"Once again, I was impressed with The Paring, which is essentially the entry-level range from Matt Dees and the team behind Jonata, The Hilt and Screaming Eagle. These wines consistently deliver serious quality at budget-friendly prices." -  Antonio Galloni

***If this was from Napa, the price tag could be well into the $50 range. Seriously good juice for the money.

Is this the best non Napa value in California Cabernet today??

The notes on the Pairing from vintage to vintage are starting to sound like a broken record.

A good broken record.
It goes without saying that our biggest demand year after year circles around value-based Cabernet from California. While much of the pricing in Napa has gradually increased in recent years, wine shoppers have started to look in surrounding areas for top value ... and many outstanding producers are waiting.
Perhaps none more exciting than the Paring, a winery with Matt Dees at the helm and the team behind Jonata, The Hilt and the cult classic Screaming Eagle. However, in this case, we are not talking about a wine with a price point in the $100 range ... rather ... $22.99.
Check out the notes from Antonio Galloni on the latest release:

"The 2013 Red is bold and pungent to the core. Black cherry, mocha, black olives, spices, lavender and sage hit the palate in the 2013. This is an especially serious, structured wine for the money. The blend is 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 20% Merlot and 10% Petit Verdot. The Franc is felt in the wine's savory, expressive personality. This is a delicious wine for the money." - Antonio Galloni - Vinous

Bottom line ... this is one of the star producers in all of California ... at a price that is hard to beat. Discover it today ... before the secret is out for good!

The Paring has an extraordinary pedigree. Made from the vineyard blocks that are either too young or don’t fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed Jonata wines — The Paring is essentially a "chip off the old block". Sourced primarily from a region on the vanguard — Ballard Canyon in the Santa Ynez region. The Paring bottlings explore different blending opportunities — from the rule-bending Paring White to the wide-ranging Cabernet of winemaker Matt Dees.

The Paring makes its own rules. Vineyard experimentation is key; select vineyard sites are explored, and farmed to our rigorous standards. If and when they show us what we’re looking for, we bottle them. The Paring bottlings explore different styles and vineyards—from the dual stylistic expressions of Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay to the meticulously farmed Pinot Noir from a selection of distinctive Santa Barbara sites.
