The 2017 Dusty Nabor Cabernet Sauvignon is slightly denser than in years past with a glowing freshness that keeps the wine leaping from the glass. It shows notes of cassis, leafy herbs, cedarwood, and tobacco with just the right amount of herbal and fresh grass aromas to identify the wine as Cabernet. Ripe tannins and a long finish round out this brilliant expression. This wine should develop easily for 15+ years.

"Subtle aromas of smashed berries and light violet make for a mellow, measured entry into the nose of this bottling from an appellation on the east side of Paso Robles. The palate is cohesive with açaí, Concord grape and dark-berry-sorbet flavors, enhanced by wood spice, light pepper and purple flowers, with lingering acidity into the finish." -MK, 12/31/20
