Natalie's Score: 93/100

Classic Californian cabernet with aromas of cassis and blackberry, with some smoky oak. Perfect for dinner parties. Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: Angus beef steaks and wild mushrooms.

Napa’s 2008 vintage saw tricky conditions early on, which naturally limited vineyard yields. Skilled winemakers turned this to their advantage, making powerful wines of great depth and concentration. Intense cassis, black cherry, hickory smoke, cinnamon and cardamom. Robust and full bodied with a gorgeous velvety texture. Layered complexity with fine poise throughout. Cellar this pleasurable powerhouse of a Cabernet 2-4 years, or decant and savour. Source: Vintages Wine Panel
