The 2008 Russian River Selection shows tremendous concentration and power from another strong vintage. Intense aromas of dark cherries and plums are matched with warm spices and a leathery earthiness. The palate show great depth, weight and acidity with a seductive texture leading to a balanced finished.
A perfumed and attractive nose of ripe cherry, raspberry and spice hints gives way to supple, round and generous medium-bodied flavors that possess good length and balance save for a trace of finishing warmth. The tannins are firm but not hard and while there isn’t great depth, I like both the style as well as the delivery.
