Winemakers' Tasting Notes: 
At the recent vertical tasting, Alan described this vintage as “big and vibrant, with nice chocolate character, layered with overwhelming aromas of red currant and red cherry.” The 2008 vintage Napa wines have been described as “denser and more refined” than the wines from the preceding vintage in 2007 (Wine Spectator, 11/15/12). Smooth sweet tannins bring forth more flavors of red fruits, minerality, and an impressively full-bodied finish for this blend. Decant & enjoy over the next 15 years.

A Word from the Wine Reviews:
Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Enticing, complex nose…Broad, lush and smooth, with pretty floral lift to the red fruit and spice flavors.  Nicely delineated in the middle palate and long on the back end. (92 points)

The Wine Enthusiast: Shows the luscious fruit and softness of previous vintages, with rich, layered raspberry, cherry, cassis, vanilla, caramelized oak and spice flavors that go on and on into a long finish…(90 points)

The California Grapevine: Attractive, plummy, complex, cedary, dark cherry fruit aroma with herbal notes and hints of chocolate and mint; full body; textured, cedary, cassis and blackberry fruit flavors… Very highly recommended.
