Not that dark crimson. Very interesting, minerally nose. Lovely texture and sweet start is counterbalanced by beautifully judged refreshment on the end. Complete and sybaritic. 17.5/20 points.
One of the better values in high end Napa Cabernet, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. Elegant Bordeaux-like aromas of berries, loamy soil, graphite, mocha, black currants and cedar are followed by a medium-bodied, stylish wine with excellent texture, underlying floral notes and a long finish. Nearly as French-like as Napa’s Dominus wines, it should age effortlessly for 10-15 years. (RP)
Bright, dark red. Perfumed aromas of cassis, blackberry, violet and eucalyptus, with a light porty suggestion. Silky, savory and large-scaled if not especially sweet, with the black fruit flavors coming across as smooth and a bit soft. Finishes with supple, easygoing tannins but the slowly mounting aftertaste displays surprising length. A late note of menthol contributes to the wine's savory character. (ST)
Tightly wound, firm, dense and concentrated, with a core of dark berry, plum, roasted herb, game meat, graphite, road tar and lead pencil, ending with chewy tannins. Should reward cellaring. Best from 2012 through 2022. (JL)
