    Winemaker's Notes:

    For the 2008 vintage, very ripe fruit was picked in selective areas throughout the Estate to express a brighter ripe Cabernet style for CASK. Dark, ripe cherry is the predominant characteristic, along with vanilla and hints of floral and spice notes. The mouthfeel is very rich and round with some sweet creaminess on the palate and a fresh fruit finish.

    Try one of these wonderful pairings of grilled lamb chops, beef tenderloin, braised lamb shanks, a hearty stew, or a beef burger with all the fixings.

    Critical Acclaim:

    An exceptionally good wine, right up there with the fantastic 2007 Cask. Classic Rutherford Cabernet, dry, softly tannic and delicious, with herb-infused blackberry and cherry fruit. Definitively not in the modern style of fat overripeness, but balanced and elegant. Shows all the hallmarks of an ageable wine, but you can drink it now. It gets better and better as it breathes in the glass.

    Black fruit, spice, cocoa, tobacco and smokey oak. Nice balance and acidity. Worth the price, so long as its under $60 a bottle.

    Jammy fruit over a fine nose of cassis, spice, cedar and oak. Delicious with a fine mid-palate and 30 second finish. At $65 a good deal for a fine Rutherford cab.
