Winemaker Notes

The Forman 2008 possesses a dense plushy red color. Immediately pleasurable and full blown Bordeaux varietal fruitiness in a ripeish sense captures one's attention after an initial acquaintance with the wines' aromatics. A concentration and multi-layered intrigue opens quickly after a bit of aeration. Rich tobacco with a mocha note is at the edges of a beautifully plumy and then berry fruitiness. The typical Forman licorice/violet is yet another layer deeper under the initial forward fruitiness. The aromatics seem endless in depth. Flavors too are complex and rich as the nose and color would indicate. A long chocolately-berry finish refreshed with just the right level of acidity leaves lasting impressions. This is a great sequel to the wonderful '07, perhaps its twin or better in quality with just a bit more plush. Do not miss out on this one!

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 93
Wine Spectator
Tightly wound, firm, dense and concentrated, with a core of dark berry, plum, roasted herb, game meat, graphite, road tar and lead pencil, ending with chewy tannins. Should reward cellaring. Best from 2012 through 2022.

Founded in 1983 and located at the base of Howell Mountain, overlooking the town of St. Helena, Forman Vineyard produces 2000 cases each of Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. All grapes are grown on the three estate vineyards, two on the mountain above and one on the valley floor in the Rutherford Bench appellation.

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
