    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1992 vintage of this wine was ranked #2 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1996

    The 2008 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon shows the intrinsic black stone fruit nuances and the soft tannin structure that define our Oakville, Napa Valley-floor Cabernet.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A huge Cabernet, in the best sense of the word. It wasn't the easiest vintage, as 2007 was, but meticulous winemaking did the job, resulting in this amazingly rich, impressively ripe wine that's drinkable now and will develop for many years. the fruits veer toward blackberries, cherries and cola, and the tannins are soft and refined. One hundred percent new French oak isn't at all heavy, lending nuances of buttered toast and sweet wood tannins. Will easily age for 15 years. Cellar Selection.

    Fabulous aromas of currants, blackberries and flowers. Licorice. Gorgeous to smell. Full-bodied, with racy tannins and smoky, spice and dark chocolate. Fresh and bright with a solid core of fruit. This is clearly better than 2007 for me. Best after 2014.
