The 2008 FUTO is a fruit and liquid-earth emulsion. It leads with heady aromas of dark fruit confections, graphite, violets and incense. The palate is ripe, rich and savory. Flavors focus on blackberry, licorice and cracked pepper. The Cabernet Franc underpinning brings restraint and balance. The ripeness of the vintage will make this wine more approachable in its youth, though the ample framework of tannin and acid promises graceful aging.
"Complex, ripe and alluring aromatics lead to a tight, firm, vivid mix of dark berry character, with blackberry, wild raspberry and currant. Medium- to full-bodied and remarkably elegant and refined on the palate. There's sufficient tannins, yet the acidity is crisp and refreshing. A stylish Cabernet. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot."
"The 2008 Futo is a blend of 66% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, which is slightly modified from the barrel sample I tasted last year. It reveals aromas of blueberries, raspberries, crushed rocks, graphite, black currants and forest floor. The complex aromatics are followed by a wine displaying wonderful sweetness, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel and admirable depth and power as well as finesse. This deep, promising 2008 is already concentrated and approachable."
