Paso Robles is one of California’s most pastoral domains. Its name roughly translates to “Passageway of Oak,” and indeed, majestic trees mark the landscape. Amongst the rolling hills and native habitat lie manicured vineyards where ideal soil exists for farming Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. Dry, warm conditions are typical, yet evenings are chilled by a breeze from the Pacific coast just 18 miles to the west, allowing fruit to ripen into luxurious richness. At nearly 1,000 feet, soils are elevated sea beds where shell fossils are often found."
