Smith & Hook Cabernet Sauvignon


Despite a third year of drought conditions, the 2014 vintage produced wines with notable concentration and depth. Harvest began a couple of weeks early and went by at a hurried pace. The warmer climate in the San Antonio and Hames Valley of Paso Robles produce fragrant wines, while the cooler vineyards in Arroyo Seco and Hook vineyards yield wines with bright acidity and a luxurious mouthfeel.

A bouquet bursting with notes of dark fruit and hints of spice leads into a structured palate of bright plum, boysenberry, and cherry. The initial fruitiness is complemented by alluring notes of vanilla cream and rich cacao. Expansive flavors and balanced tannins carry through to the smooth, lavish finish.


The robust flavors are a great complement to braised short ribs, mushroom stroganoff, or a charred gruyere burger.
