The fruit for the 2008 vintage was picked between September 13th and October 14th, 2008, with an average Brix at Harvest of 25.52. After 7-9 days of fermentation on the skins, the resulting wine was pressed and finished fermentation in Stainless Steel tanks. The wine was then aged on new and used French and American Oak for 4-6 months.
Dark garnet in color with a bouquet that is full of dark berry fruit, such as Blueberry, Blackberry and Black Cherry. Oak aging has contributed just a hint of smoke to the nose. The round, creamy wine delivers an abundance of the fruit flavors promised by the olfactory. The fruit and oak are well integrated and the complexity of the wine plays on the tongue long after the wine has been ingested.
This is our go to Cab. Always reliable. Ridiculously affordable. Great for large gatherings.
Good round mouth feel, balance is good, not a lot of depth
Wonderful, the caramel note surprising and delightful.
Lauren and I both loved!!!
A wine you give away.
