    Winemaker's Notes:

    This classic 2008 Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon has intense aromas of cassis and crushed berries. Flavors of blackberry, raspberry, cedar and tobacco are framed by firm, velvety tannins and a long, elegant finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Another outstanding effort as well as a sleeper of the vintage is the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon. Composed of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot and the rest Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot, it possesses a dense ruby/purple color, deep, medium to full-bodied flavors, lots of black currant, underbrush and loamy soil notes intertwined with a hint of oak, and a robust, extroverted, impressive finish. This wine should drink well for at least a decade. Moreover, just under 40,000 cases were produced.

    complex, deep, long finish, fruit throughout with a hint of earth, very flexible compliment to cheese beef and pork meaty fish, particularly swordfish.
