K&L Notes

Ancient Peaks produces several varietals from its sprawling Margarita Vineyard, which is the only vineyard located in the Santa Margarita Ranch AVA of Paso Robles on California’s Central Coast. Cabernet Sauvignon is the winery's flagship wine and is able to achieve a balanced ripeness with unique mineral complexity from the estate's diverse mix of soils.

    I've been working at K&L for almost 10 years, and in that time very few wines have offered such consistently excellent quality and value for money as Ancient Peaks. Their spectacular estate vineyards sit within their own AVA of Santa Margarita Ranch. These vines grown in the southernmost part of Paso Robles and only 14 miles from the Pacific ocean, in a climate significantly more moderate than much of the region. The soils are very diverse due to tectonic movement; much of the estate is on old seabed with enormous oyster shells and crumbling chunks of limestone. Other blocks have volcanic basalt, decomposed granite, fractured shale, and rocky alluvium. Basically, this site offers a wonderfully broad palette from which to consistently craft wines of depth, complexity, and balance. Ancient Peak's veteran winemaker, Mike Sinor, is a highly skilled vigneron with decades of experience on the central coast. Though his touch is subtle on these wines, allowing the quality of the fruit and sense of place take the lead, there's a level of polish and sophistication that elevates them well above others in this price category. The 2018 Cab is bursting with fresh blackcurrant and mulberry fruit. Dried herbs, rubbing spice, and briary tones add a nice savory component. Medium to full bodied with greater structure than you'd expect for a $15 Paso Cab, probably owing to the cooler growing conditions of Margarita Vineyard. A fantastic wine to have around this summer when throwing steaks or burgers on the grill. Feels like you're drinking much more expensive wine than it is, and who doesn't love a bargain?!

    Our friends at Ancient Peaks winery have a long history of making bold and delicious wines that offer unbeatable value. Their Cabernet is a K&L staple. Well, the timing for this offer could not be better. It comes just in time for warmer weather, which means outdoor dining and the possibility to entertain again. This bottle has all that big, juicy red and black fruit character that we love about Cabernet Sauvignon. There are no hard and intrusive tannins, and it leaves you with a long and luscious finish. Say hello to one very satisfying bottle of wine. I'll be sure to keep a case laying around the house for springtime. Bravo to wine buyer Ryan Woodhouse for securing a stash of the 2018 Cab at an unbeatable price. This is pure pleasure to drink now.
