This beautifully crafted red combines power with finesse serving up layers of dense intense currant mineral mocha espresso graphite and cedary oak flavors that are full-throttled and focused with a deep churning base of smoky tannins that give this a wonderful finish. Best from 2013 through 2023. 950 cases made. -JL

Wonderfully deep aromas of black raspberry dark cherry mint minerals anise and flowers. Thick on entry then expands in the middle palate displaying a suave texture and a weightless impression for such a dense chewy wine. Boasts a tight concentrated core of black cherry fruit complicated by dark chocolate thyme and tarragon. The rising extremely long finish features black cherry raspberry and licorice flavors and even palate-saturating tannins.

After a perfect wine in 2007 I suppose the 2008 is something of a letdown. A hundred percent Cabernet Sauvignon (800 cases) this is still an outstanding wine with classic graphite creme de cassis blueberry and floral notes all well-presented in the perfumed aromatics of this full-bodied rich concentrated wine. It has some noticeable tannins to be resolved and is not as seamless and flawless as the monumental 2007. Nevertheless this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 20+ years.
