One of the world’s most exciting wine regions, Paso Robles is the pinnacle of Central California’s winegrowing region with 11 distinct sub-AVAs. Rolling terrain, varied soils and warm days and cool nights provide exquisite growing conditions to craft award-winning wines. Founded on hard work and self-made prosperity, Robert Hall is a pillar of the vibrant and premier Paso Robles wine region. Our acclaimed winemaker, Don Brady, is the creative force behind our premium wines, cultivating the best vineyards to express the spirit of the valley.
The intense dark ruby red color of our Cabernet Sauvignon is reflective of this full-bodied, flavorful wine. The core of black currant and hints of cedar and spice along with cocoa aromas echoed by rich persistent flavors of plush ripe fruit, dark chocolate and anise are all supported by balanced, rich velvety tannins.
Our Cabernet Sauvignon has the largest proportion of Estate fruit in our wine lineup. We crisscross the AVA to source grapes from warm sites with good exposure, which helps create a juicy, full-bodied wine.
2016 began with below average rainfall as Paso Robles was affected by drought. The dry start was followed by above average warm temperatures through June, when temperatures became more moderate. The early warm weather accelerated fruit development and allowed for an improved fruit set compared to 2015. While harvest came early to many, the mild temperatures extended our growing season which improved overall grape quality. Temperatures remained seasonal until above average rainfall in late October concluded our harvest. Overall, we experienced a busy season with prime conditions for ripening. The 2016 vintage has excellent depth of color and wonderful flavor maturity.
