MY FAVORITE NEIGHBOR CABERNET SAUVIGNON, CALIFORNIA 2020
Varietals: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 8% Petite Sirah, 3% Syrah, and 1% Malbec
Region: Central Coast - Paso Robles
What's so Special: What started as an homage to Stephan Asseo of L’Aventure Winery and his Bordeaux roots quickly became an obsession. Stretching wide across the Westside Hills of Paso Robles is clay soil amazingly similar to those found in Napa and Bordeaux. Today, these special sites are farmed meticulously by the farmers who have become My Favorite Neighbors. With their dedication to the land, MFN is able to craft a world class wine without any shortcuts or compromises.
Tastes Like: Rounded and full bodied, this red fruit-driven wine sings with silky smooth tannins, opulent and rich textures, and an impossibly long finish. This wine is for those that like soft, elegant Cabernets with no rough edges that are ready to drink immediately.
Pairs With: Your Favorite Greasy Burger, Your Favorite Ham Dinner, Your Favorite Neighbor.
What the Pros Say: Wine Advocate - 96 Points " Blended with a bit of Syrah and Petit Verdot, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep ruby-purple color and an alluring fragrance of cassis, violet, aniseed, bitter chocolate and coffee beans. It's notable this vintage for Goldilocks ripeness and seamless lift, offering a chocolate-like texture and very long finish."
