2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
2013 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a hand selection of three outstanding barrels from our estate vineyard. These barrels showed exceptional ripe blackberry and currant flavors and extraordinary mouth-feel. Two years in French Oak contribute to giving this wine excellent aging potential.
 
Flavors of ripe blackberry and currant.

Tasting notes
Everything you desire in a Cabernet Sauvignon! Ripe blackberry and black currant flavors with a hint of pencil and cigar box in the mid-palate. It pairs perfectly with a peppercorn crusted ribeye steak.

Made entirely from hand-picked, estate-grown grapes this Cabernet Sauvignon hails from the hillsides of our vineyard with limestone shale rock soils. It takes patience to grow this varietal on our ranch as it often is not picked until late October, nearly a month later than a typical Eastside Paso Robles vineyard. The cooling Templeton Gap breezes moderate summer temperatures and combine with our Linne Calado soils for ideal Cab-growing conditions.
Jim Shumate, Winemaker
 
A native of Southern California, Jim's first wine job was working in the barrel room at Meridian Vineyards, where his budding career was greatly influenced by legendary winemaker Chuck Ortman. After several vintages with Meridian as Senior Lab Technician and Senior Barrel Technician, Jim moved on to become Cellar Master and Consulting Winemaker at Templeton Wine Services (where he first met Pomar Junction CEO, Dana Merrill). From 1999 to 2008, this full-service processing facility afforded Jim the opportunity to work with a wide range of varietals, styles and volumes – from small, high-end lots to several-thousand-case productions.
 
While making wine for Templeton Wine Services, Jim was also busy working toward a degree in Enology at Cal Poly University. His involvement at Cal Poly eventually led to an invitation to develop and manage the Cal Poly pilot winery which opened in 2008. As Cellar Master, Winemaker, and Lecturer for the new campus winery, Jim instructed students on procedural operations of all winery equipment, demonstration of lab analysis and interpretation of results. Additionally, Jim co-taught advanced enology classes, operated and repaired all winemaking equipment, and established a new bottling line for the campus winery. After several vintages of hands-on teaching from fruit to bottling, Jim took the position of Winemaker at Pomar Junction in July 2011.
 
He lives in Paso Robles with his wife and children.
