Maddalena Cabernet Sauvignon, Paso Robles
Quality begins in the vineyards. The Riboli Family established estate vineyards in Paso Robles in order to ensure the ultimate level of grape quality. The Paso Robles appellation of San Luis Obispo County provides a dry climate with warm days and cool nights. Fully mature grapes concentrate ripe flavors and aromas.
Our dedication to quality continues in the cellar, where winemakers Anthony Riboli and Arnaud Debons employ traditional techniques to create a flavorful style with ripe fruit and soft tannins. All vineyard lots are fermented seperately to preserve the individual flavors and terroir of each parcel of land. After fermentation, wines are aged in oak barrels from numerous American coopers. Careful blending creates the greatest degree of complexity and ensures consistency of style from vintage-to-vintage.
Maddalena Cabernet Sauvignon shows ripe red fruit, including raspberry, plum, and spicy black cherry. Barrel aging contributes notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak spice. The mouth is round with a rich, silky texture that is framed by soft tannins.
