Tasting Notes

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 Year

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.
