Loaded with aromatic notes of graphite, violets, and red and black currants, the Meso starts with a very Left Bank styled nose right from the get-go.
On the palate, more subtle notes of cedar, cassia, and iron start to emerge. The palate itself is broad, with large structured but well integrated tannins that transition seamlessly into a long, pleasing finish filled with hints of roasted toffee and espresso dust.
The 2019 Meso Cabernet Sauvignon is a pure representation of Block 8 from Gateway Vineyard in the Willow Creek District of Paso Robles. The well-drained, limestone-rich soils challenge the vines to dig deep and work hard to ripen a naturally low crop load. This in turn creates a perfect expression of classic, restrained yet expressive new world Cabernet.
