Paso Robles Cab Collective


In the warm, golden hills and valleys of the Paso Robles AVA, Cabernet Sauvignon grapes can linger on the vine, thriving in the well-drained soil until their fullest potential for lush ripeness is achieved. The long growing season allows this late-ripening variety ample time to develop not only the superb structure that makes it one of the most respected grapes in the world, but a rich, mouth-filling fleshiness that’s admired by winemakers whose growing seasons are shorter. Paso’s iconic diurnal shifts bring long, cool nights—and breezes from the Pacific funnel through the famous Templeton Gap, dropping temperatures to preserve a balanced acidity that keeps the palate eagerly coming back for more. More classic Paso Robles Cabernet, that is.

The Paso Robles AVA continues to produce an ever-growing field of critically acclaimed wines, and yet it is the potential of Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varieties that has savvy connoisseurs virtually quivering with excitement. The Paso Robles CAB Collective exists to help spread the word. Learn so much more about Cabernet in Paso at
