Ancient Peaks is a family-owned winery with some serious acreage in the southernmost part of Paso Robles. All of the wines crafted here are estate-grown and come from the Margarita Vineyard, a special site with special characteristics. Located just 14 miles from the Pacific Ocean in the Santa Lucia Mountain range, this vineyard is cooler and later ripening than most in the hot and arid Paso Robles AVA. The resulting wines have really come into form over the past few vintages, and the proof is in this bottle. 

Coming from the flawless 2018 vintage, this will go down as one of the top California Cabernet Sauvignon values of 2021. This is serious stuff folks! It honestly drinks like a lot of Cabs that cost $40 and up. Deeply colored, full bodied, and beautifully balanced, this is sophisticated and classy Cab at a great price.

As good as it smells and tastes, what really sets it apart is the wine's fine and plump texture. Translated, that means it is smooth and harmonious. The nose is loaded with ripe blackberry and blueberry along with notes of cocoa, toasted herb, and spice. Equally impressive, the palate is ripe, round, and sumptuous, containing similar notes as those found in the bouquet. For fans of big, opulent, classic California Cabs, you need some of this in your life.

I think I've described this one sufficiently, but if you need to verify my statements, do a quick Google search. You'll see that my price is very good and that the press is quite favorable on this one too. Enjoy this one on Memorial Day with burgers, ribs, or barbecued chicken.
