The middle palate is full and soft with sophisticated fruit from the Angle Block section of the vineyard. The fruit is fully focused in a way which allows opinions to be drawn, as well as a call for patience with this wine. The vineyard is starting to show its pedigree more assertively as each year strengthens the plantings. My thanks go out to all the work Chris Hoon has done at this vineyard.
Blend: 42% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 9% Malbec
"he 2008 Two Blondes is a blend of 42% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, and 9% Malbec. Sexy, spicy, complex aromas lead to a savory, plush, rich offering with outstanding volume, grip, and length. It is more forward than the two preceding wines and will continue to deliver pleasure through 2020."
The Wine Advocate
"Lithe and silky, showing sweet plum and spice flavors at the core, with hints of oolong tea and cream tingeing the finish. This has elegance and charm. Drink now through 2018."
