Bright ruby-red. Medicinal aromas of black cherry, blueberry, minerals, bitter chocolate and licorice; a real essence of Spring Mountain cabernet. Dense, deep and juicy, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the flavors of black raspberry, dark chocolate and minerals. Finishes with serious mountain tanins and excellent aromatic lift and length. This has filled in nicely since I tasted it last winter from barrel, but will require at least several years of bottle aging and may ultimately merit an even higher score. (ST)
The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a dark, brooding wine bursting with dark red fruit, game, ash, licorice and minerals. The wine shows great energy and focus in a pure, driven style. Today the tannins remain a bit firm and the wine is a little tight, but this will be beautiful in another few years. There is also a subtle trace of smoke taint that comes through here. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. (AG)
Rich and full-bodied, intense and saturated, with potent mocha-laced currant, blackberry, mineral, sage and cedar notes, ending with a plush, tannic finish. Needs time and aeration.
