2017 Foxglove Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1363197 Vinous

 Foxglove's 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is gorgeous. Even better, it is also one of the very best values in California Cabernet readers will come across. A rush of super-ripe dark cherry, tobacco, licorice and plum give the 2017 its racy personality. Voluptuous in the glass, with silky tannins and soft contours, the 2017 will be impossible to resist upon release. (AG)  (7/2018)

Reminded of the story of the ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes who held out a lamp in search of an honest man (the flashlight wasn't invented until 1899) I pondered the odds of finding an honest California Cabernet Sauvignon for around $15. Success! The Foxglove abounds in ripe Paso Robles fruit- mouthwatering layers of blackberries. cherries and plums with hints of eucalyptus and smooth, velvety tannins, the perfect highly-quaffable, everyday Cabernet for parties, picnics, and barbecues.

Foxglove has good track record of producing delicious wines for a reasonable price. The 2017 Paso Robles Cabernet continues this tradition. It is ready to drink and enjoy now with soft body and dark fruit flavors.This wine will be great alone or will go well with hearty foods.

Surprisingly well structured! Good balance of acidity, fruit, and tannin impart a sense of complexity to this reasonably priced Cabernet. Paso Robles fruit shows itself with a touch of spice on the lingering finish. Good stuff!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Cabernet Sauvignon and Blends

- Cabernet Sauvignon has come a long way from its role as a blending varietal, however dominant, in the wines of Bordeaux. Today it is the most planted red varietal in the world. Identified as a descendent of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, the late-ripening Cabernet Sauvignon needs to be planted in warmer climates to fully ripen. Its small berries can easily be identified for their distinctive blue color, thick skins and high tannins. And while the varietal has its own definitive characteristics: green pepper-like aromas and black currant flavors among them, it is perhaps most prized for its ability to convey terroir, vintage and winemaking. A relatively new varietal, Cabernet Sauvignon started making inroads into the wines of the Médoc and Graves in the late-18th century. Today it is also dominant in the up-and-coming Entre-Deux-Mers region of Bordeaux and can also be found in Southwest France. It is the companion varietal to Sangiovese in Italy's Super Tuscans and is planted all over Europe, stretching to lesser-known winegrowing regions like Russia and Lebanon. In the Americas Cabernet Sauvignon has found champions in every nook and cranny of California and among winemakers in Washington, where it complements plantings of Merlot. In South America, Cab thrives in Chile, but can also be found in smaller amounts in Argentina and even in Mexico.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.
Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
Specific Appellation:

Paso Robles

- Located about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles, this inland AVA enjoys a sunny and hot growing period while its seaside neighbors hang in the fog. Zinfandel is the traditional red grape of choice, though cabernet, chardonnay, and Rhône varietals are gaining favor. Most are made in a fruit-forward, early drinking style.
