Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) "This vintage smells like rose petals, tobacco and Asian spices mingled with cassis and cherry, and the aromas follow seamlessly to the palate, where there's just a hint of bittersweet chocolate and a squeeze of citrus that brightens everything up. Full-bodied with supple tannins, the finish is long, with lingering spice and roasted coffee bean notes."- K&L Wines

    good, but not good enough for the price. better on the second day. 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard come across as quite dark and fleshy in its blackberries, plums, licorice tobacco and spices. It shows excellent depth through to the generous, textured finish. The 2008 is already a bit forward in its aromas and flavors, suggesting it needs to be enjoyed sooner rather than later. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (12/2011)
