2008 in Napa Valley was nuts. From a worst-in-decades frost early on, coupled with abnormally low rainfall, then tremendous heat spikes during flowering and harvest, it was a very challenging year. The crop size was moderate. Harvests dates were all over the board; an impossible to predict vintage. But for the discerning blender, 2008 presented an abundance of choices and flavors and, once again with skillful blending, outstanding wine was possible.
The Wine: Initial impact is of a huge core of dark fruit aroma. On the palate, the wine is best described as unbelievably silky smooth, with a velvety texture. Flavors of cassis/plum/and berry bound from the glass. The finish is unusually complex, with lovely moderate tannins, and slight pomegranate tones. Fully powerful, this wine's beguiling aromas, soft textures and a complex lingering finish are exquisite.
"This Bordeaux blend is dry, smooth and complex. There's a wonderful earthiness and herbalilty to it, with green olives complementing Cabernet's blackberry and black currant fruit, as well as the effects of oak aging.

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
