Slightly better is the 4000 case 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa cuvee. It offers up complex aromas of tobacco leaf graphite damp earth blackberries and black currants full-bodied power and more density depth and structure than the Cross Barn. Already drinkable it should age effortlessly for two decades.

Firm tight and compact with a trim mix of dried currant berry and red and black licorice. This unfolds gracefully showing a mineral and sage edge before firming on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 4045 cases made. -JL

Potent expressive aromas of cassis and cherry pie with an intense spicy overtone. Round but quite structured and assertive on the palate offering sweet red and dark berry preserve flavors and a touch of bitter cherry. Silky tannins add shape to the very long spicy penetrating finish. Nicely structured without being at all hard.
