2020 Fundamental (Tensley) Central Coast Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Winery Notes- This wine is sourced equally from Paso Robles and Santa Barbara County, bringing the best each region has to offer to the bottle. The climate and clay soils of Paso Robles bring amazing power, color, earth notes, black currants, bacon and dry, rich tannins to the table, while the Santa Barbara County fruit, having grown in a cooler climate with sandier soils, keeps the wine fresh and balanced, with pretty notes of plum and cherry. While the quality of this wine could hold its own in any price category, it’s sure to rival any Cabernet at this price point.

ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 2020 Fundamental Cabernet Sauvignon has a medium to deep ruby color and scents of baked cherries, thyme, milk chocolate and potpourri. The palate is full-bodied yet light on its feet, with lots of refreshing acidity, an alluring, supple texture and long, perfumed finish. Enjoy this easy-drinking Cabernet over the next year or two.
