The 2008 Pickberry is dark and dense in appearance with perfumed, ripe Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot aromas. Scents of red currant, cured tobacco leaf, and musk herald the chewy cassis flavors that highlight the impressively dense, spicy, mineral-driven, and remarkably soft floral finish.
Blend: 59% Merlot, 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec, 1% Petit Verdot
Mostly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, this latest release starts out black, generously tannic in scents of mushrooms and pine, with a grand red fruit presence that plumps up in the glass. Over the course of several days, the wine gains energy, its initial richness turning silky, its tannins spicy fresh as they rocket the fruit past the horizon line. Cellar this for ten years to get the most out of the bottle.
