2008 CALIFORNIA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
This big Cab has a dark plum color with very rich tannins and sweet, supple french oak notes. The palate displays big fruit which explodes with huckleberry and blueberry concentration. The really sappy mid palate finishes with boysenberry, cassis and integrated vanilla tannins.
This is a classic Cab and it’s perfect with a fine aged Steak. Filet Mignon with a black peppercorn reduction, or a NY Strip with a wild mushroom and herb cream sauce. Appropriate sides are creamed spinach, scalloped potatoes and roasted beets.

87 Points & BEST BUY (Highly Recommended)
"Aromas of roasted peppers, olive tapenade, and chocolate covered nuts with a supple, fruity-yet-dry medium body and a round, juicy raspberry and blackberry finish. An attractive crowd-pleasing sipper that will cover a lot of bases."
