    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wonderfully pure, pretty nose of our 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is redolent of warm berry cobbler, with lovely toasted boysenberry and blackberry scents joined by hints of wild cherry, loamy earth and oak vanillin. On the supple, beautifully structured palate, the wine offers rich, vibrant blackberry, plum and black cherry flavors framed by perfectly integrated tannins and a long, savory finish. Delicious now, this elegantly sumptuous Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon will develop further nuance with another 5-7 years' bottle age.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aromas of smoldering campfire embers lead to a complex mix of dried berry, mineral and black olive, with a touch of dark berry jam. Nicely layered, clean and focused, firming the finish. Drink now through 2019. 15,000 cases made.

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a fairly straightforward wine with good varietal character. With time in the glass the wine opens up nicely. Dark plums, tobacco, grilled herbs and licorice take shape nicely in this attractive, mid-weight offering. This is a beautiful, sleek Cabernet Sauvignon. In 2008 the blend is 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 4% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.

    Excellent wine. Well rounded with good fruit, balanced tannin, and a myriad of flavors that enhance the complexity. Bought two, then ordered another six!

    Another stellar vintage from Cakebread. As I have mentioned before, I buy this wine every vintage and the 2008 doesn't disappoint. Opened the first bottle to have with friends while cooking and it was gone before we even sat down to eat.

    it was very good but, for my palate anyway, the slight increase in quality over a $20-30 dwne didn't justify the price differential
