Review: 2020 Ancient Peaks Cabernet Sauvignon Paso Robles

This Paso Robles-grown cabernet sauvignon (made with an unusual blend of 78% cab, 7% petit verdot, 6% malbec, 6% petit sirah, and 3% syrah) comes across like many Ancient Peaks reds — heavy with beef and ruddy earth notes, its fruit locked up in slightly astringent, balsamic notes. Notes of spiced plum and licorice give this wine some moments of intrigue, but the balance never quite gets there, notes of roasted meat lingering alongside a mild floral note on the lengthy, extracted finish.
