Deep red with dense purple hue. Aromas of intense red fruit with some hints of licorice, floral and cocoa. This is a full-bodied, dense rich wine with a soft, long finish. The tannins are elegant and beautifully textured as expected from Stags Leap District.
"This is a frankly delicious young Cabernet, hailing from a small vineyard to showcase its qualities. It's deeply flavored in blackberries and currants, with the most delicious dark chocolate sweetness. Yet is also has the tannic backbone to last. It's one of those wines you can drink now, or age for at least six years to see what it can do."
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Tomahawk Vineyard is a bigger, richer wine than the straight Cabernet Sauvignon, but it isn’t as materially better or more complex as the price difference suggests it might be. Firm, yet well-integrated tannins support a core of dark red fruit, flowers, mint and licorice in this bold, structured Cabernet Sauvignon. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023."
