Winemaker Notes

The 2008 IX Estate Red Wine is all about the aromas of the terroir. The 2008 vintage across the board has resulted in wines that first and foremost reflect their sense of place. The nose of the IX Estate is pure crushed rocks, clay and minerals at first, and with air the savory aromas of musk and bay leaf come through. Decadent notes of black licorice, black cherry and cassis bring succulence to the nose. The wine is silky soft up front on the palate, but then develops into deliciously layered tannins.

Critical Acclaim

WE 99
Wine Enthusiast
This is an absolutely beautiful wine to drink now, but the richness comes at the price of considerable alcohol. The color is dark and impenetrable, the aromas huge in Cabernet-inspired blackberries and black currants, with a touch of something herbal and also a stony minerality. There’s also a fascinating peatiness, like an Islay Scotch. It really opens up in the glass, becoming ever more complex. It’s great Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, but that high alcohol may limit its ageability.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The opaque purple-hued 2008 IX Proprietary Red, a blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc and the balance Petit Verdot (also slightly modified from last year), reveals notes of espresso roast, blueberries, black currants and lead pencil shavings. The wine reveals superb concentration and richness as well as a structured mouthfeel. It begs for 4-5 years of cellaring and should drink well for 20-30+ years.
