2021 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon

To continue the Pey Family's legacy of delivering Cabernet Sauvignon with power and elegance, Winemaker Abigail Horstman and Founder Jonathan Pey have traveled to Paso Robles for the 2021 vintage.

Individual lots spent 13 months aging in 100% French Oak before Abigail hand-selected the final blend. Small amounts of Syrah and Petite Sirah — which also thrive in Paso — were added for structure and depth. The result is the signature TEXTBOOK richness yet restraint, allowing this Cabernet to be paired with an array of cuisines or simply enjoyed on its own.

Vintage: 2021

Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

AVA: Appellation

  • Paso boasts the greatest diurnal temperature swing in California, experiencing a 50° difference from day to night.

  • Hot days ensure grapes develop complexity, while cool nights prolong the growing season, allowing grapes to fully mature while maintaining acidity.

  • The region’s diverse mineral-rich soils, particularly those with calcareous composition, imbue the wine with a distinct minerality.
