Winemaker Notes

Healthy rains in winter and spring set up the vines perfectly and allowed for stress free conditions from veraison to harvesting. On the nose the 2008 shiraz shows earthy gravel, spicy licorice and dense dark mulberries, while the sweet upfront berry fruit presented on tasting gives way to complex cedar, earth and spice notes, wrapping up with ample structure and grip. The vibrant, juicy fruit runs the length of the palate and lingers with a "have another glass" finish.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator

Polished and round, with raspberry, blackberry and spice flavors that dance easily over the fine tannins on the finish. Drink now. 7,000 cases imported.

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Deep ruby-red. Blackcurrant, mocha, licorice and spices on the smoky nose. Juicy, spicy and firm-edged, with a medicinal quality to its dark fruit flavors. Pretty serious for the price point, showing no easy sweetness and finishing with solid back-end grip and an echoing licorice note.

WE 88
Wine Enthusiast

Offers plenty of intensity and suppleness, but lacks a touch of freshness. Still, its dark flavors of cooked-down fruit offer enjoyment over the near term when paired with the right dish, like a savory meatloaf.

RP 87
The Wine Advocate

Purple-colored, it exhibits a nose of violets, plums, and blueberry. Easy-going and friendly on the palate, it has plenty of ripe flavor and a smooth finish.

W&S 87
Wine & Spirits

There’s good juice at the heart of this wine, blueberry scented fruit surrounded by coffee like tannins and gingery acidity. It’s thick and ripe, for a charry steak or seared duck breast.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
