Pius Cabernet Sauvignon Adelaida District Paso Robles 2018

  • Grape Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Country USA
  • Region Paso Robles
  • Case size 12 / 75cl
  • 95 Points "Very dark in the glass, this showers the nose with complex aromas of dark cocoa, black olive, peppercorn, tar, espresso and mint. There's a creamy and focused cassis kick to the sip, but it's the slightly bitter coffee and charred earth aspects that are most compelling.

A new Cabernet from a major winemaking talent. For many years the head winemaker of Daou Vineyards, Anthony Versochi has finally decided to start making some wines under his own name and label. In this he’s been lucky to have the full support of his mentor Danny (and therefore the extensive use of the superb Daou facilities – not to be sniffed at!) I met Anthony in May, at the top of Daou Mountain. Sitting in a beautiful tasting room with views across half of Paso Robles and one of his superb bottles in front of us really bought the wine in the glass to light, a perfect distillation of that glorious, rolling countryside, studded with vineyards and the other marks of careful viticulture.

This is the inaugural release from what is shaping up to be one of Paso Robles's most interesting estates: Pius. Founded by Anthony Versochi, Pius is about making super-premium wines in this beautiful part of California. Anthony knows a thing or two of winemaking at this level - the previous item on his portfolio was head winemaker for DAOU Estate & Winery. 

Having moved to making his wines, he's taking the freedom to experiment with winemaking techniques. and this is inaugural release shows that. A Cabernet that is distinctly his own, it's a stupendously easy-to-love glass with real character and obvious craftsmanship. Anthony uses intensive heat control to carefully finesse the tannins and acidities. This has left a wine with superb balance and poise, weight and richness.

Pius has had very little press coverage so far – just one critical review. This will change later this year when the other five or six wines he has in the barrel are released; we anticipate great things!
