooler growing conditions yield fruit with firmer structure and tannins. The final blend includes Syrah from Block 47 (sedimentary) and Malbec from Block 45 (shale)—all combining to contribute added dimension and nuance. Margarita Vineyard stands alone as the only vineyard in the Santa Margarita Ranch AVA along the southernmost border of the Paso Robles region. Here, just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean, the land is flanked by the rugged peaks of the Santa Lucia Mountains— testaments to the tectonic forces that blessed Margarita Vineyard with its rare diversity of soils. The peaks also act as a gateway between the cool marine air to the south and warm inland conditions to the north. This phenomenon creates one of the coolest growing environments in the Paso Robles region, resulting in fruit of uncommon depth and structure.
