Bottle Size : 750 mL
ABV : 14.1%
Complex aromas of dark cherry,
dried fruits, earth, cedar, and vanilla cream along with hints
of licorice and leather.
The palate opens with big, chewy tannin— firm but not coarse—and builds even bigger into a midpalate loaded with ripe red fruits and dried black fruits.
There is a good, strong acid
backbone completing the balance and structure. The barrel flavors are well integrated throughout but are best evident in the warm and spicy finish.
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a gorgeous, mid-weight wine laced with mint, cassis, sweet herbs and tobacco. It is an understated, gracious wine from start to finish. This is a relatively approachable vintage for the Estate. It shows tons of finesse and mid-palate generosity while maintaining a medium-bodied personality. Today it is quite young, although it is drinking well. Readers who prefer more tertiary notes will want to cellar the wine for at least a few years. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2028.
