Pearson's Notes

Dark youthful purple color. Nose of berries, cassis and brown spice - expresses crushingly rich, homemade, rustic yet supple characters. Flavors have nuance of ripe Cabernet grapes, cocoa, dark chocolate, vanilla and cassis. The abundant array of flavors is supported by fine grain "chocky" texture. This vintage exhibits a balance in abundant ripe tannins and serious fruit - grape skin extraction and French oak provides a tasting experience that begins delightful, broadens and expands on the palate - a brooding, supple, finely textured wine.

Beautifully crafted, rich, intense and powerful, yet supple, graceful and polished, offering a generous core of spicy blackberry, black licorice, wild berry and light cedary notes. Full-bodied and expressive, this is both approachable now and sure to improve for several years. Drink now through 2020. 15,618 cases made. Wine Spectator 94 Points

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection is the first example of this cuvee to include Merlot (about 14%) in the blend. The Merlot component has given the wine a cocoa/chocolate nuance to its black currant, licorice-infused fruit. The tannins are velvety soft and the wine is beautifully textured and full-bodied. It is ideal for drinking now and over the next 15 years. Wine Advocate 94 Points
