Bright and deep crimson hues adorn the rim of the glass. The nose opens with ripe black cherries, plums and nutmeg while a note of sage give a sense of freshness. On the palate, the flavor’s intensity and persistence intertwine with firm tannins, then dissolve into a soft velvety finish that can only be described as luscious.
Robert Parker 93 points - The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve possesses striking richness and power. This voluptuous, large-scaled wine flows with layers of perfumed, red cherries, spices, licorice and new leather, showing stunning opulence and depth. Woven throughout are floral notes that add lift as well as a sense of proportion. This is an impressive showing. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. (Dec 2011)
