    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 Rutherford is sure to be a classic with intense black fruit, plenty of "Dust" and a seductive, plush texture that promises a long and luxurious future. This is a wine to pair with roasted leg of lamb or, if you can resist, one that will develop gracefully in the cellar for many years to come.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A lovely Cabernet, dry and dustily tannic, with a complex array of flavors. The black cherries and cola are accompanied by firm mineral and earthy notes that make this strikingly different from your typical fruit-forward Cabernet, but then, the alcohol is a modest 13.7% by volume. All indications are of ageability. Could age at least eight years in the cellar. Cellar Selection.

    Supple and stylish, this is a rich blend of cabernets sauvignon and franc from the Rutherford Bench. The tannins are round and chocolately, providing a cocoa-like dusting over the fruit, and a sweet Christmas spice scent to frame it. This needs time to evolve past its concentrated flavors toward greater detail.
