    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 growing season was challenging to say the least. A cool and relatively dry winter led to bud break in mid-March. An unexpected frost in late spring followed by high winds caused "shatter" resulting in smaller berries and lighter yields. Warm temperatures during the summer with cool evenings brought along verasion at the normally expected time of mid-July. However, the latter part of September and into October brought cooler than normal conditions, slowing down ripening of berries but allowing more hang time on the vines. While 2008 was a challenging year, the resulting vintage displays well developed flavor profiles with balanced acidity.

    Eberle's Vineyard Selection Cabernet Sauvignon displays 100% varietal characteristics blended from several distinguished Paso Robles vineyards, including Eberle Estate. Approachable and enjoyable in its youth, lush with flavors of wild berries, cassis and moderate tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is a beautiful Cabernet to drink now with a good steak. It’s rich and complex in blackberry and black currant flavors, and is very dry, with lingering acidity. The tannins are thick but fine. The best Cabernet from Eberle in memory. Drink now.
