2015 Foxglove Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1307606 Jeb Dunnuck

 Also brought up all in stainless steel, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is a dark fruit driven, peppery and tobacco-scented effort that has plenty of fruit, firm tannin and a good finish. It too is ideal for drinking over the coming couple of years. As with the Zinfandel, value is the name of the game. (JebDunnuck.com)  (8/2017)

The Varner's Foxglove label continues to offer great wines at great prices. Once again, the Cabernet is a fantastic offering. Medium bodied, with a dark fruited core and pretty floral notes on the nose.
Top Value!

Foxglove = screaming deal! Terrific Cabernet. Classic dark Paso Robles fruit with just a hint of tobacco and enough tannin to give it some umph. This is an everyday California Cab that really stands out.

If you never had Paso Robles Cabernet before, this is the place to start! This Cabernet Sauvignon displays a flavorful deluge of rich black currant, hints of cherry and a long finish of sweet mocha and velvety tannins, with hints of that Paso terroir that I love.

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
