Winemaker Notes

C.C. Ranch is planted in Rutherford, along the slope of a knoll west of the Silverado Trail. The 2008 C.C. Ranch has many layers of flavors that are quite distinct. Dark cherry fruit with hints of violet mix with black tea and earth to lend an exotic character to the wine. The natural "Rutherford Dust" and toasty French oak complement the fruit. The silky entry gets fleshier as the fine tannins from this vintage build on the middle palate and progress into a long, smooth finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
The Wine Advocate

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch Vineyard is one of the more immediate wines in this line up. It shows lovely persistence in its attractive, dark red fruit, flowers, licorice and tobacco, but then tapers off a bit on the finish. This is one of the simpler wines here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023.

Wine Enthusiast

Offers a blast of sweet red cherry candy flavor, accented with new oak notes of buttered toast and caramel. There’s no question this 100% Cabernet is delicious, but it’s also fiercely tannic. Makes the gums quiver. Should develop in the bottle over the next seven years.
