Burrowing Owl Estate Winery Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 7, January 4, December 16 and November 20.

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
|Burrowing Owl’s 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon is a|
concentrated, intense, brooding wine with a lashing of powerful fruit. Mulberries, tobacco and spice dominate the nose on this handsome charmer. Cassis and slight
leafy notes lead to a supple, sumptuous and vibrant palate. You will find classy depth, richness and length, all finely drawn with strong structure and balance. This
young red is already approachable, but will improve with bottle age.
