HammerSky made just 137 cases of this Paso Robles cabernet, and that’s a shame. It’s a fruit-forward wine, one with lots of character but one which is still easy to drink. Made with 79% cabernet sauvignon, 16% merlot, and 5% cabernet franc, it’s a deeply purple wine, fat with blueberry character, herbal notes, and a moderate tannin backbone. The finish is jammy, with a green olive tinge to it. Quite nice.
