"Aromas of smoldering campfire embers lead to a complex mix of dried berry, mineral and black olive, with a touch of dark berry jam. Nicely layered, clean and focused, firming the finish. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made. " (WS)

"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a fairly straightforward wine with good varietal character. With time in the glass the wine opens up nicely. Dark plums, tobacco, grilled herbs and licorice take shape nicely in this attractive, mid-weight offering. This is a beautiful, sleek Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2008 the blend is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016." (WA)

Winery Notes:
This lush yet focused wine expresses elegant black cherry, plum and cassis fruit offset by notes of chocolate, herbs and cedar with a supple texture and a structure of balanced fruit and tannin confirmed on the finish.
