    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Cabernet reveals aromas of plum and blackberry intertwined with graphite, forest floor, dark chocolate and curry notes. The fruit and spice carry through on the palate adding to the multilayered texture of this wine. Supple, integrated and age-worthy tannins create a long, lush finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Plenty of aromas of spices and tobacco on the nose. It shows lots of ripe fruit with round tannins... Long and juicy on the finish. Savory and sexy.

    The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is an impressive version. Their 1975 Cabernet Sauvignon is still alive at age 35. The 2008's dense ruby/purple color is followed by an attractive bouquet of crème de cassis and charcoal. Revealing full-bodied richness and lots of depth, it is one of the finest regular Cabernet Sauvignons Phelps has made in many years. The tannins have sweetened over the last year and this impressively endowed effort, while approachable now, should age for 20+ years.
