The 2008 Pickberry is dark and dense in appearance with
perfumed, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and
Petit Verdot aromas. Scents of red currant, cured tobacco leaf,
and musk herald the chewy cassis flavors that highlight the
impressively dense, spicy, mineral-driven, and remarkably
soft floral finish.
Blend: 59% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
"Mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this latest release starts out black, generously tannic in scents of mushrooms and pine, with a grand red fruit presence that plumps up in the glass. Over the course of several days, the wine gains energy, its initial richness turning silky, its tannins spicy fresh as they rocket the fruit past the horizon line. Cellar this for ten years to get the most out of the bottle. "
