Boar Clinic

What? First time EVER having this wine–no wait, I tasted an Eberle Reserve once about 4 years ago at Paso Robles Cab Collective, but other than that, have fondled these beautiful bottles many MANY times and the cost never overcame the potential of the contents. A good friend plunked this thing down in front of me at dinner and handed me a corkscrew. I didn’t ask twice. Really nicely done. Soft tannins–expected a little more oomph–the whole package smoothly cab-nuanced and extremely balanced.

An absolutely gorgeous cabernet from Paso Robles and one more nail in the coffin of *Paso being only a Rhone & Zin spot*. I agree with Daniel Daou that the region WILL emerge from the long run as a Cabernet powerhouse in not just California, but the entire new world. Of course SOME people–this Eberle is a prime example–have been doing it for decades. DON’T IGNORE THE OLD-SCHOOLERS!

  1. Our neighbor, J. Bond’s cabernet grapes go into the making of the reserve cab and he’s been winning home winemaker golds forever…best of show last year!
