2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Lot 200 is one of our finest values from one of California's top 5 cult wineries. Dense garnet in the glass with a perfectly ripe and elegant nose.
Lot 200 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet is primarily a blend of cabernet from three of Napa’s greatest sub-districts: Stags Leap, Oakville, and Rutherford. Dense garnet in the glass with a perfectly ripe and elegant nose. Vibrant aromas of crushed plums and crème de cassis are elegantly framed by dark chocolate and black licorice notes. The wine is firm across the palate with exceptional balance and a powerful structure that is just beginning to develop in the bottle.
Style: Full, Bold
Flavors: Cassis, Chocolate, Plum
While this is our most expensive Lot to date, I truly believe Lot 200 is one of our finest values, if not our best deal ever. The winery we sourced this from doesn’t sell a bottle of wine for under, well, let’s just say $100 to keep things a little bit more, shall we say, 'opaque'. Seriously, the NDA on this deal had two pages of words and phrases we were not allowed to use in relation to our marketing of the wine and, since we hope to be able to do this long term with these folks, I want to be sure to leave plenty of doubt. Suffice it to say they are one of Napa’s greatest wine estates/companies with plenty of 100 point scores.
