2008 Cabernet Sauvignon
2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

The 2008 vintage of this remarkable 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was a very small production (only 599 cases) and we anticipate that this wine will sell out quickly.  Twenty-five months in new French Haute Futaie oak barrels adds a dimension of toasty vanilla to the intense candied fruit and allspice aromas.

91 Points. Gold Medal. Exceptional. Bevarage Testing Institute. Dark garnet black color. Honeycomb, roasted nuts, dried cherry and tomato, and spicy cassis pie a la mode aromas and flavors with a silky, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a chewy, chocolate and earth accented finish. A great earthy sipper and table wine; serve with prime rib.

97 Points. Cellar Selection. Wine Enthusiast. This low production, 100% Cab offers the most perfectly ripe black currant fruit, with complicating hints of pencil lead, violets, dark chocolate shavings and, of course, lots of toasty oak. The fact that it’s now more than five years old has helped to mellow it, but the tannins are still quite hard. The beautiful estate vineyard sits high in the Vaca Mountains, which helps to account for the wine’s intensity and concentration. This is truly a world-class Cabernet that will age through at least 2032. - S. Heimoff (May, 2014)

2008 Cabernet Sauvignon

90 Points The Wine Advocate/Robert Parker The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty, layered wine graced with lovely delineation in its dark red fruit, licorice, tobacco, and sweet herbs. This is a relatively mid-weight style. All of the elements flow gracefully to the delineated, focused finish. Anticipated maturity 2013-2023. - Antonio Galloni (December, 2011)
