The 2008 is absolute stunner and has an approachability that often comes from a cooler vintage. Despite bagging on the raters quite often, Robert Parker, successfully noted it at that time when he pointed out in his 95-point review that it was “one of the top successes of the vintage”. He was 100% right. This ones ready to go!

 

"One of the top successes of the vintage, this blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot was harvested between October 8 and 24. The late harvest ensured perfect ripeness as evidenced by the sweet bouquet of black cherries, lead pencil shavings, cassis and subtle barbecue smoke. Well-balanced with good acidity, ripe tannins, medium to full body and a layered mouthfeel." -Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
