Multiple layers of ripe fruit blend nicely with an array of earth, herb, tobacco and char. This wine has an incredible texture, which is soft, yet thick, from front to finish. The French oak adds sweetness and cigar-like qualities, while the fruit persists on velvet tannins into a long, supple finish.
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Quarry Vineyard reveals gorgeous depth in an understated, cool style. The Quarry is all about delineation and subtlety, both of which it has in spades. Mint, violet and cassis are some of the nuances that come to life in the glass as this elegant, finessed wine shows off its class and pedigree. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2028."
The Wine Advocate
"Really tannic now, with a mouth-numbing astringency that accentuates the dryness and makes the mouthfeel rather rasping. However, There's no question about the depth of flavor. This 100% Cabernet is vast in sweet blackberries and cassis, with an earthy undertone of herbs and minerality. Cellar Selection."
