2021 The Assassin

91 POINTS - Wine Enthisiast

The Assassin, our "killer" Cabernet Sauvignon, is back with a vengeance for 2021. An exceptional vintage by any measure, the 2021 Assassin is lush and velvety, with a streak of mouthwatering acidity and firm tannins. Rich, ruby darkness, shrouded in smoky, intoxicating aromas, The Assassin will lure you in with a firm grip and impactful power. Resistance is futile. Better to simply comply than to try to escape it's dark, irresistible bidding....Sorry. We get a bid carried away but hopefully, you get the picture.

The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes for this vintage were sourced from the Adelaida District on Paso Robles' Westside, where the limestone soils mirror those of Bordeaux. While the daytime temperatures are warm enough to ripen the grapes easily, the coastal influence ushers in cool nights, providing the ideal conditions for the development of beautifully balanced wines. 

The near perfect conditions of the 2021 growing season gave us fruit of exceptional quality. Yields were relatively light but flavor development was exceptional. Firm, ripe tannins and fresh acidity provided the framework for elegant structure and age worthiness. The wine was aged for 18 months in new French and American oak and the final blend created, using 8% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. 

Bursting with blackcurrant and black cherry flavors, the 2021 Assassin is bold yet elegant. While we expect the wine will age gracefully for the next 10 to 15 years, it's certainly ready to drink now. Only 100 cases were produced.
