Annual celebration of Cabernet Sauvignon and red Bordeaux varietals, Friday, October 14, 2016
September 1, 2016 (Paso Robles, Calif) – On Friday, October 14, the Paso Robles CAB (Cabernet And Bordeaux) Collective (PRCC), pasoroblescab.com, will hold its annual CABs of Distinction Grand Tasting bringing consumers face-to-face with acclaimed producers of over 75 different Cabernet and red Bordeaux varietals from Paso Robles. The event will take place at the picturesque Allegretto Vineyard Resort, from 4 PM to 6PM.
The Paso Robles appellation’s warm days, cool nights, and long growing season contribute to exceptional balance, texture, and structure in Cabernet Sauvignon and red Bordeaux varietal wines, recognized by sommeliers, journalists, and in-the-know consumers as among the best in the world. At the CABs of Distinction Grand Tasting, guests will be treated to tastings of the finest Cabernet and red Bordeaux-blend wines the region has to offer, accompanied by live music and small bites prepared by Executive Chef Eric Olson of Cello Ristorante & Bar.
“While Paso Robles has been synonymous with the Rhône movement for over a decade now, it is worth noting the quality of the Bordeaux varieties coming from these limestone hills today. I’m increasingly seeing incredible wines based largely on Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and other Bordeaux va
rieties from Paso Robles. While it may be hard for readers to believe, trust me when I tell you that these top-quality releases are a match for the best wines from California’s North Coast,” said Jeb Dunnuck, RobertParker.com, August 31, 2016.
Event access will be provided to qualified media. Tickets for this exceptional event are $65. Designated drivers are encouraged, for which tickets are $35 each. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit pasoroblescab.com/events.
