Fact and Valor is a Paso Robles vineyard focusing closely on cabernet sauvignon and zinfandel. Immediately we take a look at two of these cabs, each from the 2019 classic.
2019 Fact and Valor Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles – Large and a bit pruny, this can be a classically constructed California cab, daring with currants and a few mild, plump raisin notes, fading into parts of cloves and darkish chocolate. A bit candy, and thinner than the Reserve bottling, however equally expressive with its wealthy fruitiness, although lighter notes of herbs and a few natural greenery parts are likely to perk up on the conclusion.

2019 Fact and Valor Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Paso Robles Santa Margarita Ranch – Aggressive notes of black cherry, currants, and baking spice give this wine each an opulence and an approachability. Frivolously candy and wealthy in physique, with ubiquitous, plump berry notes, if there ever was a tannic spine on this wine it disintegrated early on, forsaking only a gentle layer of licorice sweet and bittersweet chocolate. Notes of violets perk up late into the end, including the lightest layer of nuance to an in any other case easy — however well-priced — cab. A- / $35
