As with the Shiraz Viognier, the 2008 Book Ends Cabernet Sauvignon proved a little finer than its 2007 vintage. Very deep garnet-purple in color, it is youthfully mute at this stage with moderately intense aromas of crushed blackberry, blueberry, dark chocolate, pencil shavings and cloves. Crisp with a medium level of very fine tannins, it is both concentrated and elegant in the mouth with plenty of fruit and a very long finish. Give it another year or two in bottle and consider drinking it 2012 to 2020.
