Layered and complex, our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon demonstrates a genuine sense of place and exquisite balance. First, scents of plums, black cherries, ﬂowers and gravel emerge. Then, aromas of melting dark chocolate, toast, coffee bean and earth start to show. Soft, polished tannins cradle an amazing core of ripe dark fruits and subtle minerality. The supple mouthfeel leads seamlessly to a long, elegant ﬁnish.
The 2008 growing season had a mind of its own. The vines starting blooming late, but ended up ripening early. Because of the compressed season, we had to work a little harder to tend our vines properly. Nonetheless, we were thrilled with the outcome. The 2008 vintage displays very supple fruit ﬂavors, perfectly balanced with crisp acidity.
