Winemaker's Notes

The Bully is a dense wine chock-full of power and grace from the heart of Red Mountain.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

"Soft and ripe, with an open feel to the sassafras-accented blackberry and currant fruit. The ripe flavors linger persistently on the gentle finish."
93 Points

"The 2008 The Bully Cabernet Sauvignon contains 15% Petit Verdot and was aged in 100% new French oak. Fragrant aromas of sandalwood, exotic spices, violets, earthy minerals, and assorted black fruits are followed by a sweetly-fruited, plush, layered wine with outstanding volume and balance. This lengthy effort will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring and will deliver prime drinking through 2023."
