The 2017 Oyster Ridge exemplifies Paso Robles' growing renown as an elite region for Cabernet Sauvignon. The aroma profile presents a captivating intermingling of red fruits, blueberry and black currant with accents of mint, forest floor and toasted oak. An extravagantly deep palate cascades with luxurious layers of blackberry, boysenberry, black olive, chocolate, tobacco and cedar, all underpinned by hints of eucalyptus and baking spice. A plush, seamless texture exhibits a sleek sense of minerality, while firm, chewy tannins add a powerful touch to a seemingly endless finish.

Aromas of black plum, sandalwood, coffee, tea and smoked teriyaki show on the savory nose of this blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec, 4% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot. The palate shows meatier tones of smoked beef, hoisin sauce and cracked pepper, with a caramelized finish.

Opaque violet. Ripe blackberry, cherry, pipe tobacco and vanilla on the oak-accented nose. Fleshy and expansive in the mouth, offering spice-laced black/blue fruit flavors and hints of candied licorice and vanilla that build in the glass. Finishes on a bitter cherry note, delivering solid thrust, rounded tannins and very good persistence.
