In continuing my tasting journey through Domaine Degher’s Paso Robles wines, I opened a bottle of their 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon. I haven’t had many Cabs from Paso (I am usually always reaching for a bottle of Grenache…an excellent choice from the region) so I was looking forward to trying this Central Coast wine.

Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
Domaine Degher’s Cabernet pours an intense, blackish-plum in the glass. The nose intertwines aromas of oak, spice, and dark fruit. This Cabernet has abundant smooth, dark fruit. Voluptuous flavors of plum and blackberry are enveloped with sweet oak. The peppery finish sticks around for a while, balancing out the jammy, fruit forward palate. A nice Cabernet from Domaine Degher!
My Wine Rating- B
Food Pairing Suggestions- Pair this wine with a variety of stronger meats such as steak, duck, and venison.
