Our 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is crafted to highlight the best qualities of our estate vineyards. Dark, rich and extracted, this wine has aromas of cassis, black cherry and currants. Balanced oak nuances add both a sweetness and roundness to this aromatic and powerful wine. Extraordinarily complex, while amazingly rich and smooth in the mouth, this wine offers superb richness and balance, and builds in intensity. The huge finishing fruit coats the entire palate.
Blend: 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 7% Syrah, 4% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Petite Sirah, 1% Malbec
"A fine Cabernet from this veteran producer, elegant and stylish. Not one of your fruit bombs, it shows modulated blackberry, currant and herb flavors, leading to a long, spicy finish. Really distinguished, although it’s not an ager. Contains a splash of Syrah and Petite Sirah for complexity and color."
