This new label from Icon Estates makes an impressive debut with this high-value cabernet sauvignon from the up-and-coming Paso Robles region. It's a full-bodied, lush, complex red wine with an impressive layering of black cherry, smoked meat, herb and chocolate flavors. For a Central Coast cabernet, it does a decent Napa Valley imitation at a very un-Napa price. It's quite accessible now but should age well for five to eight years.
