We were invited to the inaugural CABs of Distinction event created by the Paso Robles CAB (Cabernet and Bordeaux) Collective (PRCC), a grass-roots collaboration of wineries to create better awareness of the Cabernet and Bordeaux varietals produced in the Paso Robles appellation.

Current members include: ADELAIDA Cellars, B&E Vineyard, Chateau Margene, DAOU Vineyards & Winery, Eberle Winery, HammerSky Vineyards, J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines, Jada Vineyard, JUSTIN Vineyards & Winery, L’Aventure, Parrish Family Vineyards, Record Family Wines, Robert Hall Winery, Sextant Wines, Venteux Vineyards and Vina Robles.

The first of four media and trade-only events was En Primeur, a barrel tasting of the vinters’ best of 2012 vintages. We had the opportunity to meet and speak with many of the wine makers and to taste the yet-to-be-bottled and in some cases, yet to be blended, wines. This was a unique opportunity to try these varietals in their unaltered state.
