The ruby-red '08 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon blooms with floral notes, lots of dark cherry, smoke and graphite. Fine tannins seamlessly structure the luscious fruit which cascades over the palate. Its' initial wallflower stance is a mere pose, as it quiet power lasts minutes after drinking, leaving a glowing purity, inciting one to come back for more. It will be at its best in 2 years and continue to drink well for well over a decade.

Wine AdvocateA dramatic upgrade, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve exhibits aromas of creme de cassis, burning embers, licorice and smoked herbs. It ratchets up the body, concentration and depth yet possesses silky smooth tannins and a forward style. This beauty should drink well for 15+ years.

Wine SpectatorSleek and refined, with a tart edge to the currant and wild berry flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, this is a wine of finesse and grace, finishing with a watermelon candy edge. A good bet to improve. Best from 2012 through 2022.
