Known as the “Wild West” of the wine industry, Paso Robles is celebrated for its innovation and creativity at the forefront of winemaking. To introduce our first ever release from the Paso Robles AVA, we teamed up with WSET 3 certified Wine Blogger and Certified Specialist of Wine, Raquel Royers of @watchmesip, to tell us all we need to know about this premier California wine region. Pour yourself a glass of Lot 210 Cabernet Sauvignon and journey through the rolling hills of Paso Robles with us! 

Calling all California wine lovers! If you're looking to stock up on a delicious wine, keep reading because this Paso Robles Cabernet is for you! 

If you’re not familiar, Paso Robles is an established, up and coming wine region located on California’s Central Coast about a 30 minute drive from San Luis Obispo. Paso Robles has seen tremendous growth in the last couple of years, making it a top destination for wine lovers near and far. If you’re reading this, I bet you’ve already got your eye on it.

I’ve personally been to Paso Robles two times and every time I leave, I immediately want to start planning my next trip. It’s packed with over 200 wineries, beautiful rolling hills and feels very charming and quaint. It's also less touristy than one of our other favorite wine regions, Napa. No shade to our friends in the Napa Valley (we love you), but you know what I mean.

Fun Facts about Paso Robles Wine Country: 

  • Paso Robles has 11 sub AVA’s
  • Paso Robles grows over 60 different wine grape varieties
  • Paso Robles has 40,000 vineyard acres
  • Paso Robles is a Mediterranean climate, making it ideal for grape growing
  • Paso Robles has a long winemaking history. The first vines were planted in the early 1920's

So, what kind of wine is being made in Paso? Great question! Due to the warm climate, but coastal influences (aka a large, diurnal shift), you’ll find a variety of grapes being grown in Paso Robles. There’s also a wide range of soils and microclimates throughout, making it suitable for a number of varieties. In fact, Paso Robles grows over 60 different wine grape varieties. However, Paso has primarily made a name for itself making Bordeaux, (Cabernet, Cabernet blends, Merlot) and Rhone (Syrah, Grenache, GSM’s) style wines. 

While both styles of wines are incredibly delicious, today we’re talking about Cabernet and 90+ Cellars Lot 210 Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon. And wow, what a beautiful wine! If you’re a Napa Cabernet fan, get excited because this Paso Cab just became your favorite weeknight treat. 


This wine is boasting with big, bold, voluptuous flavors of dark fruits, cocoa powder and tobacco. Despite its big character energy, it’s juicy and plush on the palate. Sip this beaut on its own while curled up on the couch deep into a Netflix binge session, or pair it with a hearty meal. I’m thinking a wine braised short rib or portobello burger would do the trick with this. Yum, my mouth is watering just thinking about it...

As 90+ Cellars works directly with the growers, you won’t find another Paso Cabernet for this price that is the same quality and level of deliciousness. You can try, but I suggest saving your time, palate and dollar bills just snag a few bottles...or case, of this one. Happy sipping!
