What the critics are saying…
2008 Vintage Selection Cabernet Sauvignon – 92 Points
The dense ruby colored 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection Estate reveals sweet aromas of crème de cassis, cedarwood and spice box in its classic Bordeaux Pauillac-like personality. Medium to full-bodied with sweet tannins, this rich, layered 2008 exhibits abundant black fruit notes intertwined with hints of espresso and earth. Approachable now, it should drink well for two decades.
