(2008 Vintage) Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes.
had this with a porterhouse steak. 18.08.2010 the first impression was a fine tight Knit burgundy opened up after 15-20 minutes to a fine silky cab, with slight vanilla flavours. after an hour the wine had turned and tasted a bit like a port wine..... comment: this vintage should probably have drunk already some years ago... interested in hearing other comments on same vintage

Wine Spectator(2013 Vintage) This zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant flavors, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins. The long and powerful yet refined aftertaste keeps reverberating fruit generosity while maintaining Cabernet's strength of personality.
