Private Reserve 2008 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
A cult Cabernet from Oakville, Rutherford, and St Helena's best vineyards.
The vintage was marked by low yields but, ultimately, moderate temperatures during harvest (following an earlier heat spike) allowed optimum hang time and outstanding quality with balance and structure. Currant, black licorice, tobacco and graphite are followed by sexy cedary oak notes. Seamless and opulent across the palate with creamy yet vibrant dark fruit flavors with a long, lingering finish.
Style: Full, Bold
