(From 2008 Vintage) Take note, the 2008 Napa Cabernet from small hillside vineyards in Calistoga and Oak Knoll may be the valedictorian of our Fall release wines, but it's also seriously delicious. Epic aromas range from black currant, clove and cassis, to toasty oak spice and Ticonderoga pencil. Vibrant and vividly rendered, the story unfolds with ripe fruit character, polished round texture and some sweet tobacco footnotes. The final chapter is beautifully bound and brought to focus by moderate chocolaty tannins. 2,000 cases produced.
