Wine of the Week - Clesi Cabernet Sauvignon

With colder temperatures setting in and the first flakes of snow falling in parts of the country, it's time to start popping open the big, muscular reds that warm us up during this time of year. Enter the Clesi Cabernet Sauvignon from Paso Robles. High toned aromatics include black currant, cedar, and ripe berry pie. The palate is approachable for a Cab of this age. The wine is balanced and fruit forward
– true to a Paso Robles and Templeton Gap AVA, but restrained in its ripeness and alcohol.

Clesi is an independent family winery based in San Luis Obispo, California.  Founded in 2004, Chris and Adrienne Ferrara began producing wines sourced exclusively from the diverse microclimates of the Central Coast. The intent at Clesi is to merge the exceptional quality produced on the Central Coast with the complexity and restraint necessary to create an elegant and food-focused wine. In addition, the winery has recently begun producing a limited quantity of amphora-aged (imported Tuscan terracotta) wines crafted with minimal intervention and showcasing Chris’ intention of bringing the fruit from the earth, to the earth, then straight to bottle
